FIRST LOOK: Bright starring Will Smith & Joel Edgerton on Netflix – Official Trailer

What happens when Sci-Fi/ Fantasy meets Buddy Cop? You get Will Smith & Joel Edgerton in Netflix’s Bright.

UPDATE: Bright should not have been categorized as a buddy cop film.

According to The Wrap, “David Ayer’s movie is set in an alternate present-day where humans, orcs, elves, and fairies have been co-existing since the beginning of time. But the orcs look to be very much the underclass in the new movie, and Smith’s curse-filled comparisons of the species to Shrek in the new trailer underscore the divide. Ward (Smith) and Jakoby (Edgerton) embark on a routine patrol night and encounter a darkness that will ultimately alter the future and their world as they know it.”

Noomi Rapace, Lucy Fry, Edgar Ramirez, Margaret Cho , and Ike Barinholtz also star in the Max Landis penned film. Watch the official trailer below, and catch Bright on Netflix, December 2017.
