David Ayer and Max Landis wrote Bright, the new Will Smith Fantasy/Adventure/Buddy Cop movie set to release on Netflix in December 2017. Ayer also directs this $90 million dollar film where present day and fantasy worlds collide. Think of it as Alien Nation meets Lord of the Rings. Check out the new trailer below.
Here’s what we know so far:
Set in a world where mystical creatures live side by side with humans. A human cop is forced to work with an Orc to find a weapon everyone is prepared to kill for.

This is just the latest in Netflix’s new trend in buying movies. Netflix recently paid $100 million for Martin Scorsese‘s The Irishman, starring Robert DeNiro, and $60 million for War Machine starring Brad Pitt. Skipping the theater might be the new trend for streaming services, as both Amazon’s Manchester by the Seas and Netflix’s The White Helmets won Oscars this year.
What do you think? For those of you without a Netflix account, would Bright get you signed up for one?
