Director David Ayer and screenwriter Max Landis have combined their talents to set up an interesting concept: What if modern day Los Angeles was a Dungeons & Dragons world where elves, goblins, orcs, fairies, and other magical creatures lived side-by-side with humans, what would that look like? The answer is Bright, a high-concept, big budget action fantasy coming out in time for Christmas, like these things usually do. The difference this time is that Bright is launching on Netflix, but despite that, the new trailer reveals that no expense was spared for this streaming video effort.
This trailer was posted this evening shortly after the Netflix movie panel at San Diego Comic Con. Bright re-teams Ayers with his Suicide Squad stars Will Smith and Joel Edgerton as LAPD Officers Ward and Jakoby. Ward is a human, and Jakoby is an orc, and together they patrol the mean, magical streets of the City of Angels, and then they run into something truly magical. What follows is what might be described as the $#!% hitting the fan.
Check out the trailer for Bright below:
Plot Synopsis: Set in an alternate present-day where humans, orcs, elves and fairies have been coexisting since the beginning of time, this action-thriller directed by David Ayer (Suicide Squad, End of Watch, writer of Training Day) follows two cops from very different backgrounds. Ward, a human (Will Smith), and Jakoby, an orc (Joel Edgerton), embark on a routine night patrol that will alter the future of their world as they know it. Battling both their own personal differences as well as an onslaught of enemies, they must work together to protect a young female elf and a thought-to-be-forgotten relic, which in the wrong hands could destroy everything.
Bright will be
in theatres on Netflix everywhere on December 22.
