David Ayer’s Bright Trailer #3


Netflix has just released a new trailer for their upcoming original film Bright, which is essentially their first big budget “blockbuster” complete with A-list cast, extensive special effects and even its very own original soundtrack. The movie is directed by David Ayer (Suicide Squad, End of Watch) and it is a fantasy / buddy cop mash up that takes place in an alternate reality where magic is real and elves and orcs live alongside humans. Will Smith and Joel Edgerton play two LAPD cops (one of which is an orc) who must overcome their personal differences to protect a long-lost relic. The race metaphor seems pretty on the nose but if the rest of the movie is fun perhaps that won’t matter. Noomi Rapace, Lucy Fry, Edgar Ramirez, Ike Barinholtz, Enrique Murciano and Jay Hernandez co-star. Bright arrives on Netflix on Dec. 22nd; check out the new trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.

    This was really cool when it was called “Alien Nation,” so we’ll see how it turns out this time.
