Netflix continues to forge ahead with their plans to take on the big boys in movies as well as TV, despite the critical bomb that was Brad Pitt’s War Machine. The next big effort will come in December with Will Smith and Bright. You can’t say it’s not ambitious. I really didn’t think you could come up with a more diverse, racially-divided LA, but…hats off to David Ayer for bringing elves into the mix. It looks like it could be great or awful with absolutely no middle ground.
The movie was directed by Max Landis and it also stars Noomi Rapace, Edgar Ramírez, Ike Barinholtz, and Brad William Henke. Bright will be available to stream on Netflix starting on December 22, 2017
Set in an alternate present-day where humans, orcs, elves, and fairies have been co-existing since the beginning of time. Bright is genre-bending action movie that follows two cops from very different backgrounds. Ward (Smith) and Jakoby (Joel Edgerton), embark on a routine patrol night and encounter a darkness that will ultimately alter the future and their world as they know it.
