YouTube – 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 (Will 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.

The movie is written by Max Landis (Chronicle) and produced by Ayer, Eric Newman (Narcos) and Bryan Unkeless (The Hunger Games). The Netflix Original Film will launch globally this December.
This could be an amazing movie. For years I’ve read Max Landis complain about how studios do not want to make original films. I also know how studio executives like dipping their fingers into the creative side of things because, well frankly I don’t know the answer to that. It seems like they should just trust the creative people they’ve hired but what do I know. I’m just a guy, sitting in front of a computer, writing about studio executives. What was I getting at? So here’s Netflix, a company who believes in letting freedom thrive. So there’s a lot riding on this for Max and company. From what I can tell in this short trailer, it looks pretty damn good.
