Yesterday San Diego was all about Jigsaw Killers and Killer clowns who make things float, then there was Will Smith, the fairy killer. The Suicide Squad star hasn’t had the best of times box office wise and will reteam with David Ayers in Bright Netflix’s $100million fantasy flick. Back in March we got a taster when the streaming giants released a teaser, yesterday they unveiled the full trailer at Comic Con and today we have the full trailer.
This maybe a fantasy, with Orcs, Elves, fairies and reptilian creatures this not a family movie. As you watch the trailer it starts as if it’s an LAPD Cop drama but as you’ll see his partner (played by Joel Edgerton) is an Orc. The first half of the trailer shows the diversity of the movie and that racism will be one of the big features for the movie. Ayer is no stranger to Cop movies with Street Kings and End Of Watch. He will be hoping Bright will help wipe away the negativity to the Suicide Squad bringing something a little more surreal to Netflix. The streaming Platform must have faith in him providing a bigger budget and ambition to challenge cinemas, but will Pedro Almodovar be watching?
Set in an alternate present-day, 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 deadly, thought-to-be-forgotten relic, which in the wrong hands could destroy everything.
Since that teaser earlier in the year we now have a confirmed release date of 22nd December globally, exclusively on Netflix including the UK& Ireland.
Bright also stars Noomi Rapace, Lucy Fry, Edgar Ramirez, Ike Barinholtz, Enrique Murciano, Jay Hernandez, Andrea Navedo, Veronica Ngo, Alex Meraz, Margaret Cho, Brad William Henke, Dawn Olivieri, and Kenneth Choi.
