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. Scripted by Max Landis and directed by David Ayer (Suicide Squad), the action-thriller takes place in an alternate present day in which humans live alongside magic folk like elves and orcs. Get ready for the world of Bright, a new Netflix Original Film, also starring Joel Edgerton.
We get a better look at the insane, mish-mash world at hand in Bright and more hints towards other magical characters, as well as some good-old fun had by Will Smith.
The new trailer tries to work in plenty of wisecracks, which might leave you wondering how well the comedy will co-exist with the gritty urban setting and the supernatural-is-serious-business elements.
It follows the story of two LAPD police officers played by Smith (Officer Ward) and Edgerton (Officer Jakoby) who form a most unlikely duo (one is a human and the other is an Orc) working to keep the mean streets of Los Angeles safe from a dark, sinister underworld. Specifically, a magic wand that one character describes in the trailer as "a nuclear weapon that grants wishes". It's also a buddy-cop flick.
But then, perhaps we should have known that earlier, judging by director Ayer's introduction of the film's first trailer at San Diego Comic Con earlier this year. I was able to do my shit.
Bright is set to bow on Netflix on December 22.
Judging by the trailer, it's clear that all of the money is up there on the screen.
