Humans, Orcs, Elves and all manners of fairytale creatures leave together in the world of Bright, a fantasy action film set in modern day Los Angeles.
“Set in a world where mystical creatures live side by side with humans. A human cop is forced to work with an Orc to find a weapon everyone is prepared to kill for.”
With a $90 million production budget Bright is the most expensive movie yet for streaming service Netflix and looking at this trailer you can tell where all that money went. But of course a big budget can only take you so far, at the end of the day it’s a good story that will keep people watching. So will this have a good story? Don’t know, but it’s a very cool idea, Lord of the Rings meets Training Day, definitely a new take on things we’ve seen before, although I’m not sure how far they’re willing to take it. Here’s hoping Bright is good and Netflix keeps investing in new things that might otherwise have a harder time finding an audience in theaters.
Bright was directed by David Ayer and written by Max Landis. Starring in the movie are Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Noomi Rapace, Edgar Ramirez and more. Bright will be available worldwide on Netflix come December 22nd.
