Netflix has released the second official trailer to their first major blockbuster, David Ayer’s Bright. Ayer’s new film stars Will Smith and Joel Edgerton as two cops from two very different backgrounds. Smith plays Ward, a human, and Edgerton play Jakoby, an orc. While they begin their nightly routine patrol, the two not only battle their own personal differences and an army of enemies, but they must work together to protect a deadly relic that, if in the wrong hands, could alter their world forever.
Before this new trailer was released (yesterday morning I might add), I was somewhat looking forward to this movie. I’m a big fan of David Ayer, and hold nothing against him from the Warner Bros. stink pile that is Suicide Squad. While that is the case, I’m just not the biggest fan of the fantasy genre. Not to say I don’t mind it, because I do, but it’s just never been a genre or aspect of a film that has attracted me like others. After watching this trailer though, I’m really loving what I’m seeing. Is the fantasy element a big part? Most definitely, but having the human elements combined with it really eases the load. Not to mention that the world Ayer has created, it seems extremely interesting. It’s basically the harder version of the Jeff Bridges, Ryan Reynolds stinker R.I.P.D.
The footage features some great looking shots, with Ayer even throwing is some awesome slow-mo moments. Will Smith looks like Will Smith again, back to the action and quick one-liners. Joel Edgerton looks great as well, as his character will no doubt be battling some massive demons as he is the first orc Police Officer. Sadly, this movie won’t be in theaters as it’s a Netflix movie. I usually don’t mind that, but this looks like a movie made for the screen. Give the big screen a shot Netflix!
Check out the new trailer below and after doing so, head down to the comments and leave your thoughts below. Is it your type of movie? Was this trailer better than the last? Ayer’s Bright will be released on Netflix on December 22nd and also stars Edgar Ramirez, Noomi Rapace and Ike Barinholtz.
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.
