Teaser For Netflix Original Film ‘Bright’ Starring Will Smith | Film Trailer
The general consensus on Netflix’s original content is pretty much this: TV? Superb. Movies? Err, not so much. Whether we’re getting bombarded with new lowest-common-denominator Adam Sandler and Kevin James movies, or being disappointed by potentially good but ultimately shrug-inducing content like Girlfriend’s Day or Special Correspondents, so far the streaming giant hasn’t quite mastered the movie market.
What do you do when you need to rectify that? Turn to Will Smith. Perhaps he’s not as consistent as he once was but Smith remains one of the most bankable stars in Hollywood, and Netflix will be hoping he can bring them a slew of new subscribers, assuming they haven’t invaded every household worldwide yet.
The teaser for Smith’s new movie, Bright, has been released, which you can check out below, and is definitely a departure from Sandler-led comedies. The film is described thusly:
“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 (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”.
Intriguing. The film is directed by David Ayer (End Of Watch, Suicide Squad) and also stars Noomi Rapace and Margaret Cho. Finding out whether this is the hit film Netflix have been hoping for will have to wait until December, when the film hits all Netflix territories.
