Check Out This Featurette For Netflix’s BRIGHT Starring Will Smith
Splashigans, I can admit that when I see Will Smith’s name attached to a project, lately I’m pessimistic. Not to say he’s a bad actor, but what has he done for me lately? Wow, who am I? King Tyler? Ooo, I like the sound of that. But, here’s where my bite my tongue, because Netflix’s Bright actually looks very interesting to me. It seems like a fantasy re-telling of 16 Blocks. Remember when Bruce Willis had to take Mos Def (the snitch) through 16 blocks to get him to the courthouse? Then, it seemed like all of New York City was trying to stop and kill them? Well, swap Mos Def for a magic wand, then put an Orc (played by Joel Edgerton) and Will Smith in Bruce Willis’ shoes. Oh, and make it L.A. instead of NYC. And, with that, let’s have a look at this new featurette:
The streets of Los Angeles will never be the same. This December, Will Smith and Joel Edgerton bring the heat (and some hardcore deadly magic) to fans across the world in the Netflix film, Bright. Directed by David Ayer, known for the box-office hits such as Suicide Squad and Training Day, this action-thriller follows the story of two LAPD police officers played by Smith (Officer Ward) and Edgerton (Officer Jakoby). In Bright, the unlikely duo are working around the clock to keep the mean streets of Los Angeles safe from a sinister underworld filled with gang violence and dark forces at work.
In this latest sneak peek, Will Smith and Joel Edgerton reveal the unique partnership between their characters Officer Ward and Officer Jakoby. Director David Ayer showcases how these two mismatched partners anchor the story, explaining that “the most important thing about this film is the relationship between Will and Joel.” Take a closer look at the action-packed movie that Will Smith describes as “wildly unique” and watch the brand new trailer when it debuts on October 25th!
Bright will be available in select theaters and on Netflix starting December 22nd, 2017. Visit Bright on Netflix.
