Hopefully you’ve heard a little about this film already as it’s been addressed a few times in our topical posts that showcase trailers for this kind of thing but if its news to you for some reason, its a Netflix Original film called “Bright” and it stars Will Smith. It’s available for streaming on the service as you read this and below you will find its official poster along with some premise and the casting. As usual I’ve closed out the topic with some editorial. Take a look.
The Premise: In an alternate present where humans and fantasy creatures—Orcs, Fairies, Elves, Centaurs, etc.—have co-existed since the beginning of time, human LAPD officer Daryl Ward (Will Smith) and Orc Deputy Nick Jakoby (Joel Edgerton) embark on a routine patrol night, only to discover an ancient—but powerful—artifact: a magic wand, that was thought to be destroyed, and encounter a darkness that will ultimately alter the future and their world as they know it.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I was a fan of the show “Grimm” when it started but lost track so early that I didn’t end up keeping up to speed and as a diehard for quality and quirky action and Science Fiction/Fantasy films think this might be a sleeper hit. I think that I actually said how it reminded me of “Bad Boys” meets “Hellboy” in one of my trailer post narratives. That said I will definitely be perusing the Netflix Service when I sit down to relax after the upcoming holidays. There is no rush for me since I have so many other things to attend to before the year turns over. Have you seen any of the trailers for this? I posted all three of them so do please take a look and if it strikes your fancy let us know down there below.
