Netflix: Will Smith Wields a Sword, Battles Orcs and Fairies in David Ayers’ ‘Bright’



BRIGHT Will Smith Netflix


From the director of Suicide Squad and End of Watch, David Ayer, comes a new film starring Will Smith, Joel Edgerton (The Gift), and Noomi Rapace (Alien: Covenant, Prometheus).

While Netflix isn’t releasing Bright until December, they’ve already provided us with a teaser than looks bonkers. Ayer may have dropped the ball with Suicide Squad, but Bright looks to right that wrong. Ayer is an extremely talented filmmaker, who also directed Sabotage and Fury. His action choreography is some of the best I’ve ever seen, and this even includes the disappointing Suicide Squad.

Set in an alternate present-day where humans, orcs, elves and fairies have been coexisting since the beginning of time, 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 young female elf and a thought-to-be-forgotten relic, which in the wrong hands could destroy everything.

The Netflix original film stars Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Noomi Rapace, Lucy Fry, Edgar Ramirez, Ike Barinholtz, Enrique Murciano, Jay Hernandez, Andrea Navedo, Veronica Ngo, Alex Meraz, Margaret Cho, Brad William Henke, Dawn Olivieri, and Kenneth Choi. The film is directed by David Ayer and written by Max Landis (Chronicle). David Ayer, Eric Newman, and Bryan Unkeless serve as producers.
