Netflix made a huge San Diego Comic-Con appearance by debuting the trailer for Bright, the latest film from director David Ayer (Suicide Squad and End of Watch) starring Will Smith, Joel Edgerton (The Gift), and Noomi Rapace (Alien: Covenant, Prometheus).
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 End of Watch, Sabotage and Fury. His action choreography is some of the best I’ve ever seen, and this even includes the disappointing Suicide Squad. The trailer looks like a new kind of superhero movie, integrating the best parts of End of Watch and Suicide Squad with strong social commentary and a bit of that buddy comedy wit from something like Rush Hour.Look for this on December 22, 2017.
“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.
