On December 22nd Netflix will air an original fantasy crime movie starring Will Smith and Joel Edgerton. Netflix subscribers will view the premiere of Bright; directed by David Ayer (Suicide Squad) and written by Max Landis (American Ultra).
This crime fantasy is guaranteed to take you into another dimension as it catapults you into an, “alternate present day where humans, orcs, elves and fairies have been coexisting since the beginning of time. Two police officers, one a human, the other an orc, 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.” (Bright Synopsis)
In the midst of the crime, fantasy and action, Bright takes time to address modern day social concepts, as Smith’s character, Daryl Ward declares,
“All of the races are different. Just cause their different doesn’t mean anybody’s better or worse than anybody.”
During an interview with the Associated Press Smith stated,
“It was spectacular for me as an African American, playing a police officer that was racist against the first orc on the force. It’s like the flip of those social concepts… as a black dude you just don’t get a lot of movies where you’re the racist.”
Bright is filled with action, fantasy, drama and suspense. A must watch Netflix original!
