Look, Bright was already going to be a big deal for Netflix, before they started introducing us to a world of humans, orcs and elves. This is a Will Smith-starring big budget sci-fi film, co-starring Joel Edgerton and directed by David Ayer.
And it’s coming straight to your television sets with exclusive Netflix releasing this December. That alone was going to change the game, but having such a bizarre plot is only going to further the matter.
And I’m totally on board with it. Bright looks like a gritty cop drama (of course, Mr. Ayer), yet it isn’t afraid to dabble into magic and fantasy. It’s also got some authentic humor, which is another step in the right direction.
I’m very curious to see how audiences react to this film and if Netflix will consider taking more large risks on future projects because of the success/failure of this film.
