Bright Feature Trailer (2017)
Third trailer for Bright, starring Will Smith and Joel Edgerton, which will premiere to the premium network Netflix.
On December 22nd, Will Smith and Joel Edgerton bring their action A-game to the globe in the eagerly-anticipated Netflix Original Film Bright. A bold new action-thriller from director David Ayer, Bright follows the story of two LAPD police officers played by Smith (Officer Ward) and Edgerton (Officer Jakoby) who form a most unlikely duo working to keep the mean streets of Los Angeles safe from a sinister underworld filled with gang violence and dark forces at work.
Bright is the most expensive Netflix release to date, clocking in at approximately $90 million. If that's impressive, the feature kicks off one of the largest collection of projects to date for the network. In 2018 alone, Netflix is expected to release close to 100 self-produced content properties, whether they are films or series.
Though he stumbled with Suicide Squad, the film was created for director David Ayer -- literally. Written by Max Landis, the scribe passed on an offer that was $1 million more, all to ensure David Ayer was behind the camera. Landis only had Ayer in mind when writing the script. Considering that Bright mixes fantasy with an End of Watch-type vibe, the attraction makes sense.
I so badly want Bright to be great. I'm not putting any money on it, but the film seems like the perfect mix of buddy cop drama, R-rated action and gore, and fantasy. A perfect genre blend that Hollywood could definitely use at the moment. And speaking of, you might notice that this is the first trailer that actually showcases R-rated dialogue. Some of the sequences from the past trailers suggested adult content, while this confirms it. Maybe we should have called this a red band trailer? Maybe. But, then again, this is a Netflix release, so not sure all the same rules apply.
Even with all the visuals and fantastical stylings, it looks like the critical success of Bright will rely entirely on the acting chops of Will Smith and Joel Edgarton. The two need to pull off the whole opposites attract formula that the film is attempting. If they achieve that, this could be great indeed.
But I'm still not willing to bet on it. I thought Suicide Squad was going to be the raddest comic book film to date, and I was sorely mistaken on that.
