Hey guys, Jana here,
Netflix has jumped from small-screen and so-so feature film debuts to big-budget film exclusivity. I’m not saying Netflix wasn’t on their A-game before, but being the sole place to find the new Adam Sandler movie is a little different than being the only outlet to carry the new Will Smith (‘Collateral Beauty‘) action flick, and that’s exactly who they are now with the debut of ‘Bright‘.
Comic-Con gives us the most amazing things and the trailer for ‘Bright‘ is among them. Director David Ayer (‘Suicide Squad‘) took a Max Landis (‘American Ultra‘) script and topped the sundae of a film off Smith, Joel Edgerton (‘Warrior‘) and Noomi Rapace (‘Prometheus‘).
The movie has it all, Orcs, Fairies, Elves…and Smith. Smith plays a cop of the human variety, partnered with an Orc (Edgerton). Their personal differences have to be dealt with in order to take on their enemies and form a working relationship so they can protect a dangerous weapon and make sure it stays out of the wrong hands.
The flick comes in a little over the $90 million mark making this the first tentpole movie for Netflix and will truly take the wind, a bit at least, out of their rivals.
