A Cop and His Orc Partner Walk Into a Crime Scene: First Trailer For Bright

Netflix has a brand new fantasy film coming from David Ayer, director of Suicide Squad. It’s time to take a peek at Bright.

Bright takes place in the world where humans, elves, orcs, and fairies have always coexisted. When Ward (Will Smith) and his orc partner (Joel Edgerton) come across an elf (Lucy Fry) with a magic wand, they get caught up in much more than they bargained for.

The premise is intriguing, but can so much world-building be contained in a single film? Maybe it would have been better off as a television show? Either way, fantasy buddy cops is certainly a genre that could do with some exploration.

Bright will premiere on Netflix on December 22nd.
