Netflix and David Ayer’s Bright trailer revealed at SDCC 2017
The trailer for the upcoming Netflix original film Bright was revealed during its panel today at San Diego Comic-Con. The film is set “In an alternate present-day where magical creatures live among us, two L.A. cops become embroiled in a prophesied turf battle.”
Directed by David Ayer (Suicide Squad), the film stars Will Smith (Men in Black, I Am Legend), Joel Edgerton (It Comes at Night, Midnight Special), and Noomi Rapace (Prometheus, The Drop). Additional cast includes Lucy Fry, Edgar Ramirez, Ike Barinholtz, Enrique Murciano, Jay Hernandez, Andrea Navedo, Veronica Ngo, Alex Meraz, Margaret Cho, Brad William Henke, Dawn Olivieri, and Kenneth Choi. The film is directed by David Ayer and written by Max Landis. Ayer, Eric Newman, and Bryan Unkeless serve as producers.
The following is the official plot synopsis:
Set in an alternate present-day where humans, orcs, elves and fairies have been coexisting since the beginning of time, this action-thriller directed by David Ayer (Suicide Squad, End of Watch, writer of Training Day) follows two cops from very different backgrounds. Ward, a human (Will Smith), and Jakoby, an orc (Joel Edgerton), 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.

Earlier this year, EW revealed some first look images from the film (above). Will Smith had the following to say about the dynamic between his Edgerton’s characters in the accompanying article:
“He’s like the Jackie Robinson of orcs,” Smith says about Edgerton’s character. “He has to make it go right, or other orcs won’t have a shot. So he’s taking on the social responsibility of being a good cop, with the weight of his people on his shoulders.”
Bright is coming exclusively to Netflix December 22th.
