Netflix drops teaser for Will Smith fantasy film ‘Bright’

Imagine our world, only there are elves and orcs co-existing with us normal humans.

That’s pretty much all we know about Bright, the new film from Netflix, written and directed by David Ayer, and starring Will Smith (which explains why our first thought upon watching the trailer was that it looked like it could have been a trailer for Suicide Squad).

Last night, during the tumultuous Academy Awards, Netflix gave the public its first look at the film:

So, Bad Boys meets Lord of the Rings?Lord of the Rings Ok.

Netflix paid a LOT of money for this film ($90 million), and are clearly banking of Will Smith’s star power to draw in an audience. There’s also word they’re hoping to make it a franchise. No pressure, Will.

Bright hits Netflix in December.
