David Ayer (Suicide Squad) is no stranger to bringing larger-than-life characters to the big screen whilst working from the director’s chair, and that’s exactly what he seems to be doing in Netflix original movie Bright, which brings the world of fairytales together with the crime thriller genre. This week, a new video focusing on the action from Bright has been revealed, which you can now check out below:
“It’s BIG stars and BIG actions”, says Ayer, and judging from the clip above, we doubt he’s telling fibs!
Will Smith and Joel Edgerton lead the movie as Officer Ward and Officer Jakoby respectively, with Noomi Rapace slotting in the villainous elf role of Leila.
Set in an alternate version of the modern day, the action-thriller follows two police officers from hugely different backgrounds; one of which just happen to be an orc. Embarking on their routine patrol, they come across an event that will alter their future and that of the world if they’re unable to stop the evil that’s brewing.
Battling against their own differences as well as their enemies, they must learn to work alongside one another if they’re to stop a long-forgotten relic from falling into the wrong hands and destroying everything they’ve ever known.
Lucy Fry, Edgar Ramirez, Ike Barinholtz, Enrique Murciano, Jay Hernandez, Andrea Navedo, Veronica Ngo, Alex Meraz, Margaret Cho, Brad William Henke, Dawn Oliveri and Kenneth Choi all also star, with Max Landis having written the film’s screenplay. David Ayer produces alongside Eric Newman and Bryan Unkeless.
Already seen by the critics, Bright has unfortunately failed to light a fire in the bellies of many reviewers, sitting with a poor score of 29% on reviews aggregate website Rotten Tomatoes. Fortunately, Ayer hasn’t let this get to him. No stranger to bad reviews (just check out the page for Suicide Squad), he took to his Twitter account to respond to one particular claim that Bright was the “single worst movie of 2017”.
A perfect response, wouldn't you say? We can’t wait to see the movie for ourselves…
Bright is available on Netflix now.
