Bright brings fantasy to the streets and they truly emphasize that in this trailer. The action-packed scenes play out rather quickly, giving us a little bit more in terms of the plot. The David Ayer directed film coming to Netflix is sure to interest people with it’s themes and especially the imagery.

While the trailer doesn’t give us too much in terms of plot, we do learn a little more. For one thing, the wand is described as a “nuclear weapon” and does no good for anyone who encounters it. We also see that while Deputy Jakoby (Joel Edgerton) is the first Orc police officer, the FBI has an Elf working in their department. The Elf seems to sneak around, so we’ll have to keep our eye out for him as he is definitely up to something. The trailer just really emphasizes the relationship between Jakoby and Officer Ward (Will Smith). While they’re off to a rough start and Ward is resistant, the events of the film will definitely change them.

For me, what’s most disappointing about the film with this trailer is Will Smith being Will Smith. He’s always a “tough yet funny badass”, always delivering punch lines in so many of his movies. I swear you can change the characters to different films and it would work perfectly. However, despite the Will Smithing, the world is great to look at. It truly looks like LA as it is today only with some Orcs, Elves and Fairies shoved in. Racial tension, police brutality and hyper violence all echo our world as it is today. So it’s interesting to see a spin on it. I also really like the look of the characters. And frankly, the premise is really interesting, so we’ll check it out when it comes to Netflix this winter.

What do you think of the trailer? Let us know! Be sure to come back to Geek Girl Authority for more Bright news.

In an alternate Earth where humans and fantasy creatures coexist, Human LAPD officer Daryl Ward (Will Smith) and Orc Deputy Nick Jakoby (Joel Edgerton), embark on a routine patrol night, only to discover an ancient, but powerful artifact, a magic wand, that was thought to be destroyed, and encounter a darkness that will ultimately alter the future and their world as they know it.

Bright comes to Netflix on December 22nd.
