Here’s the trailer for Bright, Netflix’s attempt to corner the blockbuster market in your living room. The film stars Will Smith, Joel Edgerton (he’s the Orc), Noomi Rapace, Ike Barinholtz, and Margaret Cho, among others. It comes from David Ayer, who has made some really good movies (End of Watch) and some not so good movie, like Suicide Squad. And oh yeah: Max Landis got paid $3 million to write it. Based on the the trailer? The writing is not so good.
But, you can watch it on your phone on opening day! That’s December 22nd, by the way. And chances are, you will, whether it’s good or not, because Netflix has got us by our respective genitalia. Plus, it might be good. Or it might be bad in a way that we can all make fun of on Twitter while we’re watching it!
Anyway, here’s the trailer. As you can see, a lot of the $90 million budget clearly went to craft services.
I repeat: "THIS IS LIKE A NUKE-U-LAR BOMB THAT GRANTS WISHES" is an actual line of dialogue in Bright's trailer, oh God oh God oh God.— Rebecca Pahle (@RebeccaPahle) July 20, 2017
