‘Bright’ Trailer: Watch Will Smith Say “Fairy Lives Don’t Matter”
Bright, for all intents and purposes, is still insisting that it is a real movie that will be debuting on Netflix before the end of the year. I still don’t entirely believe that it’s true, but the trailers do look pretty convincing. Maybe it’s real!
Bright is essentially Training Day, if Training Day had been written by a time-traveling Holly Black who knew about 2017’s disparate Black Lives/Blue Lives Matter movements. Will Smith plays a human cop who gets partnered up with an orc, played by Joel Edgerton, and the two of them accidentally find themselves in the middle of a possible war involving a sword, a bunch of Elves, and a magic wand. Oh, and Will Smith beats up a fairy with a broom and says, “Fairy lives don’t matter today,” so there’s that.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Set in an alternate present-day where humans, orcs, elves, and fairies have been co-existing since the beginning of time. Bright is genre-bending action movie that follows two cops from very different backgrounds. Ward (Will Smith) and Jakoby (Joel Edgerton), embark on a routine patrol night and encounter a darkness that will ultimately alter the future and their world as they know it.
Bright debuts on Netflix on December 22. Prepare yourself accordingly.
