At SDCC 2017, Netflix has showed a crowd a new trailer for their urban fantasy film titled Bright. The film stars Will Smith as a cop, and new footage shows off the fantasy elements of an alternate Earth. The McGuffin is a magic wand that's like "a new killer weapon that grants wishes." Lucy Fry plays the young elf who possesses the want, and the trailer gives us more footage of her. It looks like she will be a vulnerable damsel in distress. Apparently, the FBI has a magic division. It's amusing to see how magic and other elements of fantasy blend with current day reality in this film.
Watch the trailer below:
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 (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.
Directed by David Ayer and written by Max Landis, Bright also stars Noomi Rapace, Edgar Ramírez, Ike Barinholtz and Brad William Henke. It's set to premiere on Netflix on December 22, 2017.
