New 'Bright' Trailer Reveals the Plot of Netflix's Orc Cop Drama

Is Bright a true mash-up of Bad Boys and Lord of the Rings? With its newest trailer, the answer is still unswervingly, yes. And that’s what makes this unlikely fantasy film so exciting. We’ve never seen anything quite like it before.

On Wednesday, Netflix revealed the latest trailer for Bright, and the film looks even more badass and genre-bending than ever before. When Will Smith and his Orc partner (Joel Edgerton) encounter a new kind of magic in their urban fantasy world, the plot looks to be a combination of a police procedural and something straight out of The Magicians. And the best part is, unlike some fantasy narratives, Bright doesn’t seem hung-up on how cool or weird it is to have a cop and Orc cruising around. It just acts like this is normal. And that’s how you do urban fantasy right.


Bright will be out in a limited theatrical release and streaming on Netflix on December 22, 2017.
