Today Netflix released a featurette for their upcoming new film Bright. The featurette focuses primarily on Will Smith and the intense action sequences that are peppered throughout the course of the fantasy film.
We get to see how involved Will Smith was with the process of choreographing the action sequences we’ll see throughout the course of the film. We also learn about David Ayer’s insistence to have all practical sets for the action sequences, which is something that isn’t heard of today due to the heavy reliance on CGI.
The official synopsis for the film is below:
Set in an alternate present-day where humans, orcs, elves, and fairies have been coexisting since the beginning of time, this action-thriller directed by David Ayer follows two cops from very different backgrounds. Ward, a human (Will Smith), and Jakoby, an orc (Joel Edgerton), embark on a routine night patrol that will alter the future of their world as they know it. Battling both their own personal differences as well as an onslaught of enemies, they must work together to protect a young female elf and a thought-to-be-forgotten relic, which in the wrong hands could destroy everything.
Fresh off his work on Suicide Squad, David Ayer is directing Bright. The Netflix original film stars Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Noomi Rapace, Lucy Fry, Edgar Ramirez, Ike Barinholtz, Enrique Murciano, Jay Hernandez, Andrea Navedo, Veronica Ngo, Alex Meraz, Margaret Cho, Brad William Henke, Dawn Olivieri, and Kenneth Choi.
