The latest Bright trailer.

It raises… questions.

Like, When did the fantasy races start showing up, anyway?  It couldn’t have been centuries ago, or even multiple decades; the fashions are all still clearly human-derived and none of the Orcs apparently got the Shrek reference (movie made in 2001).  Assuming that you could even make Shrek in that universe if there were fantasy races around; somebody would have pitched a fit over the stereotyping*. Gonna be interesting when this comes out on December 22nd.

*Then again, Dreamworks managed to gleefully libel Disney in that movie and get away with it, so maybe they could have made Shrek and not cared about what the Orcs thought about the ‘Ogres.’

The First ‘Bright’ Trailer (Netflix Urban Fantasy).

I first mentioned it here.  Short version: Will Smith in a buddy cop movie.  With an Orc.  Looks promising: it comes out in December.

This ‘Bright’ modern fantasy Netflix cop movie looks promising.

Largely because of this:

Likened to [David] Ayer’s own End of Watch, Bright takes place in a world that blends contemporary reality with a fantasy realm. The story follows an Orc cop ([Joel] Edgerton) who is partnered with a human cop ([Will] Smith). Their ordinary beat takes a decidedly unordinary turn when they wind up coming into the possession of a massively powerful (and highly illegal) weapon: a magic wand.

…OK, yeah. Orc/Human buddy cop flick set in modern LA?  Gonna be on Netflix?  This sounds intriguing. I don’t want to jump up and down in glee, or anything – you get burned a lot when it comes to fantasy-themed films – but if they can pull it off it should be a hoot. I look forward to watching it when it’s done.
