Watch Will Smith and Shotgunning Orcs in Bright

Yep, that’s right. Ever wanted to see an orc in a hoodie shooting at people? Bright might be the movie for you.

Set in a modern world where elves, orcs, fairies, and other fantasy staples exist alongside humans, Will Smith plays a cop who, along with his orc partner, must find a magical weapon which threatens the world. The fantastical elements remain mostly kept under wraps throughout the trailer; brief shots of seemingly magic-wielding elves and a pair of fantastical environments are all that separates the trailer from your typical cop drama. Oh, and Will Smith wielding a massive sword.

What the heck, I’m in. I can’t imagine not having fun with this movie. Hate it or love it I’ll find something worth my time. Here’s the thing about Will Smith. It takes a really, really bad movie for him not to salvage something from it. Add the talents of David Ayer (Training Day, End of Watch, Fury) and I could see this turning out very well. Here’s hoping Bright takes the concept of different races existing together and does something interesting with it.

Bright releases this December on Netflix. Starring alongside Smith are Joel Edgerton, Noomi Rapace, Lucy Fry, Edgar Ramirez, and Happy Anderson.
