Fresh off their first Oscars win, Netflix have taken to their Youtube channel to announce the upcoming release of an original feature length film staring Will Smith.
Entitled Bright (2017), the film looks to drop Smith in a re-imagined, real-world fantasy thriller. The first official plot details gave us a small peak at what to expect:
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 (Will 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.
Bright (2017) is set to be available to Netflix viewers by December 2017.
With Netflix targeting an ambitious 50% share of original content on their streaming platform, we should probably be expecting more great titles with Hollywood A-listers like Smith coming our way in the very near future.
