Will Smith’s New Movie Bright Has LAPD, Orcs, and Elves?

Originally published for Duesr.com

Netflix just released a new trailer for Bright.   The synopsis on IMDB has the following summary:

“Set in a world where mystical creatures live side by side with humans. A human cop is forced to work with an Orc to find a weapon everyone is prepared to kill for.”

While I have high expectations for this movie. Reading the summary almost makes me think it’s a fantasy creature version of Alien Nation.   Don’t get me wrong, I love Alien Nation, the TV show is one of my favorites.   I’m curious on how this is going to differ from that formula though.  I’m looking for new and not more of the same in different skin.  A perfect example of the same movie different skin is Braveheart.   It spawned Braveheart 2 – Gladiator, and Braveheart 3 – The Patriot AKA The Return of Mel Gibson.

Regardless though I look forward to watching it.   I’m impressed that Netflix is upping its movie production game from stars like Adam Sandler to stars like Will Smith.  Regardless if it’s a reskin or not, I’m hyped to watch it and see how it plays out.    Will it become a cherished geek treasure, who knows?   Will it be enjoyable more 90-120 minutes, more than likely.
