Netflix makes Hall H debut with big budget Will Smith pic

Netflix makes Hall H debut with big budget Will Smith pic

This winter, though, they're releasing what could be their biggest, most ambitious movie yet, and star Will Smith just unveiled the first trailer at San Diego Comic-Con.

"They didn't teach us this at the Academy", admits Joel Edgerton to Will Smith, who play cops in a odd Los Angeles-based alternate universe in the first trailer for Netflix's police thriller "Bright". They're playing partners, but they're a little different from the partners from Ayer's previous movies: one of these is an orc.

Hot off its Comic-Con debut, the trailer for the dark fantasy action-thriller is set in an alternate present-day, following two very different cops. It's a world where Orcs are real - and don't always get along with humans.

Bright actually was a reunion of sorts for Will Smith, as he was brought back to work with Suicide Squad filmmaker David Ayer.

Egerton, who wears prosthetics to transform into an Orc for the film, noted that he didn't get much attention sititng next to Smith while filming. Ayer was not afraid of showing his love for making this movie for Netflix. "I was really able to tell a story". "It felt great to be a black LAPD officer who finds someone else to be racist against", Smith said, laughing.

One way he tried to articulate that: "When I was on "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air"... it was great, people would see me on the street and shout "Yo, Will!' But the Monday after 'Independence Day" came out, that was the first time anyone called me Mr. Smith".

Bright - which has a budget of $90 million - will premiere December 22, 2017, exclusively on Netflix.

Screenwriter Max Landis (Chronicle, Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency) wrote the script for Bright, which was directed by David Ayers.
