Will Smith Hates Orc Music in Bright Sneak Peek

Will Smith Hates Orc Music in Bright Sneak Peek
With the December 22 premiere getting closer and closer, Netflix has released two brief clips from their highly-anticipated Bright, showcasing the dynamic of two very different L.A.P.D. officers. The first clip features the orc Jakoby, played by Joel Edgerton, who gets quite excited when an "orcish" song comes on the radio, although his mood sours when Will Smith's Ward changes the channel, stating they will be listening to no orcish music. While the song definitely seems to be of the heavy metal variety, Jakoby protests, stating that it's one of the greatest love songs ever written, to which Ward replies, "That's a love song in prison."

The second clip is much more mysterious in nature, featuring Lapd body cam footage, which is appropriately dated December 22, 2017, the same day the movie debuts on Netflix. The body cam footage shows Ward and Jakoby entering an apartment to subdue Lucy Fry's Tikka,

Best Movies and TV to Stream in December: Sci-Fi Cops, Dave Chappelle and More
When historians look back at the cosmic coincidences that made up the annus miserablis that was 2017, they will likely skip over the fact Netflix released a movie named Bright and a German horror series titled Dark within mere days of one another. We, however, are happy to celebrate such a glorious irony right here and now. The streaming service is also dropping a pair of stand-up specials from heavyweight talents (and supposedly the new season of Black Mirror, which is scheduled for "late 2017" ... so, um, soon?). Meanwhile Amazon is keeping

Mister Rogers Documentary Gets Summer 2018 Release Date

Focus Features has acquired the worldwide rights to Won't You Be My Neighbor, the new documentary about the life and work of Mister Fred Rogers. From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville (20 Feet from Stardom), the documentary is a Focus Features presentation of a Tremolo Production, in association with Impact Partners and Independent Lens/PBS. It is set to be released on June 8, 2018. Focus chairman Peter Kujawski made the announcement today, with the following statement.

"Morgan once again avoids making a traditional biodoc and instead takes us behind the curtain to see how Fred Rogers navigated the cultural and social issues of the second half of the twentieth century with his own brand of forward-thinking, compassionate wisdom far beyond his time. Mister Rogers makes us all want to be better people, and we couldn't be more proud to be a part of telling his story today."

Netflix Is Recruiting a Will Smith Army to Promote Bright

Netflix Is Recruiting a Will Smith Army to Promote Bright
Is your name Will Smith? If so, Netflix, and the star of such movies as Independence Day and Suicide Squad, Will Smith, needs your help to promote their upcoming movie, Bright. That's right, apparently, the actor Will Smith is far too busy to handle the busy press schedule for Bright and he is in need of some other people with his same name to help fill in for him. At this point, we have more questions than answers, but this is a very real thing that is really happening.

Netflix recently released a video via their official Twitter account featuring Will Smith, who stars in Bright alongside Joel Edgerton. The video features Smith discussing the busy schedule Netflix has him on to promote the movie and, since he's a busy guy, he apparently can't do it all himself. So, he's requesting that anyone named Will Smith reach out to Netflix so they can help.

Is Your Name Will Smith? Because Will Smith Needs Your Help on a Secret Project
If you think about it, the name Will Smith is pretty common. In fact, according to a semilegitimate website, there are roughly 258 people named Will Smith in the United States alone. That's not counting people named Guillermo Smith or Wilhelm Smith or what have you. And right now is their time to shine. The prominent actor by that same name - one more time just for fun: Will Smith - is currently promoting his upcoming Netflix movie Bright, also starring Joel Edgerton. That means he'll soon embark on a global press tour that will consist of on-camera interviews, late-night appearances, and the like. Instead of doing all of that, however, he's asking all the other Will Smiths of the world to help him out. On Netflix's Twitter, Will recently shared a video asking all of the Will Smiths of the world to come forward. "It's too much stuff. It's interviews; it's long days.

Home Entertainment: ‘It Comes At Night’ DVD Review

Studio A24 delivers yet another spellbinding minimalistic thriller with Trey Edward ShultsIt Comes at Night, which proves that atmosphere and tension can be more terrifying than any immediate danger that may jump its way onto our screens. What it lacks as a result of its minimalism it wholly makes up for through its enthralling visual composition and a masterfully paced score as all facets of filmmaking work in unison to produce a horror film that may not immediately scare you but will surely linger in your mind.

It Comes at Night takes place in the wake of an unspecified apocalypse. An infection has ravaged the Earth but the protagonists we follow know nothing of the details behind the plague, nor the state of the world beyond the shelter of their cabin in the woods. Paul (Joel Edgerton), his wife Sarah (Carmen Ejogo) and their son Travis (Kelvin Harrison Jr.
