Bright: First Look Images of Joel Edgerton and Will Smith

6 March 2017 9:57 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

As previously reported a world which consists of Orcs and humans working side by side together in the Lapd will finally become a reality come December 2017… All thanks to Suicide Squad’s David Ayer who takes the driving seat behind the Netflix original film, Bright. To take us deep into this dark alternate world three first look images have come to light.

Our first image portrays a gun totting Will Smith as human Lapd Cop, Ward. Mean and moody and ready to take down some otherworldly criminal types.

The second image shows Joel Edgerton as you’ve never seen him before as Jakoby, the first ever Orc Cop to grace the American police force. With his large bulking frame, blue(ish) skin tone and bald head, a menacing demeanour engulfs his very being. We would hate to get on the wrong side of him. »

Bright first-look images show off David Ayer’s sci-fi actioner with Will Smith

6 March 2017 9:52 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Netflix have released some first look images at Bright, the new big-budget action film starring Will Smith and Joel Edgerton that arrives on the streamer later this year.

Set in an alternate present-day where humans, orcs, elves and fairies have been coexisting since the beginning of time, this action-thriller directed by David Ayer (Suicide Squad, End of Watch, writer of Training Day) follows two cops from very different backgrounds.  Ward, a human (Will Smith), and Jakoby, an orc (Joel Edgerton), embark on a routine night patrol that will alter the future of their world as they know it.  Battling both their own personal differences as well as an onslaught of enemies, they must work together to protect a young female elf and a thought-to-be-forgotten relic, which in the wrong hands could destroy everything.

The Netflix original film stars Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Noomi Rapace, Lucy Fry, Edgar Ramirez, Ike Barinholtz, »

Looking at the trailer, Ayer, who reunites with his Suicide Squad star Will Smith, looks set to bring elements from the worlds of End of Watch and Suicide Squad to his latest project which see’s Smith as a human cop working alongside an Orc cop who is played by the exceptionally diverse Joel Edgerton (Loving, Black Mass, The Gift). Joining Smith and Edgerton on the cast are Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and Lucy Fry who plays an Elf with a magical wand and needs the protection of these two hulking cops. »

First Teaser Trailer for David Ayer's Orcs Movie 'Bright' with Will Smith

26 February 2017 11:44 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"I'm assuming this doesn't end well." Netflix premiered a trailer for their upcoming new sci-fi fantasy movie from director David Ayer, who last made Suicide Squad. The project is titled Bright and comes from a screenplay written by Max Landis, of Chronicle and American Ultra. This is the movie you may have heard about where there are orc creatures living among the humans. Will Smith plays a cop in Los Angeles who ends up in the middle of a turf war. The cast includes Joel Edgerton, Noomi Rapace, Edgar Ramírez, Ike Barinholtz, Brad William Henke, Lucy Fry and Dawn Olivieri. This is just a tease, so they don't reveal too much yet, but I am definitely curious about this. I want to see more footage. Take a look below. Here's the first official teaser trailer for David Ayer's Bright, direct from YouTube: In an alternate present-day where magical creatures live among us, »

First Trailer For Will Smith’s Bright Teases A Spooky Journey

26 February 2017 7:58 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When it comes to original films, Netflix has really been stepping up their game lately, recently making a huge move to acquire Martin Scorsese’s next effort, The Irishman. That’s still quite aways away from debuting, however, but there’s still a lot to look forward to in the near future, like David Ayer’s Bright (which cost the company a cool $90 million).

So far, the project has been shrouded in a heavy amount of secrecy, but earlier tonight, the streaming service unveiled the first trailer for the film and finally gave us a taste of what to expect. It’s not terribly long, clocking in at about 30 seconds in length, but it teases a weird, spooky and dark journey for Will Smith, who reunites with his Suicide Squad director here for what looks like something pretty unique.

Here's Why the Uncle From Split Looks So Damn Familiar

18 January 2017 2:10 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Coming out of an insane movie like Split, there's a lot to puzzle through. M. Night Shyamalan's latest film is riddled with mystery, between the arrival of "The Beast," the 24th personality of Kevin (James McAvoy), and even the actual location of his surreptitious hideaway. Here's a conundrum we didn't quite expect, though: who the hell plays Casey's uncle? He doesn't appear in any of the trailers, but he plays a significant part in the film itself. The actor's name is Brad William Henke, and it turns out you've had plenty of opportunities to see him in the past, including one very big TV role just this past year.

Movie Review – Split (2016)

18 January 2017 8:25 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Split, 2016.

Directed by M. Night Shyamalan.

Starring James McAvoy, Anya Taylor-Joy, Haley Lu Richardson, Kim Director, Jessica Sula, Brad William Henke, Sebastian Arcelus, and Betty Buckley.

Synopsis:

Three girls must escape their captor, a man with 24 different personalities some of whom are intent on keeping the girls captive and others who are trying to take back control and save them

It’s a given that moviegoers will come into Split (the latest offering from the twist-obsessed M. Night Shyamalan of Signs and Unbreakable fame) salivating for a big game-changing reveal, and while the movie does have some surprises, it’s also not necessarily what’s to be expected. James McAvoy plays a man with disassociative identity disorder, but the mental illness itself is not thrown under the bus to be used as schlocky villain nonsense. There are both good people and bad people that make up the 23 personalities residing in Kevin, »

Movie Review – Split (2016)

Split, 2016.

Synopsis:

Three girls must escape their captor, a man with 24 different personalities some of whom are intent on keeping the girls captive and others who are trying to take back control and save them.

Before I went to see Split I decided to have a quick Google search of M. Night Shyamalan just to remind myself of the seemingly downward turn his films have taken and to see what he’s been up to, having taken very little notice of his work since The Happening. Underneath all the reviews for Split and usual IMDb and Wikipedia entries were two articles that caught my eye, one from FiveThirtyEight in 2015 titled The Death Spiral of M. Night Shyamalan’s Career and a piece from Vulture in »
