First-look images from David Ayer’s Bright featuring Will Smith and Joel Edgerton

6 March 2017 11:25 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week we brought you a teaser trailer for David Ayer’s upcoming fantasy action thriller Bright [watch it here], and now Netflix has released three first-look images from the film featuring Will Smith and Joel Edgerton; check them out below…

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.

Bright is set to arrive on Netflix »

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.

Related: Bright Teaser Trailer

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. »
