John Connor [Celluloid 10.26.17] fantasy crime



Some people are being shitty about Bright, but I think it looks like a really fun genre blender. The second trailer has dropped and while it's spoilery in terms of plot it makes me excited for December and reminds me of Alien Nation.

The film cost an estimated $90 million to produce and earned writer Max Landis a reported $4 million payday after a bidding war.


Synopsis:
Set in an alternate present-day where humans, orcs, elves, and fairies have been co-existing since the beginning of time. Bright is genre-bending action movie that follows two cops from very different backgrounds. Ward (Will Smith) and Jakoby (Joel Edgerton), embark on a routine patrol night and encounter a darkness that will ultimately alter the future and their world as they know it.


The cast of Bright is top notch. Along with Smith, Joel Edgerton, Noomi Rapace Edgar Ramírez and Lucy Fry star.

Bright will premiere on Netflix sometime in December 2017.

Aliens-among-us (Alien Nation, District 9) as a metaphor for race relations is easier to swallow than Middle-Earth-among-us. This looks laughable.

we now have the technology to do a great job of making a film version of almost any J.G. Ballard or Clifford Simak novel, but no....what we get is this. It's really pathetic. Trailer makes it look like the pitch for this film came from an eight year old.

Sounds like the audience has spoken. Hated it. The trailers aren't doing this movie any justice at all. If it wasn't for your synopsis, I would have had no clue these were supposed to be fairy folk and not aliens.

Now knowing that Max Landis wrote it, means it won't be a cookie cutter knock off of Alien Nation. He is a solid writer that knows how to work around standard tropes and give them some fresh twist.

This will still fail at the box office without great word of mouth behind it. Going up against the Shape of Water and Star Wars.
