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.
Bright is available only on Netflix. Bright is directed by David Ayer (Training Day, End of Watch, Suicide Squad) stars Will Smith (Men in Black), Joel Edgerton (The Great Gatsby), Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Lucy Fry (11.22.63), Edgar Ramirez (Hands of Stone, Zero Dark Thirty), Margaret Cho (Drop Dead Diva), and Ike Barinholtz (Suicide Squad). The movie is written by Max Landis (Chronicle) and produced by Ayer, Eric Newman (Narcos) and Bryan Unkeless (The Hunger Games).

Bright | History of Magic | Netflix
the premise is really similar to harry potter... a dark lord (voldemort), an organisation which defies the dark lord (order of the phoenix), and three items that contain great powers (the deathly hallows) sounds oddly familiar lmao
Even if this was in the beginning of the movie would it have even helped? Even this doesn’t explain stuff like what Brights actually are, who the Dark Lord is, how Jirak united the nine races, not even what all the nine races are.
Needs to be a series. Not necessarily about Will Smith and Joel's characters (if they don't want to return), but a series based in that world, expanding upon its lore and history with an appealing narrative would be good. If Will and Joel want to do a series, it'd be good to explore their relationship growing as Will learns more about being a Bright and Joel's new status of being a blooded orc, regardless of staying in law enforcement or not, though if they do I feel it'd be important for them to become involved in a magical unit, kinda like the elf and that one dude.
Anyways, not a bad movie, introduced some great ideas, but really didn't expand on things it should have and really under used Noomi Rapace.
The dating in this video is incorrect. In the film, we are told that the Dark Lord was defeated 2,000 years ago, yet in this video, it shows that he was defeated 4,000 years ago. The video uses conventional B.C. / A.D. dating. The Dark Lord was defeated in 2109 B.C., meaning 2,109 years Before Christ. We can tell that the B.C. dating is conventional because it counts down to show the forward passage of time; that is, 2600 B.C. occurs before 2109 B.C., meaning that the lower number is the later year. B.C. dating counts down to 1 B.C., believed, in antiquity, to be the year before the birth of Christ. Then the video switches to A.D., giving dates such as 1852 and 1945, wherein the year counts upward as time progresses, i.e. 1845 occurs before 1945. This is confirmed by the parity between Bright's 1945 and our 1945: in both years the atom bomb was created, though in Bright's chronology a wand may have had something to do with it. So, it appears that the makers of the video were confused about conventional dating methods, or that any ancillary material they obtained was either incorrect or incomplete. Or, Max Landis believed that 2109 B.C. occurred 2,000 years ago, and others followed his dictates.
I liked the movie but not this. If you assume that the movie takes place in Shadowrun, less than a generation after the return of magic and the reappearance of the old races, the movie makes complete sense. Admittedly, working on that assumption means that those unfamiliar with Shadowrun would find it confusing as presented. This add-on history exposition, however, creates enormous plot holes and logic errors (see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHy6iXcj004 ). I would like to see Netflix partner with the owners of Shadowrun to make this an ongoing series, not necessarily having to revolve around the same protagonists. Netflix, please keep this up, but please also make it easier to understand when approaching it blind. (A series would provide ample space to explore Shadowrun's unique world, and LA would be a great new angle from which to view it.)
Please give us depth of Characters and a rich universe to put them in and understand. Don’t break ur own universes rules and show us these things don’t “tell us”.
The fact that you needed to make this short clip in order for us to understand the universe and motivations you just showed us for over an hour is proof you need to work on this.
This film just needs better writers.. (or better direction. Cough* Cough*) One thing that is good with these movies. definitely the promotion... They been spot on so far....
I like how they didn't show the dark lord in a fukin prom teaser,...
Bright should have a totally different Earth's history, totally different surviving nations, totally different surviving religions and religious illogical moralisms, totally different cultures, totally different everything! = our history, nations, religions, culture, everything were given by thousands years of HUMAN history, human alone...
Now the ending makes more sense. Jirak was an unblooded orc who defeated the dark lord and became a hero, then jakoby an unblooded orc prevents the return of the dark lord and becomes a hero to both humans and orcs.
Ps so some time during the 18th century a group of people decided “too many sorcerers”
I absolutely loved the film. There is a large demographic chasm between critics and audiences. I am with that almost 90% of the audiences who loved the film. I'm with you and not the critics. You can see this chasm especially with your competitor Disney, Fox and Hulu (since the merger). I'm continuing to support your streaming, I'm a fan and a sub. I don't like the idea of them monopolizing what I want to watch. I didn't like the direction in which they took the Star War continuity. I did not like the film. So, thus far critics and audiences are going head to head in the market for what they want to see on the big screen. So, when you went "Blockbuster straight to streaming" that move was bold asf! You're making history and I think you guys can corner the market with audiences. Disney is loosing that fight with audiences and steadily dropping. Seems you know what audiences are looking for. I'm one of your biggest fans of your sci-fi and fantasy films streaming genre and your Originals are freaking pinned to my favorites. You nail it every time, imo. I hope that Bright is the new Star Wars of our era! I can see this easily becoming a franchise: comic books, trilogy (franchise), novels, toys, a spin-ff into live action tv series, etc. You guys have the vision and my money is on you. Especially, with Disney buying Fox-Hulu. I'm in your corner. I hope to see more from Bright. Especially that sequel! An I will be looking at the latest news and upcoming info for it. I bet you guys could even get a deal with Dark Horse comics, especially since Disney closed the deal with Dark Horse to go with (buying) Marvel. I'm really excited to see what you guys are going to bring us next. You have no idea. THIS IS GOING TO BE BIG! You guys pulled in over 11 million viewers! Just in the first opening weekend! That's like $98 million dollars in (in theater ticket sales), that means something, especially in this bold move you guys have done. This is your moment Netflix, WOO!
If such devastating changes from our timeline due to all this magic hubbabaloo, why is there so many things that are in our world are in theirs? How are the Alamo, Shrek, Ford Motor company, the United States, Los Angeles, etc. a part of their world, and not changed by orcs, dwarves, elves, fairies, etc., being a thing.
Aside from, we were too cheap and lazy to account for different this society would be if things changed 2000 years ago.
Then that's rather problematic, as what they're saying is that Orcs really are destined to fight and really did sell out the human race 2000 years ago. Saying that about real life minorities brings up problems.
Again, Alien Nation did this better, smarter, and wasn't offensive or lazy in their portrayal.
I thought it was obvious. The film is satire of our reality replaced with fantasy creatures.
The Orcs are black people, humans are caucasian and the Elves are Jews. I'm sure the dwarves are Asian, owning businesses and banks. Satire.
I feel that this video clarifies some facts but confuses me with others:
So, an orc named Jirak led the forces against the Dark Lord but orcs are still hated in the film. No one ever says Jakoby is one of the good orcs.
Jirak is said to be the first Bright but in the present day of the film, elves are the majority of the Brights. What caused the shift to elf magical dominance?
Also, time is denoted with B.C, Before Christ, so Jesus, Christianity, Judaism, and Islam still exist in a world where there is magic.
@Ray Scott I can probably only comment on the orcs still being hated thing. From what I am understanding, most of the orcs joined forces with The Dark Lord. And then a small minority of orcs lead by Jirak rebelled against the Dark Lord. So from a prejudice perspective they might think good orcs might be something on the rare side. And my from my perspective it is possible that prejudices from old grudges have been past down from generation to generation. To support this concept I would point to the locker room scene were one of the officers said, "My ancestors killed them by the fucking thousands in Russia." Suggesting that this character is holding onto a grudge, for things that happened many years before he was actually born.
Dose that perspective make any sense?
This kind of lore feels lame and underwhelming. I've read similar story pitches in the GURPS books back in the '90s. "Magic Task Force"? "Dark Lord"?
I don't know, but I'm expecting something weak like Charmed or the Wizards of Waverly Hills (sic?).
There should be a sequel where the dark lord is resurrected and turns out Jakoby is a bright orc and defeats the dark lord just like Jirak. The story doesn't have to be that cliched and simple there can be more to the story like Ward could have done something since he's a bright
I appreciate what this video is trying to do, be it Canon or not, but the timeline isn't consistent with the movie. According to the movie, the battle against the dark lord took place 2000 years ago not 4000. I'm assuming the movie is set in the 2000s A.D? And was Jesus elf or human?
Sechskies Eun Ji Won and rookie singers Lee Soo Hyun and Kim Eun Bi performed the third OST single titled "Love Song". The rookies, who are both training to debut in HYWY Entertainments girl group HYWY Girls, joined the veteran to sing about falling in love with an unlikely person. The rhythmic medium temp track is the perfect tune to make your spring days even brighter.
As a child, there was a portrait in our family home in Paris that I always loved. Today, it’s known as Maya with Doll – but to me it was just a portrait of my mother, albeit a remarkable one. “Your grandfather was a painter,” she would say, whenever the subject of the canvas, one of many that hung around the house, came up in discussion. It was only when I began school, and whispers about my heritage started to follow me, that I realised what an understatement that was. My grandfather was far more than a painter. He was the defining figure of 20th-century art – and, as I would learn later from years of academic study, a true genius. It was a revelation that would shape the course of my life in many ways. When Picasso died – in 1973, the year before I was born – he left behind 45,000 works, not to mention personal objects and correspondence.
