Watch: Will Smith, Cast of Bright Discuss Upcoming Netflix Film

’Twas the week before Christmas, and stars Will Smith, Joel Edgerton and Noomi Rapace were getting ready to bring explosive action to the world this Friday, Dec. 22, with the Netflix film Bright. In this brand-new featurette, the fearless cast discuss shooting the movie’s mind-blowing action sequences, including an exciting gas station scene; working with director David Ayer; and how Rapace transformed herself into a terrifying villain.


Set in an alternate present day, Bright captures the story of two Los Angeles police officers, played by Smith (Officer Ward) and Edgerton (Officer Jakoby), who fight off orcs and the powerhouse villain elf played by Noomi Rapace (Leila) to save the world as they know it.

Take a look at the video above.

Bright will be available in select theaters and on Netflix starting Friday. In addition, Bright: The Album, produced by Atlantic Records and Ayer, is now available here.



Bye, Kinja! It's been fun (occasionally).

Looking forward to this one. I’m glad to see they used a lot of practical fx for the action sequences.

If anyone wants to watch another film with similar themes — human + non-human, buddy cop flick — I highly recommend Alien Nation, with James Caan and Mandy Patinkin. It spawned a pretty watchable TV series of the same name.

With Bright, I’m most curious to learn about the origins of this setup. Is this just how the world of the film is, with humans and fantasy beings living alongside each other, OR is it similar to the mentioned Alien Nation, where some event brings the two words together, forcing everyone to live side-by-side?

It looks like a ton of fun.
