David Ayer’s Bright is the ‘fast-talking cop teams up with Orc’ movie we didn’t know we needed.
Watching the trailer I’m shocked at how long it feels (I haven’t seen the movie, yet it feels like I already have).
I also get the impression that the movie is treating orcs as Ordinary People, except for being…well…orcs.
Max Landis apparently earned a few million to write this, yet I suspect all he did was replace aliens with supernatural beings because this sounds awfully like Alien Nation.
Davis Ayer’s Bright is a fascinating movie for numerous reasons. The first being that it was directed by Ayer himself, off the box office success of Suicide Squad. Next is that it was written by Max Landis, son of John Landis and a in-demand writer.
Though what’s most interesting is that it’s being financed to the tune of $90 million by Netflix, and will be seen no where else (as far as I am aware) but there. And while I know that they get their money not from box office receipts, but subscribers $90 is a lot of moolah and as far as I know, their most expensive production to date.
