During the Oscars on Sunday, Netflix revealed the first teaser trailer for its upcoming original film “Bright,” starring Will Smith.
The movie is set in an alternate reality in which humans live alongside mythical creatures like orcs, elves, and fairies. Smith plays an LAPD cop who teams with the very first Orc officer (Joel Edgerton) to protect a powerful wand that everyone is after.
Noomi Rapace, Edgar Ramirez, Ike Barinholtz, and Kenneth Choi also star in the film, directed by “Suicide Squad” helmer David Ayer and written by Max Landis.
The 30-second teaser opens with Smith driving around the city in his police cruiser as Woody Guthrie’s “This Land Is Your Land” plays. The clip then cuts to several fantastical figures (including Rapace) and later shows Smith holding a rusty sword.
“I’m assuming this doesn’t end well,” Smith says as the teaser ends.
Filming wrapped earlier this month and the movie is due for release in December.
