bright trailer

Honestly, I’ve had a hard time telling the two main female characters in David Ayer‘s upcoming urban fantasy film, Bright apart from one another. They both have straggly white hair, pale wan skin, and those creepy contacts that give them wide black pupils. It also might have to do with the fact that neither have said a single word in the past few Bright trailers.

In terms of the plot, they couldn’t serve more different roles. Lucy Fry plays the helpless naif Tikka who Will Smith and Joel Edgerton‘s cops stumble upon, embroiling them in a war for a magic wand. Former Swedish The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo star Noomi Rapace, however, plays the villainous dark elf who sets out to acquire that wand — at any cost. The past two trailers have shown flashes of both characters, relatively indistinguishable for their silence. But Noomi Rapace finally speaks in this trailer. And naturally, she steals the show.

Bad Boys TV Spin-off

Plans for Bad Boys 3 may have stalled, but there’s may still be some more action yet in the form of a new Bad Boys TV spin-off. The planned show will focus on Gabrielle Union‘s character from Bad Boys II, an undercover operative with the DEA. While it’s doubtful Will Smith or Martin Lawrence‘s characters will show up, anyone looking for a Bad Boys fix might be keen to give the show a shot.

Will Smith and Joel Edgerton could be heroes for more than one day.

The new trailer for Bright has arrived, and it comes with a bunch of new footage of David Ayer‘s gritty fantasy thriller Netflix film about two mismatched cops — one a human, one an orc — who stumble upon a greater conspiracy involving fairies and magic wands.

But the most intriguing thing: the trailer teases a Bright: The Album soundtrack to be released in November. Could this mean that Will Smith is returning to the rap theme song scene?

Bright Featurette

After a detour into the superhero genre, David Ayer is back to making gritty cop dramas — but with a twist. The End of Watch director brought some of his Suicide Squad stars on board for his Netflix film Bright, which combines Ayer’s buddy-cop sensibilities with some of the supernatural elements he played with in his DCEU film.

Because you know the only thing missing from a buddy-cop movie are orcs.

bad boys III update

A year or two ago, the future of Bad Boys was looking extra bright with two sequels scheduled for release and writer-director Joe Carnahan (The Grey) at the helm. But he left the director’s chair on Bad Boys For Life, which was once planned to come out this year, then postponed to January 2018, and then scheduled for November of next year before its release date was scrapped altogether. Most Bad Boys 3 news has been disheartening lately, especially franchise star Martin Lawrence saying recently, “I don’t think it’s going to happen.”

Now the producer of the series, Jerry Bruckheimer, has given fans hope. Below, find out what Jerry Bruckheimer says about the hopeful future for Bad Boys 3.

Bad Boys 3

Bad Boys franchise fans eagerly awaiting the reunion of Will Smith and Martin Lawrence for Bad Boys 3, aka Bad Boys for Life, recently had some bad news delivered to them. The sequel was set for release by Sony Pictures on November 9, 2018, but the studio pulled it from the calendar completely while shuffling their release schedule around for the next couple years.

Pulling Bad Boys 3 from the calendar left us little hope that we’d ever see this sequel get made, especially since it had already been pushed back several times before. Unfortunately, our suspicions have been confirmed because now Martin Lawrence is casting doubt on whether the project will get made at all. Read More »

Bright Comic-Con Panel: Everything You Need to Know

Training Day meets Lord of the Rings is how Will Smith describes Bright, his next collaboration with director David Ayer.

His new movie is a genre mash-up, a cop film featuring orcs, fairies, elves, and a powerful magic wand.

Below, check out our reaction to a clip from Bright, some quotes from Ayer about the film, and more.

Bright trailer

David Ayer is no stranger to depicting cops on film. He’s made some good, gritty and dirty crime thrillers with End of Watch and Street Kings. Cops and Los Angeles fit comfortably in the filmmaker’s wheelhouse. It’s a world and genre he knows well. Ayer has now made another cop movie, Bright, which stars Will Smith and Joel Edgerton. They’re playing partners, but they’re a little different from the partners from Ayer’s previous movies: one of these is an orc. A hard-edged David Ayer movie with Will Smith, orcs, and fairies sounds like a blast, and it looks like one, too.

Below, watch the Bright trailer.

aladdin remake

The other day, it was reported Disney and filmmaker Guy Ritchie were having trouble finding their stars for Aladdin following a worldwide search. The news was a bit of a surprise considering they met with over 2,000 actors, looking for unknowns of Middle Eastern or Indian descent to play Aladdin and Jasmine in the musical. Producer Dan Lin previously said “we’re not here to make Prince of Persia,” to put worries about whitewashing to rest – although we later heard a rumor both ridiculous but believable that Tom Hardy was looked at for the villianous role of Jafar.

At the D23 Expo, we learned that live-action adaptation of Aladdin has found the stars it was reportedly having so much difficulty casting.
