Bad Boys TV Spin-off

Update: The Hollywood Reporter says NBC has given a formal pilot order to this still-untitled show, and some new details about the plot have come to light. Those new details can be found at the bottom of our original article from October 2017, which begins below.

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.

2018 is just getting Bright-er by the minute.

A sequel to the critically maligned, inexplicably popular Bright has officially been greenlit by Netflix, which will bring back director David Ayer and stars Will Smith and Joel Edgerton. The one upside is that polarizing screenwriter Max Landis will not be returning for the Bright sequel.

Bright Featurette - History of Magic

Netflix debuted their first blockbuster movie earlier this month in the form of Bright. Directed by David Ayer, the movie takes place in an alternate universe where fantasy beings like orcs, elves and fairies live in the world with humans. But their co-existence isn’t exactly harmonious as prejudice still exists among humans against certain species, creating tension on the streets where crime is heightened by the presence of magic.

If you’re among the population who hasn’t yet taken the plunge into Bright, possibly because of all the bad reviews for the movie starring Will Smith and Joel Edgerton, then a new featurette might convince you otherwise. Styled as a mini-documentary that you might see on The History Channel, the featurette takes a look at the history of magic in Bright and how that world came to be. Read More »

Bright ratings

Netflix is notoriously protective of its membership’s viewing numbers for specific shows and movies, unless the streaming service is bragging about binge statistics and dunking on a user or two for their viewing choices. So we don’t know exactly how many people have watched Bright, David Ayer‘s new orc cop fantasy thriller starring Will Smith and Joel Edgerton, but a new report which cites Nielsen metrics says that eleven million Netflix subscribers decided to click “play” on the movie in only its first three days of release. I bet Netflix is feeling pretty good about its decision to make Bright 2 right about now.

bright featurette

You can’t have a Will Smith movie without blowing up a few buildings and David Ayer‘s Bright promises to do just that.

The new Netflix film has been touted as a gritty urban fantasy, where humans and orcs are entangled in a bitter species war on the streets of Los Angeles. Clunky race metaphors aside, Bright promises to be another explosive, adrenaline-pumping Will Smith cop movie — with some magic wands and creepy costume design thrown in. A new Bright featurette explores all of the above.

Bright clip

Bright! It’s definitely a real movie from the director of Suicide Squad and the writer of Victor Frankenstein! Will Smith and Joel Edgerton are mismatched cops in a world of magic. Smith is the tough, no-nonsense human cop, and Edgerton is his Orc partner. Can these two cops from opposite worlds learn to get along? Maybe this new Bright clip will answer that question.

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.
