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.

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.
