If your future is so bright you gotta wear shades, watch out, because it’s about to get Brighter… with a recently announced Netflix Sequel to “Bright.”
To tease this new development in the alternate reality world of Bright, Netflix’s sci-fi/fantasy adventure, they released this short but awkwardly funny “audition” for the role of orcs in the upcoming sequel, Brighter. Take a look!
I’m glad that Netflix was the first to admit that the working title “Brighter” could use some work, because… yikes. That being said, I thought Bright was actually super good! Many critics disagree, but regular people streaming at home enjoyed it. I mean, Will Smith is solid gold. Seriously, he’s good in everything.
Official News on Bright and Brighter, the Sequel
According to a statement reported by Deadline, Netflix said that Bright was one of the most-viewed Netflix films ever in the week following its release in every single one of the hundreds of countries it services. According to Netflix, over 11 million people tuned in to watch the racially-charged buddy-cop epic over its first few days on the market.
Max Landis, the writer behind the original movie, Bright, is leaving the project in favor of director David Ayer, who plans to write and direct the upcoming sequel. Max Landis was the genius behind dark, found-footage sci-fi movie Chronicle, stoner action flick American Ultra, as well as the popular new TV show adaptation of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency that came out this year.
The Year Has Come to a Close, So Here’s Our List of the Best Sci-Fi Movies of 2017 This last year, we saw the release of many science fiction and comic book movies, but which ones stand out from the crowd? Well, quite a few, actually. Unfortunately, out of all those movies, there were only a few that stood out in good ways. Nearly every sci-fi movie that came out this year was a sequel, a reboot, or part of a larger series, and the rest were…
David Ayer definitely brought his experiences writing End of Watch, Sabotage, Training Day, Harsh Times, and plenty of other dark, grungy law enforcement-centric films to the directing of Bright. Despite its fantastical premise, Bright realistically represented the financial, racial, and personal struggles of the people and police officers in the corrupt, poverty-ridden areas of the world- specifically Los Angeles. Based on this alone, I believe we can predict an ever darker feel to the sequel Brighter now that Ayer will be both writing and directing.
