New trailer for David Ayer's Bright is full of magic and bullets

A new trailer has arrived online for director David Ayer's BRIGHT, a film that sees the fantasy genre colliding with the buddy cop sub-genre of action.

Scripted by Max Landis, BRIGHT is set 

in an alternate present-day where humans, orcs, elves and fairies have been coexisting since the beginning of time.  Ward, a human, and Jakoby, an orc, embark on a routine night patrol that will alter the future of their world as they know it.  Battling both their own personal differences as well as an onslaught of enemies, they must work together to protect a young female elf and a thought-to-be-forgotten relic, which in the wrong hands could destroy everything.

Will Smith and Joel Edgerton play the mismatched human and orc partners, and are joined in the cast by Noomi Rapace, Lucy Fry, Edgar Ramirez, Ike Barinholtz, Enrique Murciano, Jay Hernandez, Andrea Navedo, Veronica Ngo, Alex Meraz, Margaret Cho, Brad William Henke, Dawn Olivieri, and Kenneth Choi.

The new trailer really plays up the combination of genres, featuring bullets flying everywhere while magical things happen and the cops have comedic exchanges of dialogue. Honestly, I'm not really into the details of what's going on in this trailer, but I'm still intrigued to see how the mash-up of fantasy and cop action will play out over a feature running time.

BRIGHT will be released through the Netflix streaming service on December 22nd.
