With Will Smith being one of Hollywood’s most successful actors, Netflix really hit a home run debuting Bright will Smith playing Lead. Smith co-stars in the film with Joel Edgerton, who plays an ork. The two play a two LAPD officers paired up together in a magical future.

 

Bright is set in an alternate reality in which races from the realms live among us (humans).
