Will Smith and Joel Edgerton star in the film Bright, currently streaming on Netflix December 22.

A bold new action-thriller from director David Ayer, Bright follows the story of two police officers, played by Smith (Officer Ward) and Edgerton (Officer Jakoby), and how they have to patrol the very mean streets of L.A.

What’s different, however, is that this world is also filled with mythical creatures. Elves are on the highest level of the economic ladder, even more so than humans, while Orcs are the true gangsters on the streets who absolutely hate the police. The fact that Jakoby is also an Orc puts strain on he and Ward’s relationship, not to mention Jakoby is also hated by his own people. Still, these two form a most unlikely duo in working to keep the streets of Los Angeles safe from a sinister underworld filled with gang violence and dark magical forces at work.

Check out the video coverage of the press conference, which ScreenPicks attended, courtesy of Dulce Osana, in which Smith, Edgerton, Ayer and the other cast members discuss the film’s relevancy to today’s world and much more!
