Netflix Announces ‘Bright’ Movie Sequel

Netflix Jan. 3 announced plans to make a sequel to sci-fi action movie Bright, starring Will Smith and Joel Edgerton.

The subscription streaming video pioneer announced the sequel on its official Twitter account. The sequel will again be written and directed by David Ayer.

“Announcement: Orc auditions for the @BrightNetglix sequel are now closed. Thank you. Have a nice day,” read the tweet.

The $90 million movie, which features Smith and Edgerton as two LAPD officers paired to fight crime in an alternate universe, generated 11 million viewers at launch — the largest viewership for Netflix original movie, according to Nielsen.

  1. Bright may have had phenomenal viewership numbers (I was one of the people who tuned in because, hey! it’s a free Will Smith, genre film that we all hoped would be another “Men in Black”)! But it wasn’t another “Men in Black”. Instead, it was awful, and if Netflix thinks that because I watched the first one, I’ll waste so much as one second of my time on a second awful film, they are wasting their money! I realize that many people watched it (I was suckered in myself), but did anyone like it enough to want to submit themselves to a second ordeal? That’s what I’d like to know. Lets see the viewer opinions of the film instead of just the viewer numbers!

  2. I found Bright to be an enjoyable theater quality sci-fi fantasy movie. Although it seemed to be a composite of some other films I’ve seen, it was still new and exciting.

    I would just like to say to Netflix… Thank you for giving fans another opportunity to visit the world of Bright.
