Bright Is Getting a Sequel Because This Is the World We Deserve

Netflix has now confirmed that a sequel to Bright has been commissioned with Smith, Edgerton and Ayer all expected to return. The one upside is that polarizing screenwriter Max Landis will not be returning for the Bright sequel.

Watch an announcement video from Netflix below, which sees Orcs "auditioning" for the sequel film. So did Bright completely sweep Netflix subscribers across the board?

Because Netflix closely guards any actual, real data about how many people watch its shows and movies, no one can say for sure just how much of a success Bright is, but a Nielsen estimate (which is far from flawless, with the company still working out the kinks in its process for streaming content) puts the number of Bright viewers on the movie's opening weekend at 11 million (there are roughly 100 million Netflix subscribers worldwide).

The film followed LA-based cop procedurals that Ayer has made including End of Watch, Street Kings and Harsh Times, only this world melded an Alien Nation element: Smith's cop partners with an Orc (Edgerton), and the world was populated by other mythic creatures.

Bright was universally panned on release.

While the film was largely panned by critics, with The Hollywood Reporter's John DeFore calling it "plenty embarrassing", Bright is now the No. 1 movie on Netflix in over 190 countries, and is being streamed more by worldwide users than domestic. The Daily Telegraph gave it two stars, writing: "You'll either extend the movie the latitude [scriptwriter Max] Landis and Ayer think they deserve, or you'll stare at it for two long hours wondering, amid the bullets and an terrible lot of rainy confusion, why they think they deserve it".

Forbes called it "visually grotesque, dreadfully tiresome and hopelessly convoluted". In fact, it's the No. 1 movie on Netflix in every country. "I've lived a insane love and I guess my movies reflect that".
