Netflix Releases Backstory Featurette Video for ‘Bright’
Ron Perillo / 12 months ago
Netflix‘ big budget fantasy action movie ‘Bright’ introduced a unique world to television. It combines elements and creatures of fantasy with contemporary setting. It is also apparent to everyone who saw the movie that a large chunk of the backstory is not explained in full. That is of course, due to time constraints since the movie has to be cut down to feature length. However, a few weeks after its premiere, Netflix has now released a short video featurette providing a backstory to the movie. In particular, it revolves around the history of magic in the ‘Bright’ universe.
Bright: History of Magic Featurette Video
They probably should have released this right before the movie. It would have made the storyline much clearer for some. Although this video seems like a rush job. Since the narrator’s audio is actually not as loud as the background music in some parts. Making it difficult to hear.
As it stands now, much of the audience actually like the movie. It stands at 88% positive viewer approval on Rotten Tomatoes, despite having a 28% Fresh score from professional critics. Not that Netflix minds the critical lashing. In fact, they have already approved for a sequel even before Bright premiered. Whether it will be another $100 million budget movie is still up in the air. Afterall, around $20 million of that is for Will Smith’s salary alone.
