As streaming services increasingly muscle in on traditional distributors' turf, we're seeing more from the likes if Netflix and Amazon. The former even ran a trailer for one of its original movies during the Oscars on Sunday night, so get your first proper look at David Ayer's Bright, starring Will Smith and Joel Edgerton.

Max Landis' original concept script blends fantasy mythology with End Of Watch-style cop action, as Smith and Edgerton are playing a human and an orc who must outrun the authorities, criminals and a variety of supernatural beings to protect a powerful magic wand. Lucy Fry is Tikka, a young elf with her own magical abilities who comes into possession of the wand and needs the leads' help when dark forces try to hunt her down.

From the first glimpse of the film, it's certainly interesting, with a cast that also includes Noomi Rapace, Edgar Ramirez and Ike Barinholtz. It'll hit Netflix in December.
