On Netflix now, Bright stars Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Noomi Rapace, Lucy Fry, Edgar Ramirez, and Ike Barinholtz. While reports swirled last week that Netflix was already eying a Bright sequel, the streaming service made it official today, confirming that Will Smith and Joel Edgerton are "expected" to reprise their lead roles in Bright 2. Max Landis, who wrote the first film, will not be back.

"I have gone, like to a degree that's embarrassing, full JRR Tolkien on this", he declared.

"Bright" reportedly pulled in 11 million views during its first three days on Netflix, and though its critics score on Rotten Tomatoes stands at a dismal 28%, its audience score fared much better at 88%. "From the director of Suicide Squad and the writer of Victor Frankenstein comes a fresh slice of hell that somehow represents new lows for them both", IndieWire's David Ehrlich says in his review. It's now the top film on the streaming service in more than 190 countries.

While Netflix doesn't release viewing numbers, the service declared that Bright was the most-viewed Netflix film ever for its first week, in every one of the 190-plus countries it services.

Bright, the cinematic wreck that Netflix unleashed upon the world in December, is officially getting a sequel. Nielsen reportedly tracked the film's numbers, saying it was viewed by 11 million people in the USA over three days. The film's script did receive a mixed reception from critics, so it will be interesting to see how Ayer does writing the sequel. Together, they protect a magic wand from a variety of supernatural characters working to get their hands on it. Not really. But did enough Netflix viewers watch it for you to carry yourself with a general air of disdain for and disappointment in your peers?
