When Netflix launched a highly funded original movie Bright starring Will Smith, the film was hit with many negative reviews from critics. On the other hand, it got a lot of attention from Netflix customers having been streamed over 11 million times in the US alone in just the first 72 hours and much of the feedback is overly positive:

Grabbing a high-level actor like Will Smith as the lead and investing heavily into the movie was a massive gamble for Netflix. Fortunately, the returns are already paying off for the streaming giant, and the Orcs have taken to Twitter today with “leaked footage” the confirms there will be a sequel to Bright as shown in the video below:
