Here's the first trailer for 'Bright', Netflix's most expensive film yet. The $100 million fantasy epic stars Will Smith as a human cop who's partnered with an Orc (played by Joel Edgerton).

It's set in an alternative version of the present day, that also includes elves and fairies.

It's directed by David Ayer – the man behind 'Suicide Squad' (which also starred Smith) and cop movie 'End of Watch' – based on a screenplay by Max Landis. It's also financed partly by Smith's production company Overbrook Entertainment.

'Bright' will be released on Netflix on 22nd December.

Netflix has also announced that 'Safe', a new eight-part drama series, has started filming in Manchester. Created by Harlan Coben ('Stay Close') and Danny Brocklehurst ('Shameless'), it stars Michael C Hall ('Six Feet Under') as Tom, a paediatric surgeon struggling to deal with the loss of his wife to cancer.

He finds himself facing a moral dilemma – how far will he go to protect his two teenage daughters?

'Safe' will air sometime in 2018.
