Bright Trailer Reveals True Power of Netflix Original Films
“I’m legit shocked that this movie is coming to a streaming service and not theaters. This damn movie would make a shitload of money in theaters. A shitload. I think it would make money if they released it in theaters late December too – and that’s usually a dumping ground for weak-ass genre action flicks like this (remember Assassin’s Creed?). As a fan of both Training Day and Warcraft – sign me the hell up immediately. This one just became one of my most anticipated films of 2017.”

Death Note Clip Featuring Ryuk & Light Playing God
