While Bright has clearly been profitable for Netflix, despite its expensive $90 million price tag, it has garnered incredibly negative reviews since its December 22nd debut on the service, with The Wrap branding it "astoundingly bad", IndieWire dubbing it "the worst movie of 2017", and Australia's News.com.au calling it a "pile of centaur droppings". The streaming service confirmed a follow-up film by releasing a video of "leaked orc auditions" on Wednesday. Not only that, but in each of the 190-plus countries in which Netflix is available, Bright is reportedly the number one movie, with "more people viewing the film internationally than domestically".More news: Nintendo Miiverse returns to the internet with massive fan-made archive
Critics trashed Bright when it was released, but it's apparently been a huge success for the streaming platform, considering the fast sequel plans. Reviews lambasted the show, in some cases calling it Netflix's worst original movie ever. Whether the sequel will be better than the original is anyone's guess. Bright also tried to address sensitive topics such as racism, but failed pathetically - remember, "Today, fairy lives don't matter".More news: Bitcoin forbidden by Islam: Egypt's grand mufti
