The "Worst Movie Of 2017" Is Getting A Sequel And The Memes Are Savage
4 January 2018, 13:37
Will Smith is returning to Netflix and people have a LOT of feelings about it.
Somewhat surprising 2018 movie news broke today (January 4th) as it was revealed that Bright, the Will Smith-starring Netflix original about Orc police which was dragged by critics and audiences alike when it was released last month, is, um, getting a sequel.

The action movie, which currently boasts a score of 28% on Rotten Tomatoes, was viewed by 11 million people in it's first three days of release. Director David Ayre will return as well as write the script, with stars Smith and Joel Edgerton also set to reprise their roles.
Reaction to the news online has, to put it kindly, been "mixed". Hey, at least we've got some good memes out of it. But the real question is - what will the title of this new movie be?
Here's just a few of our fave reactions to the Bright sequel we've spotted online so far:
