Film Bits: Netflix Releases Two Stunning Trailers with ‘Five Came Back’ and ‘Bright’

‘Five Came Back’ Trailer Showcases Sacrifices of Hollywood Legends

Netflix continues its slow and steady coup against Hollywood with the first trailer for Five Came Back. Based on the book Five Came Back: A Story of Hollywood and the Second World War by Mark Harris, the three part documentary series explores the stories of five filmmakers—William Wyler, George Stevens, John Ford, Frank Capra, and John Houston—who left their lives to serve their country and who came back to tell the story through film. The series is narrated by Meryl Streep and features interviews with some of the top filmmakers of today, including Steven Spielberg, Guillermo del Toro, Francis Ford Coppola, and Lawrence Kasdan. Additionally, the documentaries discussed in the series will also be made available on the streaming service. Five Came Back premieres March 31 on Netflix.


First ‘Bright’ Teaser Shows Proof of Concept


Netflix also dropped the first teaser trailer for David Ayer’s (Suicide Squad, Fury) next film, Bright. Starring Will Smith (Concussion), Noomi Rapace (Prometheus), and Joel Edgerton (Loving), the film combines elements of high fantasy and urban realism to tell a tale of heroes and magic like you’ve never seen it. Smith plays a human cop forced to work with an orc to find a sword with a mystical power. Coming from the mind of screenwriter Max Landis, this has all the makings of being an interesting genre deconstruction. The trailer doesn’t reveal much but as a proof of concept, it works. I’m sure we’ll see more between now and it’s December release, so stay tuned for that.


‘Godzilla: King of Monsters’ Adds to Cast


It’s full speed ahead of Legendary’s monster universe. Kong: Skull Island is slated for release in just a few weeks and already plans are in the works for the next monster entry, Godzilla: King of Monsters. A sequel to 2014’s Godzilla from director Gareth Edwards (Rogue One), the latest film will be overseen by director Michael Dougherty (Krampus) who also co-wrote the script with Zach Shields. Millie Bobbie Brown (Stranger Things) and Kyle Chandler (Bloodline) had previously been cast in the film, and they’re now joined by Vera Farmiga (Bates Motel). The three will reported play a family, though little else is known. As of now, the only star likely to appear from the original film is Ken Watanabe. Slated for release on March 22, 2019, the hope is bring Kong and Godzilla together in an epic cinematic battle sometime on May 29, 2020.
