Will Smith has faced a host of strange threats on screen over the course of his career, and the list is only growing.

Netflix has unveiled a new teaser for its upcoming film “Bright,” and the preview is full of fantastical creatures and elements. The movie is set in an alternate present-day — one in which humans have always lived alongside orcs, elves, and fairies. Their peaceful cohabitation looks like it will be shaken up, though; Smith hints in the trailer that a situation “doesn’t end well.”

The roughly 30-second video shows off the bizarre world that protagonists Ward (Smith) and Jakoby (Joel Edgerton) live and work in. The two serve as cops in this unique setting and come up against a dark threat. See for yourself below.

Along with Smith and Edgerton, the film stars Noomi Rapace, Lucy Fry, Edgar Ramirez, Margaret Cho, and Ike Barinholtz.

“Bright” will begin streaming on Netflix in December.
