  • Its not just me right Bright is just shadowrun?

    I've been watching the trailer for this Netflixs show called bright. This is just shadowrun without cyberpunk.

    It really is shadowrun, the guy at1;50 is even wearing a mask that looks just like the original SR logo and the banger in the wheelchair looks like he is wearing trodes. and it is a movie, not a series, but it may be setting up a series.

    ​you could easily set this in the 2020s of the SR world

      You said "shadowrun without cyberpunk," and I thought "that's like a Philly cheese steak with no steak, they've got a different word for that, it's a fucking cheese sandwich"

      ...but then I watched the trailer and was clued in to what you mean. It definitely does look like the kind of story that could have happened to somebody in the Shadowrun world sometime in the 2010s. And now I have yet more stuff I'm looking forward to watching on Netflix, so thanks for that.


      Not so noble anymore.

        If anything it's like shadowrun the early years, although I get more of an Tolkien-esk alien nation vibe.

          Seems like Shadowrun universe just after the Awakening in 2012

            Holy crap that does seem like Shadowrun during the build up to the higher magics and cyberpunk themes. So sequel hook at the end will be dragons getting loose and at least one running for President I guess.

              Pretty much, yeah.

              ...but no dwarves or trolls?

              0/10 not enough diversity.

                I'd be willing to bet the guys at the police station who take evidence and the ones who handle the cars are dwarves and there's probably a troll somewhere. It's clearly not just elves and orcs, there's a faerie and probably some other stuff.

                  The youtube comments for this are nothing but people either sqeeing SHADOWRUN! or asking WHAT THE HELL IS SHADOWRUN?

                  ​I wonder if Topps could sue over this?

                    They could, if they're the ones who own the franchise, but there doesn't seem to be any cyberpunk elements aside from the societal inequality. Something that would help would be the reason for why there's orcs and elves. It doesn't seem to be a goblinization 'disease' thing like Shadowrun.

                    At a certain point it would be like trademarking the term Space Marine. How many urban fantasy books are out there, have been out there unchallenged, with orcs and elves in modern times? This isn't even the only movie with modern day orcs or elves.

                      The faery part reminded me of The Hollows series by Kim Harrison.

                        Necroing to say that the 2nd trailer dropped a while back and there is in fact a dragon that appears flying through the sky in the distance for a brief blink and you will miss it moment 43 seconds in https://youtu.be/MUY3GVByRUs?t=42s
