Is that such a brilliant concept?
“Vibrant,” the critically-maligned Netflix movie starring Will Smith and Joel Edgerton as an LAPD officer and his orc companion, is getting a sequel.
The movie, largely billed because the streaming firm’s first blockbuster, was launched in December, and although Netflix claimed it was the highest-viewed Netflix movie ever in its first week, evaluations have been tough, to say the least.
The Wrap referred to as it “astoundingly dangerous in just about each means,” IndieWire dubbed it “a recent slice of hell” and The Hollywood Reported declared it “embarrassing.”
Screenwriter Max Landis is not going to return for the sequel, in line with Leisure Weekly, however Smith and Edgerton will, together with director David Ayer, who will take over writing duties.
For his half, Ayer defended his movie from the damaging evaluations, joking that he wished to place IndieWire’s F-rated assessment on his fridge.
“Highest praise is a powerful response both means. It is a f*cking epic assessment. It is a massive enjoyable film… Each film is a labor of affection for me. I’ve by no means chased the viewers, and I do know my work might be polarizing,” the “Suicide Squad” director wrote on Twitter.
“Vibrant” reportedly pulled in 11 million views throughout its first three days on Netflix, and although its critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes stands at a dismal 28%, its viewers rating fared a lot better, scoring 88%.
