Will Smith does a cop-drama that is basically Shadowrun but minus the cyberpunk bits.

I dunno what the hell to think. Points for originality as far as making an actual high-budget show I guess?

Is this going to be a series or a movie?

Either way, I have the strangest boner right now...

A movie I think. I thought it was a series at first.

I could be, and probably will be, shit.  But I will watch the shit out of this.

I also really like the music near the middle of the trailer.

Wow, somebody played the new Shadowrun games and managed to convince Netflix to give them money.  Like, some of the the peoples face/hair combo in this trailer where spot on copies of character portraits from the games.

As if I needed a reason to have a netflix subscription, but this will do.  That said, if you want something in the mean time that's very cyberpunky, look up Ares on netflix, it was an interesting watch.

Yeah sorry, thought this was a series at first. I'm interested. This is about the only way you could do something like Shadowrun really- the actual IP just has too much background junk to explain.

Will Smith has had a pretty good track record throughout this Willennium. There's nothing about Smith's last dozen or so movies that would give me any cause to doubt this.

That looks pretty cool, actually.  

ETA - can't be Shadowrun, they set it in LA instead of Seattle.

Also, no dystopian cyberpunk society.  But still, like, there is no way this wasn't inspired in some part by the latest games.  They are leaning on the same art style heavily.

This not being dystopian makes it instantly better than every other cyberpunk thing. Just on its face, assuming every future is a bleak corporate fuckhole has gotten stale as hell.

Yeah, I'm totally cool with them doing it in the normal world.  I always thought the awakening off magic/mythical races into modern society, and how that changed things, was the most interesting part of Shadowrun lore.  Not the generic cyberpunk shit.

Yup very strong modern day shadowrun vibe instead of near future shadowrun.

This basically looks like a hybrid of Shadowrun and Alien Nation with the grimdark turned down and the "comedy" turned up.

Also, assuming every future is a bleak corporate fuckhole has only gotten stale because it's not the future any more and we don't need to assume =P

Yep, I'm down for some of this.

Funny that it's by the guy who directed Suicide Squad and we basically have Cop Deadshot, Elf Harley Quinn and Killer Croc the Ork as main characters.

the real issue with adapting Shadowrun today would be all of the problematic representations of the Japanese and Native Americans and the like that sprung from where the setting came from.
