Day Shift is Netflix’s next vampire action-comedy film, directed by the same folks that taught John Wick how to kick a**. It stars Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx in the main role. On August 12, 2022, at 3 a.m., it will be available exclusively on the worldwide streaming platform. J.J. Perry, best renowned for his stunt work in blockbuster films such as John Wick and F9: The Fate of the Furious, will make his directorial debut with the Jamie Foxx vehicle. Chad Stahelski (John Wick) will serve as producer, Peter Baxter, and Jamie Foxx will serve as executive producers, and Tyler Tice and Shaun Hatten will serve as co-writers.
Here’s everything you need to know about Day Shift before it premieres on Netflix:
The vampire action comedy directed by J.J. Perry and featuring Django Unchained star Jamie Foxx will be released exclusively on Netflix on August 12, 2022, at 3 a.m. ET. This implies that the film will not be accessible in cinemas or on other streaming services. This Friday, Netflix subscribers can see all of the funny vampire action.
What can we anticipate from the movie?
Tyler Tice and Shay Hatten wrote the script, and the film is based on Tice’s tale. According to the official description for the Netflix film:
“Jamie Foxx plays a hardworking blue-collar father who only wants to provide a happy life for his quick-witted daughter, but his prosaic San Fernando Valley pool cleaning job is a cover for his true source of income, hunting and murdering vampires as part of a worldwide Union of vampire hunters.”
On July 11, 2022, the official trailer for the action-comedy was released, providing a first look at Jamie Foxx’s vampire hunting and wisecracking blue-collar dad. It gave audiences an idea of how much gore, action, humor, and adventure they may anticipate from the picture. The film aims to go beyond the vampire movie limitations established by Twilight and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, demonstrating how far we’ve progressed since then. The trailer’s opening sequence, in which Foxx completes a task and retrieves the vampire’s fangs, gave viewers a sense of Foxx’s vampire hunting action and visual effects.
The teaser also introduced the characters of Dave Franco and Snoop Dogg in the film, as well as their interactions with Jamie Foxx’s Bud Jablonski. It was clear that Day Shift would have some high-octane action and gore, but the intensity would be interrupted by funny interludes.
Who’s in J.J. Perry’s Day Shift?
In addition to Foxx’s performance as Bud Jablonski, the film also stars Dave Franco as Seth, Bud’s sidekick and an inexperienced rookie in the world of vampire hunting. Snoop Dogg, a well-known rapper, and media figure will play Big John Elliott. Karla Souza, Meagan Good, Natasha Liu Bordizzo, Oliver Masucci, Steve Howey, Scott Adkins, C.S. Lee, and Zion Broadnax will also appear. On August 12, 2022, Netflix will release Day Shift.
