Day Shift – Netflix reveals cast, release date, trailer and premise for new film

July 13, 2022

This article contains the release date, cast and premise of Netflix movie Day Shift.

With Netflix changing their slate announcements, it’s no surprise we’re already watching August. With a growing streaming market, Netflix seems to be more willing to release its schedule in advance, rather than in the second half of the month. The next stop on their news tour is the movie Day shift featuring the always talented Jamie Foxx.

The premise of the Netflix movie Day shift

Courtesy of Netflix – Jamie Foxx stars as a hard-working blue-collar dad who just wants to provide a good life for his quick-witted daughter, but his mundane job cleaning pools in the San Fernando Valley is a front for his true source of income, hunting and killing vampires as part of an International Union of Vampire Hunters.

The film is directed by JJ Perry and the script belongs to Tyler Tice and Shay Hatten.

Producers are Shaun Redick, Yvette Yates Redick, Chad Stahelski and Jason Spitz, and executive producers are Jamie Foxx, Datari Turner, Charles JD Schlissel, Peter Baxter, Alex Young.

Our opinion on the principle

It looks very generic. That’s not to say the premise won’t be entertaining, but you see “pool cleaning work,” “vampires,” and a father protective of his daughter, and you can see why Netflix decided to order this movie. But maybe we’ll be fooled by the premise. Maybe this vampire-hunting premise will do more than a popcorn movie to boost Netflix HQ viewing hours.

Our opinion on the trailer

There’s a lot of energy in this trailer. With a hint of comedy and violence, and Jamie Foxx seemingly embracing his role, we can expect plenty of action and shocking moments to entice viewers. And what is… SNOOP DOGG! Well, it’s worth watching just to hear Snoop Dogg contribute to his acting career. The plot isn’t entirely clear, but Jamie Foxx’s character needs to turn over a new leaf with his lifestyle, it seems. But with a generic feel to the trailer, the premise is perhaps secondary to the film’s names.

The film will be released on Netflix on Friday August 12, 2022.
