Jamie Foxx Takes On Vampires In “Day Shift”

Although the Twilight heyday may have passed, Netflix continues to show fans that vampires can still be fashionable. For their upcoming film Day Shift, the streamer has now unveiled a brand-new teaser. Jamie Foxx plays a vampire hunter in this action-comedy who just wants to make a stable living.

The trailer starts out with Foxx’s character switching from his cover job as a pool cleaner to his real profession as a vampire hunter before easing into a violent, action-packed scene of Foxx killing a vampire. As Foxx describes their plan to Dave Franco, viewers also get a sense of his persona.

The trailer then makes it clear that Foxx doesn’t only kill vampires for pleasure; he also needs the money to support his family. He can’t do it by himself, so he asks for help from another guy (Snoop Dogg) to regain entry to the union of vampire hunters. Other vampire-hunting moments are presented in the trailer in addition to comedic segments starring Foxx and Franco.

The movie looks to be high-octane and delightfully violent, and it doesn’t hold back, according to the trailer. It demonstrates the kind of gore viewers might anticipate seeing as well as the various methods of killing a vampire. There are both humorous and poignant passages in those clips, as Foxx’s character struggles to provide for his wife and daughter. The opening title cards of the trailer advertise a movie “from the people who taught John Wick how to kick ass” as being one worth watching.

“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 San Fernando Valley pool cleaning job is a front for his real source of income, hunting and killing vampires as part of an international Union of vampire hunters.”

In Day Shift, Foxx, Franco, Snoop Dogg, Karla Souza, Meagan Good, Natasha Liu Bordizzo, Oliver Masucci, Steve Howey, Scott Adkins, C.S. Lee, and Zion Broadnax are all prominent characters. The film marks J.J. Perry’s directorial debut. He is well renowned for his work as a stunt coordinator. Screenwriters Tyler Tice and Shay Hatten (John Wick: Chapter 3, Army of Thieves) collaborated on the film. Producers include Chad Stahelski, Jason Spitz, Yvette Yates, and Shaun Redick.
