Netflix has debuted the first trailer for Day Shift, an action-comedy starring Jamie Foxx, Dave Franco, and Snoop Dogg as modern day vampire hunters.
Helmed by veteran stuntman and first-time director J.J. Perry—stunt coordinator on John Wick: Chapter 2 and Fast and Furious 9—Day Shift sees Foxx playing a family man opposite Meagan Good, claiming he’s a pool cleaner in the San Fernando Valley when in reality he’s kitted out to dispatch the undead.
The trailer offers a bit of Franco’s character, who has just gotten into the business and wets himself during his first vamp encounter. We also get a glimpse of Snoop Dogg’s role as he helps get Foxx’s Reid back into the vampire hunting union. “You know what I see when I see a vamp? A big ol’ dollar sign,” says Reid. There’s also a reference to the Twilight series.
The trailer certainly doesn’t skimp on the violence, but the Netflix film is produced by John Wick series director Chad Stahelski, so that’s no surprise.
Day Shift is set to arrive Aug. 12, 2022.
