What is the release date of the movie Day Shift?
We had to wait until the summer of 2022 to discover through an official trailer the first images of the next blockbuster with the “Netflix Original” seal. However, the beginnings of the project go back well before October 2020 and the announcement by Netflix of the start of production of the film. Note that the presence of Jamie Foxx was revealed at the same time. A few months later, between April and August 2021, principal filming took place in the heart of the city of Los Angeles in the state of California. Day Shift is finally released on August 12, 2022 on Netflix.
Day Shift is a production stamped “Netflix-Original” which implies an exclusive release on the SVOD service of the same name. It has happened in the past that certain feature films benefit from a physical edition, we are thinking in particular of The Irishman by Martin Scorsese, Roma by Alfonso Cuaron or Marriage Story by Noah Baumbach. You will have seen it. The works cited are intended to be “prestige”, where Day Shift seeks above all to please the general public. The release of a Blu-ray and / or a DVD therefore seems unlikely, the latter being intended for collectors film enthusiasts.
What is the synopsis of the movie Day Shift?
Under cover of being a simple unskilled worker, a father played by Jamie Foxx leads a nocturnal and bloody double life. The latter, whose job as a pool cleaner is only a facade, actually hunts the vampires that plague the region. The hunt is now on for this man who seeks above all to offer a good life to his 8-year-old daughter.

The screenplay is the work of Tyler Tice and Shay Hatten (Army of the Dead, John Wick Parabellum, Rebel Moon). From a technical point of view, the cinematographer’s chair is occupied by Toby Oliver (Dead to Me, Get Out) while that of editor returns to Paul Harb (Creed II, Expendables: Special Victims Unit). Finally, the soundtrack is composed by Tyler Bates, a musician who made a name for himself on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Atomic Blonde and Deadpool 2.
What is the cast of the movie Day Shift?
