What Is The Film About?

The plot of Day Shift on Netflix is still largely unknown. But, on the other hand, we are aware that Jamie Foxx plays the role of a parent living in San Fernando Valley and works as a pool cleaner in order to offer a pleasant life for his daughter, who is eight years old.

Or, at the very least, that’s how it appears to be on the surface. In actuality, he kills vampires for a living and utilizes the job of cleaning swimming pools as a front for his true source of money. He’s basically being paid to hunt out vampires, and he gets paid when the vampires deliver their fangs.

Although this movie is categorized as an action movie, it also contains a lot of comic elements, especially since Jamie Foxx plays the primary role.

Is There A Day Shift Trailer?

Yes, the movie Day Shift has already had a trailer released. On June 7, 2022, Netflix released an “inside look” at Day Shift that featured behind-the-scenes footage of some of the practical effects used in the film. As he talks about his feelings while filming some of the scenes, Jamie Foxx also provides a far clearer visual example of what he means when he uses the term “eating popcorn moments.” You can watch the inside look teaser down below!
