We're still a ways off from a new Blade film, and a new John Wick entry won't arrive until next year. So why not combine the best of both worlds in the comfort of your own home?
Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx stars in Day Shift as Bud, an L.A. vampire hunter. Kicked out of his union for getting sloppy, he's hoping to get back in their good graces with another job that holds a big payday. There's also some heart-tugging nonsense about reuniting with his daughter. But really, this is about guns, decapitations and kicking ass. Joining his crew are Dave Franco as the persnickety Seth and Snoop Dogg as Big John. (I let out an audible whoop when I saw him pull out a gatling gun to mow down a bunch of vampires.)
J.J. Perry makes his directorial debut here. He previously served as second-unit director on a lot of low-budget action movies over the last decade, but most importantly worked on the first two John Wick films and the two most recent Fast and Furious films. Even if the movie isn't all it can be, the stunt work should be extraordinary.
Day Shift premieres exclusively on Netflix on August 12.
