The Most Popular Movies On Netflix Right Now Besides 'Day Shift'

A British crime thriller and video game adaptation are also trending on the streaming service.

“Day Shift” is currently the most popular movie on Netflix, according to the streaming service’s public ranking system.

The new action-comedy stars Jamie Foxx as a blue-collar dad moonlighting as a vampire hunter. The film, which premiered on Aug. 12 to mixed reviews, also features Dave Franco, Snoop Dogg and Meagan Good.

The second most popular movie of the moment is “Uncharted,” a video game franchise adaptation that joined Netflix earlier this month after a February theatrical release. Starring Tom Holland, Mark Wahlberg and Antonio Banderas, the film follows treasure hunters as they race to recover a long-lost fortune.
