Netflix is looking to get a light-hearted start in October with action comedy movie Vampires vs. the Bronx. The movie trailer was released yesterday, and it looks like a wild ride, featuring an amazing cast, as a group of friends tries to protect their block from vampires.
Broadway Video produced Vampires vs. the Bronx with Osmany Rodriguez directing. The film’s distribution rights were acquired by Netflix in September of 2020, with the streaming platform slotting the film for a release in October.
The movie was announced in August of 2018, with filming taking place in 2019. After the COVID pandemic, there was some hindrance to the release date, but now the movie is coming to Netflix. So, here we break down some details before the release of the film.
Vampires vs. the Bronx Netflix Cast – Some Great Newcomers and Familiar Faces
Vampires vs. the Bronx features a large ensemble cast with some newcomers.
The recent proliferation of media and streaming platforms has allowed a growing number of minority actors to get their shot in movies and TV shows. Netflix has been at the forefront of introducing new actors, and with this movie, some new faces are getting the wide release treatment.
The cast of Vampires vs. the Bronx was announced along with the announcement of the movie in 2018. Some actors were included later, but most of the cast was set from the start, along with some interesting groups of cameo and supporting familiar faces.
Vampires vs. the Bronx Netflix cast is led by Jaden Michael, who plays Miguel Martinez. He is supported by Gerald W. Jones III, who plays Bobby Walker, Gregory Diaz IV plays Luis Acosta, Coco Jones plays Rita, Adam David Thompson plays Alexis, and Vladimir Caamano plays Papo.
Other cast members are supporting and appearing in cameo roles. Method Man, Chris Redd, The Kid Mero, Shea Whigham, Jeremie Harris appear in various capacities. Zoe Saldana is also listed as appearing in the film’s Netflix page.
Vampires vs. the Bronx Plot Details – What is the Movie About?
The new Netflix movie’s premise is pretty funny with SNL alum Osmany Rodriguez directing the movie with the script he wrote along with Blaise Hemingway. The filming for the movie began in 2018, and after two years, Vampires vs. the Bronx will finally be available for viewing.
According to Netflix, the plot of Vampire vs. the Bronx follows, “Three gutsy kids from a rapidly gentrifying Bronx neighborhood stumble upon a sinister plot to suck all the life from their beloved community.”
It seems the topic of gentrification is being given a literal face. Instead of figurative blood-sucking talk, gentrification, and those who occupy other people’s cultures are being compared to vampires, and three kids try to prevent the vampires from taking their neighborhood.
The teen movie has a great cast, and considering the people involved in the making of the film, it will probably be a fun ride. At just 1 hour and 26 minutes of runtime, the film will be a quickfire action/comedy taking shots at current situations of gentrification.
