Theatrical Release Poster
Daylight's End is a 2016 post apocalyptic film set sometime after a mysterious plague has devastated the planet and turned the majority of the world's human population into blood-hungry creatures. Johnny Strong stars in the film as Thomas Rourke, a drifter on a vengeful hunt who stumbles across a band of survivors, led by Frank Hill (Lance Henriksen). Rourke then joins the band to help them defend themselves and to escape to sanctuary.
The following weapons were used in the film Daylight's End:
The sidearm carried by Thomas Rourke (Johnny Strong) is an Colt M1911A1 with extended magazines, at one point with target sights. Frank Hill (Lance Henriksen) uses an engraved one.

One survivor uses an MP5A3 with a Surefire forend.

The MP5 is the one "firing". Due to the lower budget, this gun is likely an airsoft replica.
