Your Lucky Day was released on Netflix on March 8, and it didn't take long for it to rise up the streamer's top 10 movie list. As of March 15, it's currently ranked at the No. 5 spot, meaning tons of people are watching it. But this doesn't come as a surprise since it's a dark thriller flick, and that's a genre most people love. Also, the premise itself will capture your interest right away.

After a lucky man obtains a $156 million lottery ticket at a small convenience store, an argument ensues that quickly turns deadly when a drug dealer holds the entire store hostage to get the winning ticket. During the hostage situation, a fatal shootout happens with a cop. This leads the drug dealer to attempt to make a deal with the witnesses where they'd get a cut of the money if they helped cover up what happened.

Filmmaker Daniel Brown wrote, directed, and produced the movie. Luke Barnett and Adam Baxter signed on to produce as well. But who stars in the leading role of the down-on-his-luck drug dealer? What about the rest of the cast? No worries! We shared a cast guide to who plays who right below.
