Despite his character taking a bullet to the neck at the end of the original film, Chris Hemsworth will be back as Australian black ops mercenary Tyler Rake in the sequel to Netflix’s hugely popular 2020 action thriller, Extraction. The streamer announced Extraction 2 today with the release of a new and official Tudum teaser, confirming that Rake somehow managed to survive following his successful and action-packed attempt at rescuing an Indian drug lord’s kidnapped son within the confines of Dhaka, Bangladesh, even after being double-crossed.
It’s not a total surprise that Extraction 2 is getting a sequel, as the original ended up being one of Netflix’s most popular movies. Actually, it represents the most-watched Netflix film of all time, having pulled in 99 million viewers within its first four weeks of debut.
In 2020, the world met a new hero: Tyler Rake (Chris Hemsworth), a fearless black market mercenary who embarks on the deadliest mission of his career. But what seems lost …can still be extracted.
Directed by Sam Hargrave, this action-packed, edge-of-your-seat franchise is produced by Joe and Anthony Russo, the visionary directors of Avengers: Endgame.
“If you thought our first film pushed the limits, wait until you see what Sam and I have planned for this next installment,” Hemsworth said. Extraction 2 doesn’t have a release date yet, but the actor will also be back in Marvel Studios’ Thor: Love and Thunder, releasing on May 6, 2022.
