Fans haven’t heard much about Extraction 2 since production wrapped earlier this year. However, that changed at Netflix’s 2022 Tudum event, when a new behind-the-scenes video was shown off.
“Chris Hemsworth and director Sam Hargrave return for Extraction 2 – where the on-camera stunt work is just as mindblowing as the behind-the-scenes effort it takes to shoot it,” says the description.
Check out the Extraction 2 video below:
Extraction 2 is directed by Sam Hargrave from a screenplay written by returning scribe Joe Russo. Just like the 2020 film, it is also being produced by Avengers: Endgame directors Anthony and Joe Russo through their AGBO banner along with Hemsworth.
It will feature the return of Chris Hemsworth as skilled black-ops mercenary Tyler Rake, who was last seen by viewers with a gunshot wound to his neck. It remains to be seen how the sequel will address his survival from his near-fatal injury.
The original film took place in an underworld of weapons dealers and traffickers and followed a young boy who becomes the pawn in a war between notorious drug lords. It was positively received, with critics praising its action sequences. During its first month of release, it was Netflix’s most-watched film as it garnered 90 million households.
Extraction also starred David Harbour (Stranger Things, Black Widow), Derek Luke (13 Reasons Why), Fay Masterson (Vice), Golshifteh Farahani (Paterson), and newcomer Rudhraksh Jaiswal.
