The 39-year-old actor made it very clear that he’s not throwing any shade at his work in movies like “Thor: Ragnarok” or “Avengers: Endgame.” Heck, the Russo brothers, who directed “Infinity War” and “Endgame,” are producers on the “Extraction” films. It’s just that they are a different animal. Elements of those superhero movies absolutely have to be done with CGI, it’s just the nature of the beast. Tyler Rake, however, could exist in our world, taking on very real villains. There’s a grounded nature to it that director Sam Hargrave makes full use of.
In addition to the satisfaction that comes from doing practical stunt work, there is a danger as well. For as much preparation that goes into landing a helicopter on a train or lighting a person on fire, anything can go wrong. “Probably the most intense part was not so much the exhaustion levels,” Chris Hemsworth said. “But just the sheer terror of all the things that could have gone wrong, but thankfully didn’t.”
“Extraction 2” hits Netflix on June 16, 2023. You can also check out the official synopsis for the sequel below.
Chris Hemsworth returns as Tyler Rake in “Extraction 2,” the sequel to Netflix’s blockbuster action film “Extraction.” After barely surviving the events of the first movie, Rake is back as the Australian black ops mercenary, tasked with another deadly mission: rescuing the battered family of a ruthless Georgian gangster from the prison where they are being held.
