Chris Hemsworth, an Australian actor and a wet dream for women and men around the world made his breakthrough in 2011 when he debuted as Thor in Marvel Cinematic Universe, and eleven years later, he’s still a part of the franchise, with his next movie set to be released next Summer. Although he’s most known for the role of God of Thunder, Hemsworth filmed many other popular movies; including Snow White and the Huntsman, Rush, 12 Strong, Bad Times at the El Royale, Men in Black: International, and his most recent one — Extraction.
Written by Avengers: Endgame co-director Joe Russo, Extraction is an action thriller that follows Tyler Rake (Hemsworth), a former SASR operator turned black-market mercenary as he is hired to rescue the kidnapped son of an imprisoned international crime lord. But in the underworld of weapons and drug dealers, the already deadly mission appears to be impossible.
Extraction was released exclusively on Netflix in April 2020. Despite mixed to negative reviews, it was Netflix’s most successful movie at the time of its release (one of the movie’s advantages was that it was one of the few new movies that were released while theaters were closed back in 2020). The movie was watched by 99 million households in its first four weeks. And of course, with that huge success, Netflix didn’t waste any time announcing the sequel.
The production of the sequel began five months ago, after Hemsworth completed his work on the upcoming movie Thor: Love and Thunder. And director Sam Hargrave recently shared on Instagram that production has now wrapped.
