Chris Hemsworth is back as Tyler Rake and kicking all kinds of butt in the new Extraction 2 first-look trailer.
Based on Ande Parks' graphic novel Ciudad, the first Extraction film came out on Netflix during the pandemic in April 2020 and followed Tyler Rake (Hemsworth), an Australian black ops mercenary who has to save a crime lord's kidnapped son. The film's screenplay was adapted by Joe Russo based on the story created by Joe and his brother Anthony Russo, along with Parks. Full of amazing cinematography — the car chase long-take is sensational — and grisly action, Extraction was a really fun action flick not named John Wick. Due to the success of the film, Netflix made the no-brainer decision to greenlight a sequel.
When is Extraction 2 coming out?
Extraction 2 is set to be released on Netflix on June 16, 2023.
Who's in it?
Chris Hemsworth returns as Tyler Rake and is joined by Golshifteh Farahani, Adam Bessa, Olga Kurylenko, and Tinatin Dalakishvill.
A new trailer for Extraction 2 — which can be seen below — has been released. More exhilarating cinematography — Greg Baldi takes over as DP after Newton Thomas Sigel served as the DP of the first film — is on full display and we get a peek at the extended long-take in a car chase that looks to heighten the one from the first film. There's another long take earlier in the trailer right before the car that takes place on a train. It's always fun to see a modern blockbuster have some personality with its cinematography.
Extraction 2 will be released on Netflix on June 16.
