In the second installment of the Extraction series, named Extraction 2, Chris Hemsworth’s character, Tyler Rake, is forced to confront his troubled history in order to complete what may be his most perilous assignment to date.
In Extraction, which comes out in 2020 and is based on the graphic book Ciudad by Ande Parks, Joe Russo, and Anthony Russo, Hemsworth plays a black-ops gun for hire who goes to Bangladesh on a dangerous mission to save the son of an Indian drug boss who is in jail.
Now, Hemsworth will work with director Sam Hargrave on another high-stakes rescue mission in June. From what the video shows, it looks like it’s going to be a rough fight. Get ready for more excitement, bigger stakes, and some answers about Tyler Rake’s strange past.
Hargrave started thinking about a sequel to the first movie even before it was available on Netflix. He did this after seeing how excited people were about the first movie at an early showing. “Those early reactions were so good that they changed how the first movie ended,” he told Netflix.
Hemsworth is back as the Australian black-ops gun for hire Tyler Rake. After barely escaping the events of the first movie, he is given another dangerous mission: to get the beaten family of a cruel Georgian gangster out of jail.
“Chris gives this character so much of himself that Tyler Rake wouldn’t exist without him,” Hargrave told Netflix. “He was the source of a lot of the information in the story. At the end of the first movie, Rake dies for this child. At least, that’s what he thinks. But after he is brought back to life, he has a crisis of being. The whole point of this movie is to answer the question, “Why am I here?” I think Tyler’s answer and peace come from knowing that he’s meant to help people, no matter how bloody or hard that might be.
