Netflix has just released an exclusive first look at the upcoming movie sequel Extraction 2 starring Chris Hemsworth.
The first movie was a massive success for Netflix. In only four weeks, it became the most-watched original film in Netflix’s history with a reported 99 million households streaming the movie.
No doubt having Thor (Chris Hemsworth) in the lead role helped!
The new footage for the sequel looks just as action-packed and intense as the first movie. It seems that Netflix is leaving no stone unturned in making this movie bigger and better than the last.
Extraction 2 Release Date
Netflix announced via its blog TUDUM that we can expect the sequel to drop in early 2023. Filming wrapped in March, and the movie is now in post-production.
We’ll keep this page updated when we get firm news about the Extraction 2 release date!
What’s The Plot of Extraction 2?
With the conclusion of the first filmTyler Rake (Chris Hemsworth) seemed to perish only to resurface months later at a swimming pool watching over Ovi Mahajan Jr., leaving us on something of a cliffhanger.
We can safely assume that Tyler survived the fall from the bridge and will be returning for the sequel. The new footage from Netflix also confirms this.
The plot for Extraction 2 is still being kept under wraps by Netflix, but we do have some information about the sequel. The plot will revolve around Tyler saving a family from the clutches of a Georgian gangster.
During the extraction, a gangster dies, and his vengeful brother follows Rake and his crew to Sydney to seek retribution.
Who’s In The Cast of Extraction 2?
It’s no surprise that Netflix has brought back Chris Hemsworth to reprise his role as Tyler Rake. He was one of the main reasons why the first movie was such a success!
But who else is starring in Extraction 2? Let’s take a look at the cast list:
- Chris Hemsworth (Tyler Rake)
- Golshifteh Farahani (Nik Khan)
- Adam Bessa
- Tinatin Dalakishivili (Ketevan)
- Patrick Newall
- Dato Bakhtadze (Avtandil)
Actress Rayna Campbell, who previously played a radio technician in Extraction as part of Nik’s crew, has been cast in the Ruthie role.
It’s great to see that Netflix is bringing back some of the original cast members for the sequel. Especially Adam Bessa, the young actor who made a name for himself in the brilliant war movies Mosul.
Extraction 2 is shaping up to be one of to be bigger and better than the first movie in every way. With a star-studded cast and an incredible team behind the scenes, Netflix is pulling out all the stops to make this sequel a success.
You might be familiar with the Marvel Cinematic Universe concept (MCU), where all the Marvel movies are connected and take place in the same shared universe.
However, you might not know that the movie creators, Joe and Anthony Russo, are planning a shared universe for Netflix’s Extraction.
While Joe did not provide many details in an interview with Colliderhe revealed that he and Anthony are working on expanding the Extraction universe, which may explore additional characters beyond Rake.
Russo added “we are working at building out a universe of films that could potentially explore some of the other characters from the first movie and some new characters, and see more historical interaction between the characters. So if you’re interested in David Harbor’s character, you just may get to see him in a future Extraction movie.”
It would appear that the Russo Brothers want to develop stories that focus on different countries and cultures.
This makes perfect sense as Netflix is available in over 190 countries and has a diverse range of subscribers. A shift away from American and European-based stories would be a smart move by Netflix.
So, it appears that the Extraction movie universe will be expanded in future films, which is great news for fans of the first film.
