Extraction 2: Release date, trailer, cast, plot & more
Here’s everything we know about Extraction 2, the return of Chris Hemsworth’s Tyler Rake, from its release date and trailer to cast, plot, and more.
We all know Chris Hemsworth as the mighty God of Thunder, Thor, but 2020 action bonanza Extraction was his fiercest role yet.
Based on the graphic novel by Ande Parks, Extraction’s pulse-pounding set-pieces surprised Netflix viewers, seeing the movie become the streaming platform’s most-watched original film.
Director Sam Hargrave has been hard at work bringing a sequel to life, so we’ve broken down everything you need to know about Extraction 2, including cast information, plot, and trailer details.
Extraction 2 release date: When is it coming out?
Extraction 2 will premiere on Netflix on June 16, 2023.
The Sam Hargrave-directed sequel began production in November 2021 in Prague, Czech Republic.
Filming wrapped in April 2022, though additional reshoots took place in November 2022. Speaking with Collider, producer Joe Russo explained: “It’s very different from ‘Extraction 1’, which we like. It’s its own movie in that regard. It has a different color schematic. It’s set in a different part of the world. It has a different pace, a different tone than the first one.”
Russo added that “we’re really excited about it, and we think it was beautifully shot. Hemsworth’s fantastic in it. And we’re excited to share it with audiences.”
Extraction 2 trailer: Is there a trailer?
A new trailer for Extraction 2 dropped on April 3, 2023. Check it out below:
The new trailer shows Hemsworth’s hero breaking a woman out of a snowy prison during a violent, explosive riot. At one point, he’s hit with a Molotov – but he just keeps punching guys in the face with his flaming fist.
According to Hargrave, Hemsworth actually allowed himself to be set on fire in aid of crafting “the craziest oner in cinema history.”
“For me, the image of Chris Hemsworth beating the shit out of a bunch of prisoners, while on fire, in the snow was something that I couldn’t pass up,” the director told Empire.
“And hats off to Chris. It wasn’t CG fire. And he had to do it over and over… I don’t know a lot of people, let alone Hollywood A-listers, who are gonna let you light them on fire while on camera.”
Another trailer is due to drop on May 16, 2023, so we’ll share it in this space once it’s online. You can check out some new posters below:
You can watch the first teaser for Extraction 2 below:
The teaser trailer picks up immediately from the first movie’s ending, with Hemsworth’s Tyler Rake falling off a bridge into a river in Dhaka after (seemingly) being shot fatally in the neck.
“Tyler, you drown not by falling into the river but by staying submerged in it,’ Ovi (Rudhraksh Jaiswal) says in a voiceover, before Tyler’s eyes open and he swims to the surface.
Netflix also unveiled new footage from the movie as part of its 2023 slate trailer, which you can watch below:
Extraction 2: Which cast members are returning?
It was confirmed by Netflix that Chris Hemsworth and Golshifteh Farahani would return as Tyler Rake and Nik Khan respectively.
Fans of the John Wick and Matrix franchises can also expect 87/North collaborator Daniel Bernhardt to appear in the movie.
Extraction 2: What will it be about?
The official synopsis for the movie reads: “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.”
According to Netflix, Extraction 2 features an array of “mind-blowing” stunt work, keeping in line with the first entry.
Though Tyler Rake was presumed as KIA in Extraction, Hemsworth will have a score to settle in the sequel.
