EXTRACTION: A New Featurette Sheds Light on the Action Film’s 12 Minute Epic Chase Scene!

By: John M Jerva

When the trailer for Netflix’s newest action flick Extraction starring Chris Hemsworth hit it immediately shot up to my must see list as the action from director and stunt master Sam Hargrave looks epic.

Now a new featurette sheds light on one of the film’s many action set pieces which is a soon to be classic chase scene that is shot in one take which is one of my favorites in the genre. The style of scene that is shot with no edits is called a oner and it has become more successful in the last few years. The scene runs an impressive 12 minutes so my interest has peaked even more for the thriller. Take a look at the behind the scenes goodness below!

Official Synopsis: Extraction (formerly known as Dhaka) takes place in an underworld of weapons dealers and traffickers, and follows a young boy becomes the pawn in a war between notorious drug lords. After being trapped by kidnappers inside one of the world’s most impenetrable cities, his rescue beckons the unparalleled skill of a mercenary named Tyler Rake. But Rake is a broken man with nothing to lose, harboring a death wish that makes an already deadly mission near impossible.

Hargrave and Hemsworth on set

Hemsworth stars along with David Harbour (Stranger Things, Black Widow), Derek Luke (13 Reasons Why), Fay Masterson (Vice), Golshifteh Farahani (Paterson) and newcomer Rudhraksh Jaiswal. The Russo Brothers produced under their AGBO banner. Stunt pro Sam Hargrave who choreographed the action for Atomic Blonde helms with Hemsworth also serving as producer.

Audiences will definitely get to see the film on April 24th as it is set to hit Netflix worldwide so by all means, watch Hemsworth go full on Rambo in the new featurette below!
