EXTRACTION 2: Chris Hemsworth Promises a “Bigger & Badder” Sequel!
By: John M Jerva
It’s no secret that Extraction with Chris Hemsworth was one of the biggest hits for Netflix last year or any year for that matter. With the rousing success of the film, a sequel was almost immediately green lit and the only question was whether Hemsworth’s character of black market mercenary Tyler Rake was alive or not to warrant a proper follow up.
That question was answered with a drum rolling yes at the recent TUDUM global event as a teaser hit showing Rake come to in the water after he hit and the hashtag #RakeLives has been trending since.
With the original being such an action packed sequel, one has to wonder how the sequel will bypass the first but according to Rake himself, no worries.
While congratulating the elite stunt team of the movie for winning huge at the Taurus World Stunt Awards, Hemsworth teased a “bigger and badder sequel.” If that’s possible.
Joe Russo, who penned the original and is writing the follow up has teased a potential franchise for the Extraction property including sequels, prequels and spin-offs. All would be welcomed in my book if they’re anything like the inaugural movie.
I made Extraction my top film of 2020 and even though it was an anemic year for films because of the pandemic, I feel that it still would have been rated high if the 12 months were normal. I gave it a perfect score of 5 stars. Check out my thoughts as to why it was so special:
This is a sequel that I’m most excited for and with Hargrave returning in the director’s chair, I have good vibes on this one.
