The first official trailer for “Extraction 2” has arrived, and it promises to be just as action-packed as the original. The film stars Chris Hemsworth as Tyler Rake, a black ops mercenary once again tasked with a dangerous mission. This time, Rake must rescue the family of a notorious Georgian gangster from a heavily guarded prison.
Directed by Sam Hargrave, who also directed the first film, “Extraction 2” features a script by Joe Russo, Hemsworth’s longtime collaborator, and co-director of the “Avengers” films. The movie also sees the return of Golshifteh Farahani, who reprises her role in the original movie.
The trailer reveals a stunning set piece, where Rake and the young woman he is trying to rescue find themselves in a snowy prison courtyard that has turned into a violent riot. Rake is knocked out but manages to fight back into the action with a police shield and a flaming right arm. Hemsworth’s character is a man who refuses to die, even when the odds are against him.
While the trailer is short on plot details, fans can expect plenty of high-octane action and intense fight scenes. The film is a sequel to the first “Extraction” movie, based on the graphic novel “Ciudad” by Ande Parks, Joe Russo, and Anthony Russo, with illustrations by Fernando León González.
