Despite some Covid-related filming issues, it looks like Extraction 2 isn’t far from release. Although the first film was a big hit when it was released on Netflix, it wasn’t beyond criticism. The action sequences and performances received praise, while the screenplay failed to wow critics. Most reviewers found the plot a little flimsy and thought it was the bare minimum to string together the setpieces and stunts. Let’s hope that the second part improves on the formula a bit.

A few noteworthy people are working behind the scenes. The film is directed by Sam Hargrave, while the Russo brothers wrote the script. Chris Hemsworth plays Tyler Rake, a black ops mercenary who was presumed dead at the end of the first entry in the series. The teaser shows a few flashbacks to the events of Extraction, while Tyler Rake fights his way out of the center of some kind of prison break. He gets hit in the back of the head with a brick at one point, and the narrator explains that he was essentially too angry to die. He had unfinished business. That’s more or less all we get, although it’s also clear that he’s rescuing an unnamed woman.

Aside from Extraction 2, the Russo brothers also intend to set up some kind of cinematic universe surrounding the series. But for now, you can watch the trailer for Extraction 2 below:
