While the end of the first film didn’t really indicate a sequel, it looks like Chris Hemsworth is back in the role of black ops mercenary Tyler Rake for Extraction 2. Netflix has now released the first official Extraction 2 trailer to give us a good idea of what to expect from the action film, which is directed by Sam Hargrave and produced by Marvel heavy-hitters Anthony and Joe Russo.

After being presumed dead at the conclusion of Extraction, Rake returns for another mission that’s mostly just another excuse for Netflix to get Hemsworth to chew through various action sequences like beating prisoners down with riot shields, beating people up with burning fists and deflecting Molotov cocktails. Yes, the Extraction 2 trailer is nothing if not ridiculous.

Considering Hargrave cut his teeth as a stunt coordinator for Avengers: End Game and Avengers: Infinity War, Extraction 2 mostly looks like a good two-or-so hours spent watching things blow up while Hemsworth muscles his way through another linear hero-villain story to rescue the battered family of a “ruthless Georgian gangster.”

Hemsworth will star alongside Golshifteh Farahani, Adam Bessa, Daniel Bernhardt and Tinatin Dalakishvili while Joe Russo takes care of the script with his brother Anthony, lifting inspiration from the graphic novel Ciudad that the Russo Brothers produced alongside Ande Parks.

The middling action flick was at least a very fun watch when Extraction dropped on Netflix in 2020. And while it fell victim to the usual action tropes, the project is still one of Netflix’s most successful movies with 231 million hours viewed within the film’s first 28 days on the streaming service.

Extraction 2 drops on Netflix Australia on June 16.
