'Extraction': Netflix drops first trailer of Chris Hemsworth's action thriller
Netflix has dropped the first official trailer of upcoming action-thriller movie Extraction. The film sees Thor star Chris Hemsworth donning the hat of a reckless mercenary who is out on the deadliest mission of his career to rescue a kidnapped boy in Asia. The movie has been produced by Russo brothers, the acclaimed directors of Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame. Here's more on this.
David Harbour, Pankaj Tripathi also star in the new film
"Tyler Rake (Chris Hemsworth) is a fearless black market mercenary who embarks on the deadliest mission of his career when he's enlisted to rescue the kidnapped son of an international crime lord," the official description of the film reads. Apart from Hemsworth, the movie also stars David Harbour, Golshifteh Farahani, and — hold your breath — Bollywood actors Pankaj Tripathi, Priyanshu Painyuli, and Randeep Hooda.
Hemsworth goes all guns blazing in the action-packed trailer
In the power-packed three-minute-long trailer, Hemsworth goes all guns blazing. He is seen punching, kicking, firing guns, and racing stolen cars as he attempts to save a young Bangladeshi boy, in backdrop of the most notorious drug lords of the Indian subcontinent. When the mission goes awry, Tyler is advised to leave the boy behind, but his bond with the kid comes in way.
But, Tripathi and Hooda get little action in the trailer
Hellboy actor David Harbour appears as an adviser of sorts, whose character, at one point suggests Tyler to "put a bullet" in the kid's brain. Meanwhile, Farahani's character is seen working on the operations end and perpetually remains in contact with Tyler. However, disappointingly, Pankaj Tripathi only gets a single shot, while Randeep Hooda merely makes a blink-and-you-miss-it appearance.
'Extraction' is out on Netflix this month
While the film's story is set in Bangladesh's capital city Dhaka, it was actually shot in Ahmedabad, Mumbai, and Thailand. Based on the graphic novel Ciudad by Ande Parks and written by Joe Russo, Extraction marks the directorial debut of legendary Hollywood stunt coordinator Sam Hargrave, who has worked on movies like Civil War and Endgame. Extraction releases on Netflix on April 24.
