With just days until the film officially hits Netflix, Extraction 2 star Chris Hemsworth has shared a new clip from the movie that sees his character Tyler Rake in a 1 vs. 1 battle against… a helicopter.
Set to release on Friday, June 16, Extraction 2 is a sequel to the 2020 film Extraction, which became one of the biggest Netflix films of all time when it was released.

In addition to Hemsworth as Tyler Rake, Extraction 2 stars Golshifteh Farahani, Adam Bessa, Olga Kurylenko, Daniel Bernhardt, Tinatin Dalakishvili, and the recently-introduced Idris Elba, who has a mysterious role that’s set to expand the Extraction universe.
Speaking to BroBible’s Post-Credit Podcast, director Sam Hargrave said that getting Elba to join the film was as simple as getting Hemsworth to make a phone call.
“They go way back and have worked together. And they’ve wanted to do things together outside of that universe. So, when we were trying to expand [the Extraction] franchise, Chris made a phone call and said ‘Hey, would you want to come play?’ And he graciously said yes. And there you go,” Hargrave said.
Luckily for fans, if Extraction 2 performs up to Netflix’s mysterious metric-based standards, a third film in the franchise — which Hargrave says they’re already cooking up — seems like it’s virtually guaranteed.
“Fingers crossed, if people enjoy the second one, there already is — and this is without spoiling anything — but there is a story in development for a third movie in the works. What it is exactly, I can’t say right now, but I believe there is another adventure in the wind for Tyler Rake,” Hargrave told us.
