Chris Hemsworth was Overwhelmed by the Action in Extraction



Chris Hemsworth was overwhelmed by the action in Extraction

We’re just a few days away from the debut of Netflix’s action drama Extraction, starring Chris Hemsworth as a bad ass mercenary who finds himself fighting for his life when a mission involving a young boy goes to Hell. As it turns out, the wild action as seen in the trailers was enough to exhaust even the mighty Hemsworth, who was a tad overwhelmed by the action put forth by director Sam Hargrave.

“That was a big reason for doing the film,” Hemsworth told Entertainment Weekly. “The way Sam wanted to shoot, with a lot of continuous takes and minimal editing, meant there weren’t moments where a stunt guy could jump in, so it was nice to step up to that challenge. I’d never experienced this amount of action before. It was exhausting, but one of the most rewarding things I’ve been a part of, because at the end of it I felt like we’d run a marathon.”

Hargrave agreed and added, “In my opinion, Chris has never been pushed. He has a lot of physical ability, and I’ve seen flashes of brilliance in the Thor movies, so I wanted to test him. I still don’t think we got to his full potential, but we pushed him further than he’s ever been — and it really shows on screen.”

In other words: get ready to see some next-level action when the film hits Netflix on April 24th.

Extraction (formerly titled as Dhaka) takes place in an underworld of weapons dealers and traffickers and follows a young boy who becomes the pawn in a war between notorious drug lords. After being trapped by kidnappers inside one of the world’s most impenetrable cities, his rescue beckons the unparalleled skill of a mercenary named Tyler Rake. But Rake is a broken man with nothing to lose, harboring a death wish that makes an already deadly mission near impossible.

The cast includes Chris Hemsworth (Thor: Ragnarok), David Harbour (Stranger Things, Black Widow), Derek Luke (13 Reasons Why), Fay Masterson (Vice), Golshifteh Farahani (Paterson) and newcomer Rudhraksh Jaiswal. The film is being produced by Netflix. Joe Russo has written the script while Sam Hargrave, known for his stunt work in multiple MCU movies as well as small roles in action films such as Atomic Blonde, will be making his directorial debut with the film.

Extraction is produced by Avengers: Endgame directors Anthony and Joe Russo through their AGBO banner along with Hemsworth, Mike Larocca, and Eric Gitter.
