Extraction Draws Biggest Ever Opening for Netflix

Extraction Draws Biggest Opening for Netflix

Make way for the new champ! Extraction is set to become Netflix’s biggest film premiere to date, knocking off previous champ, Michael Bay’s 6 Underground. Star Chris Hemsworth shared the good news via Twitter and stated that a projected 90 million households had tuned in to the violent (but awesome) action thriller. Check out the full tweet below!

“Tyler Rake is kicking ass. Extraction is well on its way to becoming the biggest-ever film premiere on Netflix — with a projected 90 million households getting in on the action in the first 4 weeks. Thanks to everyone who watched so far,” the actor wrote.

Previously, 6 Underground held the record with 83 million people tuning in to watch at least two minutes of the film in its first four weeks. No data is given on how many people actually finished these movies in their entirety — but why linger on trivial details?

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.
