The Sequel of the Netflix Hit
When it comes to movies with explosive popularity, it is always exciting to hear the news about sequels of the story. Chris Hemsworth made over 90 million viewers that watched Extraction in the first month after its release. The actor revealed the continuation of the story of Tyler Rake to millions of fans. Let us remind you of the plot of the 2020 sensation.
The story revolves around a professional special forces soldier Tyler Rake. After the tragedy with his daughter, he decided to retire. Now he deals with high-paying and dangerous orders. Among them is the evacuation of a kidnapped child, Ovi, the son of an international criminal. The boy appears to be a pawn in the war of two drug lords. The catch is that he is held hostage in the city of Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, which is known to be one of the most inaccessible places in the world.
This movie gained enormous popularity and was considered to be one of the most successful projects on the streaming platform in 2020. No wonder that the announcement of Extraction 2 is a pleasant surprise for the fans.
So, What Is Extraction 2 About?
In the first film, Rake seemed to die during his mission. Netflix did not provide any information about the plot of the new movie. However, we can assume that he will somehow stay alive. Or maybe we could have a chance to see the backstory to the first Extraction?
The director of the hit movie said he was excited about making a prequel, although he did not hint whether the plot will move forwards or backward. At the same time, we can see in the teaser that Extraction 2 will be actually a continuation of the previous story. The most we can do is to speculate, make suggestions, and just live our lives in thrilling anticipation of a new outstanding piece.
Revealing the Extraction 2 Cast
The cast is what can make the movie exceptional. It can also be something that can spoil its reputation, even with the most exciting plot. In the case of the first film, Extraction, the actors turned the movie into a hit through their outstanding play and deep emotions translated to the viewers.
Chris Hemsworth played the main character, Tyler Rake, in the first movie. For many viewers, the participation of such a renowned actor was an indicator of a potentially successful piece.
Most of us know Hemsworth as Thor from the Marvel movies, but there are even more famous films he starred in. He gained extraordinary popularity and became one of the highest-paid actors thanks to his fruitful work in well-known movies. Among them is the legendary science fiction action piece Star Trek (2009), the thriller A Perfect Getaway (2009), the fantasy movie based on a famous Brothers Grimm story Snow White and the Huntsman (2012), Red Dawn (2012), Blackhat (2015), the comedy Ghostbusters (2006), the renowned science fiction movie Men in Black: International (2019), etc.
Besides Hemsworth, a range of other talented actors performed their roles excellently:
- Rudhraksh Jaiswal as Ovi, the son of Indian crime lord;
- Indian actor Pankaj Tripathi as Ovi Mahajan Sr., father of Ovi;
- Indian actor Randeep Hooda as Saju Rav;
- Iranian actress Golshifteh Farahani as Nik Khan, Tyler’s partner;
- American actor David Harbour (also known for his role in Stranger Things as Jim Hopper) as Gaspar, etc.
Currently, the whole cast for the next film is unknown. The fans will surely see Hemsworth in Extraction 2, as well, but it is unclear whether the rest of the actors will continue to mesmerize with their act on the screens. The fate of the respective characters also remains secret, and we cannot predict whether they will appear in the next movie.
As for the director and the writer, Sam Hargrave and Joe Russo will return in Extraction 2 on their positions. However, Hargrave noted that he might not direct all the movies from this series. He said it would be nice to give other brilliant young directors to try their hands in filmmaking in the context of this story and to see what their creative minds will reveal in future movies. But for Extraction 2, Hargrave will still remain a director.
Excited About the Upcoming Movie?
We cannot foresee the plot of the new movie with all its twists, as well as the characters that will come in the story, but we can surely predict it will be breathtaking, stirring, and brilliant. The filmmaking team demonstrated their strengths in the first film, and we can expect the same outcomes of their works in the upcoming piece.
We are all waiting for the continuation of the story loved by millions of people. In 2022, we will most likely immerse ourselves into the fiction world with a dramatic plot and talented actors that will make our hearts tremble.
