Extraction, starring Chis Hemsworth and David Harbour, will debut on Netflix on April 24th, and two new images from the film debuted online today. In the film, "Hemsworth stars as the black-market mercenary Tyler Rake, a gun-for-hire who finds himself paid to rescue the son of an international crime lord. The mission takes him to Bangladesh to rescue the kid (played by Rudhraksh Jaiswal), but a closeness between the two of them develops as Rake sees a possible path to redemption." The Extraction script is written by Joe Russo, no stranger to working with Hemsworth, and directed by Sam Hargrave, second unit director on some MCU films. Extraction marks his directorial debut.
Hemsworth had this to say about working with the first time director, as well as what he had to go through physically for the role:
"He had as many scrapes, bumps and injuries as the rest of us. Like most stunt guys, there's a couple of screws loose maybe but the guy's infectious to be around … You're talking about doing a stunt and it looks a little hairy, and he all of a sudden demonstrates and throws himself off the hill or into the wall and you're like, 'OK, I guess I can't not show up now.'
It awakened the young teenager in me again. Not to say I'm pushing my limits or I'm over the hill in any way, but you notice through the years things like, 'Ooooh, there's a little hitch in my knee that wasn't there before.' Or a tweak in my shoulder I didn't notice. But I felt like it re-energized me. It was a kick in the (butt) to say, 'Come on, there's still plenty more in the tank."
Look for Extraction when it debuts on Netflix on April 24, starring Chris Hemsworth, David Harbour, and Rudhraksh Jaiswal.
