Chris Hemsworth is Back as Tyler Rake in Thrilling “Extraction 2” Trailer

The only thing more dangerous than an angry Tyler Rake (Chris Hemsworth)? An angry Tyler Rake with a flaming right fist. This is one of the things you’ll learn in the first official trailer for Extraction 2, which finds Hemsworth and director Sam Hargrave returning to double down on the epic action they ginned up in the original. Hemsworth’s longtime collaborator Joe Russo (you know him, he co-directed a few little Avengers films) wrote the script, which finds Hemsworth’s mercenary back from the dead after his bloody, brutal rescue mission from the original film.

The trailer reveals a single, stunning set piece. Rake is trying to get a young woman out of a very dangerous situation. They’re in a snowy prison courtyard that’s turned into a riot, and things go from bad to worse when Rake is brained over the head and apparently out of the fight. Yet, he fought back from being essentially dead at the end of the last film for a reason, and he manages to find his purpose, a police shield and that flaming right arm in an incredible sequence that caps the trailer. This is a man who doesn’t say die, even when, by all accounts, he should be long gone.

The trailer is short on plot details, but we know Rake’s got a new mission—rescue the family of a notorious Georgian gangster—or die trying. Hemsworth is joined by Golshifteh Farahani (reprising her role from the original film), alongside Adam Bessa, Olga Kurylenko, Daniel Bernhardt, and Tinatin Dalakishvili.
