“Extraction 2” Trailer Finds Chris Hemsworth’s Tyler Rake Back From the Dead
There was never really a question of whether Tyler Rake (Chris Hemsworth) was going to survive his seemingly fatal fall at the end of Extraction—the question was, and remains, what his survival would mean for his future. In the official trailer for Extraction 2, this question is posed to Rake as he reappears on the scene in a hail of gunfire, doing his level best to get a family out of the crosshairs of some seriously sinister individuals. The film finds Hemsworth and director Sam Hargrave returning to double down on the epic action they ginned up in the original. Also back is Hemsworth’s longtime collaborator Joe Russo (you know him, he co-directed a few little Avengers films), who wrote the script. Rake is back, and he’s got some new people to protect, although the reasons for his survival remain opaque.
The trailer offers a few thrilling set pieces, including an epic fight on a train and some very nifty combat skills—you’ll note Rake’s cleverness when it comes to setting up booby traps. Rake’s got a new mission. somehow more dangerous than the last; rescue the family of a notorious Georgian gangster. As we learned in the original Extraction, as ruthless and skilled as he is, Rake has a heart. He will go above and beyond his job duties; the man’s a mercenary, after all, to save the lives of the people put in his charge. That very often means risking his own against insane odds.
Hemsworth is joined by Golshifteh Farahani (reprising her role from the original film), Adam Bessa, Olga Kurylenko, Daniel Bernhardt, and Tinatin Dalakishvili.
