Chris Hemsworth tries to rescue a young child in the middle of an outrageously violent drug war in the new trailer for Extraction, set to Premier on Netflix April 24th. Directed by Sam Hargrave, Extraction stars Hemsworth as Tyler Rake, a black market mercenary who is thrust into the middle of a stand-off between the biggest drug lord in India and the biggest drug lord in Bangladesh when he’s recruited to rescue Ovi (played by Rudhraksh Jaiswal), the Kidnapped son of one of the Kingpins. But while Rake is able to retrieve Ovi from his captors, keeping him alive proves to be a different matter entirely.
The one studio probably benefiting the most right now amid theatrical and production shutdowns is Netflix, which continues to release a surfeit of new content, both movies, and television, straight to streaming.
In terms of series, the platform’s wild documentary series “Tiger King” has taken the world by storm, the awards-ready biopic “Self Made” has burst into the Emmys race, and junk-food reality shows like “Love Is Blind” continue to captivate audiences everywhere. Now, Netflix is about to release its latest feature film, “Extraction,” dropping on the streamer April 24.
The new trailer is filled with all sorts of over-the-top action and plenty of intrigue as the boundaries between good and bad collapse – and the target on Ovi’s head grows bigger. Throughout the mayhem, the bond between Rake and Ovi grows, as the mercenary does whatever it takes to save the boy, whether that means shoving him from one roof to another or throwing himself and the kid from a moving car.
Extraction also stars David Harbour, Rudhraksh Jaiswal, Randeep Hooda, Golshifteh Farahani, Pankaj Tripathi, Priyanshu Painyuli. The film was produced by Avengers: Endgame duo Joe and Anthony Russo, while Joe Russo wrote the screenplay.
