Netflix Original movie sequel Extraction 2
In 2020, the world met Tyler Rake (Chris Hemsworth), a black market mercenary seemingly with no fear. The first Netflix movie Extraction became the streaming channel’s most successful Original movie to date. More than 99 million households streamed the movie, leading it to outshine the likes of 6 Underground, Bird Box and Murder Mystery. It is thus no real surprise that a sequel is in the works, with filming to start soon.
As with the first movie, the Netflix Original movie Extraction 2 will again be directed by Sam Hargrave. The Russo brothers also return as executive producers on the project. However, this time around, only Joe Russo is credited for writing the movie script.
What is the plot of the Original movie?
In the first movie, a black market mercenary was hired to rescue the kidnapped son of an imprisoned international crime lord. However, in the dark underworld of drug traffickers and weapons deals, what is already a deadly mission turns impossible.
In the sequel, Extraction 2, Tyler Rake (Chris Hemsworth) has barely survived his grievous wounds from the Dhaka, Bangladesh mission, but his team is ready for their next mission. This time around, Tyler is tasked with extracting a family that is at the mercy of a Georgian gangster. Our fearless mercenary infiltrates one of the world’s deadliest prisons in order to save the family.
However, when the extraction gets too hot and the gangster dies in the battle, his equally ruthless brother tracks down Tyler and his team to Sydney, Australia, in order to get revenge.
