The most popular movie Netflix has made, Extraction, is getting a sequel, and Chris Hemsworth will be back as Tyler Rake. The shooting is done, and the film is now in post-production.
Since over 99 million households watched the Netflix Original online, it shouldn't be a surprise that a sequel is in the works. It did better than 6 Underground, Bird Box, and Murder Mystery.
Even in the big picture of Netflix's success stories, Extraction is one of the most exciting rides ever made. The action-thriller by the Russo brothers came out at a good time when people were looking for something to watch because of the 2020 lockdown. It was instantly the most popular Netflix movie, breaking the record for the end of the year.
So, it didn't seem likely that Netflix would pass up the chance to make a follow-up. Even though the movie got mixed reviews from critics, which is expected from a simple shooter, Extraction's very stylish action scenes made people want to see more.
Extraction 2 Plot Speculation
In the plot of Extraction 2, Tyler Rake will have to get a family out of the hands of a Georgian gangster. Rake must sneak into one of the world's most dangerous prisons to save them. When the plan goes wrong, and the gangster dies in the fight, his brother, who is just as cruel, goes after Rake to get his revenge.
Netflix doesn't like to give away too much about its movies until they come out, so we don't know much about the plot of Extraction 2 until it comes out. But at the end of the first movie, Tyler Rake looked like he had been shot, so the first act of Extraction 2 will be all about finding out how he managed to stay alive.
The teaser trailer focuses a lot on the moment Rake wakes up underwater, so it's safe to assume that he gets to safety, takes care of himself, and then goes on another dangerous mission.
Extraction wouldn't be Extraction without a big, guns-blazing mission for Tyler Rake to complete, and from what I can tell, Georgian gangsters, dangerous prisons, and revenge plots sound like they will bring a lot of action.
Who Are the People in “Extraction 2”?
The movie is already being made, so we should find out more soon.
Release Date of Extraction 2
Since Extraction 2 is still in its very early stages, it's tough to guess when it will come out. Given how well it did, though, it's unlikely that its production schedule will be similar to that of the first Extraction, which, according to The Hollywood Reporter, was still in the script-writing stage in 2013.
Bright, another well-known Netflix original that came out in late December 2017, might be a better comparison. The Hollywood Reporter says that Netflix started talking about making the movie in March 2016. Will Smith and Joel Edgerton were already signed on, and David Ayer was set to direct.
Using Bright's rough timeline, we can estimate that Extraction 2 might come out on Netflix in the spring or summer of 2022. This depends on how long it takes Joe Russo to write the script and whether or not Sam Hargrave and any other stars the story needs will be happy to join the sequel.
This is a safe assumption, given the success of the first movie. All of this will, of course, be affected by the COVID-19 pandemic that is still going on. Depending on how things go in the world, this could mean that we have to wait longer for more Extraction action.
Is There a Trailer for the Movie “Extraction 2”
There isn't an official trailer yet since “Extraction 2” just started shooting in December 2021. But during the “Tulum” event in September 2021, Netflix showed a short clip from the upcoming sequel.
The teaser shows what happened to Tyler Rake at the end of the first movie. After being shot in the neck, Tyler falls into the river under the bridge. He didn't move for a few seconds while he was underwater. Suddenly, he opens his eyes, and on the screen, the word “#RakeLives” appears. You can see the sneak peek down below.
