Tyler Rake (Chris Hemsworth) is back and he’s in protector mode! The first looks at extraction 2 already caused huge hype from audiences when their favorite actor swapped his superhero hammer for action hero guns. The upcoming feature film will continue the story of the former Australian SAS operator-turned-black-ops mercenary after his near-death experience as he rescues another child. As the film’s release neared, the lead actor took to Twitter to share a new look at the film.
The new clip shows Rake and the team on a train after rescuing the child from enemies. As the gunships come their way, the team prepares for battle as we see Rake grab the largest possible cannon and aim it at the helicopter that’s behind them. Then we see him single-handedly crashing the helicopter. The action quotient of the upcoming film is outstanding and follows in the footsteps of its predecessor – the stunts and thrills will take things to a whole new level, including a 21-minute film that was announced with the film’s first trailer.
In the original film, Tyler Rake was used as a mercenary with extraction specialists who would do anything to complete the mission. After losing his own child to leukemia, he has a soft spot for children that puts him in protector mode when their safety is threatened. In the upcoming feature film, Tyler Rake will return after a close encounter with Death to rescue a Georgian gangster’s family from the prison they are being held in. The excitement about this blew fans away in the first trailer.
director Sam Hargrave and writers Joe Russo felt that telling Rake’s story after his near-death experience would be an “effective way” to continue his story. Hargrave previously told Collider of the continuation of Rake’s story: “Now, if we take a step back, you’re rehashing the similar things from his past, aren’t you? It’s hard to be more emotionally charged and at stake than when your son is dying of cancer or leukemia, isn’t it?” And this time, Rake faces a worthy new enemy Idris Elbawho is currently cast in an undisclosed role.
In addition to Hemsworth and Elba, there was also the cast of the film Goldshifteh Farahani as Nick Kahn Adam Besa as Yaz Kahn, Olga Kurylenko as Mia, Tinatin Dalakishvili as Ketevan, Andro Jafaridze as Sandro, along with Miriam And Marta Kovziashvili as Nina and more.
