Extraction 2 Stunt Has ‘Different Energy’ Than Marvel | Popgen Tech


Chris Hemsworth’s next foray into the world of blockbusters is in the Netflix film sequel Extractiona film that Hemsworth says features some stunts that are more enjoyable than his work in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly recently, Hemsworth talked about the upcoming film’s massive action scene, and praised the work he and director Sam Hargrave — who worked as a stunt coordinator in the past — did. According to Hemsworth, the stunts were incredibly fun — even more so than the work he’s done in the Marvel movies, because of how realistic they are.

“There’s something delightful about that,” Hemsworth said. “Not to take anything away from the special effects-filled Marvel kind of movie, but you have a lot of help in post-production there. Obviously, I can’t fly, so they help me with that. Whereas in this movie, the action is grounded in reality, and so much of it is on camera. So, it’s a different energy, and the preparation is more extensive.

Acquisition 2 is directed by Sam Hargrave from a screenplay written by returning scribe Joe Russo. Like the 2020 film, it is also being produced by Avengers: Endgame directors Anthony and Joe Russo through their AGBO banner along with Hemsworth.

It will feature the return of Chris Hemsworth as skilled black-ops mercenary Tyler Rake, who viewers last saw with a gunshot wound to his neck. It remains to be seen how the sequel will address his survival following his near-fatal injury.

The original film took place in an underworld of arms dealers and traffickers and followed a boy who becomes a pawn in a war between notorious drug lords. It was received positively, with critics praising its action sequences. In its first month of release, it was Netflix’s most-watched movie, watched in 90 million households.

Extraction also starring David Harbor (Stranger Things, Black Widow), Derek Luke (13 Reasons Why), Fay Masterson (vice)Golshifteh Farahani (Paterson), and newcomer Rudhraksh Jaiswal.
