The first trailer has arrived for the film, which has Hemsworth playing a troubled badass mercenary that’s hired to rescue the kidnapped son of an imprisoned crime lord. And yeah, things go boom after that.
It’s a pretty exciting trailer, showing off what looks like seriously impressive action; some of those big stunts and nifty camera work bring to mind some of the craziness from the Raid films. It’s cool to have Hemsworth sticking with his Aussie accent, too. This marks the feature directorial debut for Sam Hargrave, who’s worked as a fight/stunt coordinator on a number of big films, including the Russos’ Infinity War and Endgame.
Also starring Rudraksh Jaiswal, David Harbour, Pankaj Tripathi, Randeep Hooda, and Derek Luke, among others, Extraction will be exploding onto Netflix on April 24.
