Extraction 2 cast list, reviews, plot, trailer, and news

Here's all we know about the Extraction 2 release date and the cast list for Chris Hemsworth's new Netflix movie, featuring the return of action man Tyler Rake.

When is the Extraction 2 release date? We all know Chris Hemsworth as Thor, but the megastar has his own burgeoning franchise to fall back on if they ever stop making Marvel flicks. Back in 2020, he teamed with Netflix to bring us Extraction, and the action-packed movie is now back with a sequel.

Extraction was a big hit for the streaming service at the time of its release as one of the best action movies of year when viewers were crying out for straightforward, hard-hitting fun. Extraction brought the joy of a blockbuster to the small screen, so it should come as no surprise that a second adventure has arrived, despite the apparent death of Tyler Rake.

It’s great to see Hemsworth back in action once again in the sequel to one of the best Netflix movies around. So, we’ve extracted the Extraction 2 release date, while also gathering the news, reviews, and cast list of the Chris Hemsworth movie.

Chris Hemsworth returned to lead the Extraction 2 cast as the hero Tyler Rake. In addition to this, there are also plenty of new faces in the sequel, most notably, Idris Elba.

What is Extraction 2 about?

The Extraction 2 plot sees Tyler Rake tasked with extracting a family from the clutches of a Georgian gangster.

Rake must infiltrate one of the world’s deadliest prisons in order to save them, but when the extraction goes south and the gangster dies in the heat of battle, his equally ruthless brother tracks down Rake in order to get revenge.

Of course, it wouldn’t be Extraction without a big, guns-blazing mission for Tyler Rake to complete, and the end of the second movie definitely leaves scope for a third. For a rundown of where Extraction 2 left off, you can take a look at our Extraction 3 release date guide.
