Chris Hemsworth teases that Tyler Rake's Extraction story might not be over just yet.
The new Chris Hemsworth movie on Netflix, the action-thriller Extraction, is setting records for the streaming company. It's on pace to become the most-watched Netflix movie of all time over its first four weeks. Hemsworth has now responded to the huge success of the film and commented about the possibility of a prequel or a sequel coming sometime down the road.
"I just want to say a massive thank you to everyone who checked out Extraction," Hemsworth said in a post on Instagram (via Collider). "You've made it the number one film on the planet right now, and it looks like it’s going to be Netflix's biggest feature film of all time, which is absolutely mind-blowing."

According to Netflix, some 90 million households watched Extraction over its first four weeks. Even if Netflix's reporting methods are a bit wacky, it's still a record for the company, outpacing the number of views of Tiger King and everything else on the platform over its first month.
Extraction was directed by Sam Hargrave, a stunt coordinator on Avengers: Endgame, who made his directorial debut with the film. The movie was co-written by Avengers: Endgame director Joe Russo. He and his brother Anthony also produced Extraction.
Hemsworth also spoke about the possibility of another Extraction movie. He teased, "There's been a lot of talk and questions about sequels and prequels and all sorts of things, and all I can say is who knows. But with this amount of support, it's something I will be pretty stoked to jump back into."
The final frame of Extraction offers a very strong tease that the story could continue with a sequel. A prequel could also be interesting approach, to help viewers find out more about Hemsworth's character, Tyler Rake, who suffered a horrible loss that is only referenced in the movie but never fully explored.
Extraction is available to stream now on Netflix.
