“Tyler Rake kicks her ass. The extraction is well on its way to becoming the greatest movie premiere ever on Netflix. 90 million households are expected to participate in the first four weeks. Thank you to everyone who has watched so far. “ The actor wrote.
Before, 6 underground held the record with 83 million viewers who watched at least two minutes of the film in the first four weeks. No data is given on how many people have actually completed these films – but why should they limit themselves to trivial details?
extraction (formerly titled as Dhaka) takes place in an underworld of arms dealers and traffickers and follows a boy who becomes a farmer in a war between notorious drug lords. After being captured by kidnappers in one of the most impenetrable cities in the world, his rescue lures the unprecedented ability of a mercenary named Tyler Rake. But Rake is a broken man who has nothing to lose and has a death wish that makes an already deadly mission almost impossible.
The cast includes Chris Hemsworth (Thor: Ragnarok), David Harbor (Strange things, Black widow), Derek Luke (13 reasons why), Fay Masterson (Vice), Golshifteh Farahani (Paterson) and newcomer Rudhraksh Jaiswal. The film is produced by Netflix. Joe Russo wrote the script, while Sam Hargrave is known for his stunt work in several MCU films and for small roles in action films Atomic blondewill make his directorial debut with the film.
