Chris Hemsworth is back to kicking major ass on our screens, but this time he's not wielding a magical hammer or ax. The Thor actor stars in Netflix's new action-thriller Extraction, playing weathered mercenary Tyler Rake who's got nothing left to lose when a rescue mission goes awry. Sent to extract (you see what they did there?) Ovi, the kidnapped son of an imprisoned international crime lord, Tyler realizes that getting the kid is a lot easier than delivering him home safely when the city goes into lockdown and everyone attempts to keep them from escaping alive. There are lots of gunfights, fistfights, things blowing up, and at one point, Hemsworth is doing yoga in his underwear. It seems a bit alarming, but his character obviously lives for danger, so we're going with it!

The film not only stars Hemsworth but reunites the Avengers actor with several Marvel Cinematic Universe players including, former Captain America stunt double and Endgame second unit director Sam Hargrave and the Russo brothers. Extraction is the former's directorial debut while Marvel filmmakers Joe and Anthony Russo are producing the script written by Joe.

The film also stars Stranger Things' David Harbour (who we'll also see in Marvel's Black Widow), Rudhraksh Jaiswal, Randeep Hooda, Golshifteh Farahani, Pankaj Tripathi, and Priyanshu Painyuli. Watch the trailer above and check out Extraction when it begins streaming on April 24.
