Chris Hemsworth Thanks Fans As ‘Extraction’ Breaks Netflix Records

Is Tyler Rake Netflix's John Wick?

So, is Chris Hemsworth’s merc-for-hire Tyler Rake the next John Wick? Netflix certainly think so, and it seems they’ve got the numbers to back it up. The streamer’s projections are that Extraction, the action flick produced by the Russo Brothers and directed by Sam Hargrave, will be viewed in 90 million households over 4 weeks, making it the biggest ever in their history.

Hemsworth has now reached out to fans through social media to thank them for Extraction‘s success…

For context, last year’s most-watched Netflix movie was Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston comedy Murder Mystery with 73 million views in the first four weeks.

From the beginning, Extraction looked like the start of a potential blockbuster franchise for Netflix, which is something they’ve been lacking. While the movie ended ambiguously, these numbers are going to have Netflix, the Russos, Hemsworth, and Hargrave doing whatever it takes to get a sequel going, and quickly.
