Chris Hemsworth fans, rejoice! Our favorite actor is flying to Manila this June and we’ll finally be breathing the same air!
Netflix revealed on Thursday (May 18, 2023) that Chris, who returns as Tyler Rake in EXTRACTION 2, and Director Sam Hargrave will be visiting the country for the APAC red carpet premiere of the highly anticipated action and adventure sequel on the streaming platform.
In the video, Chris teased fans about his visit. “I’ll be flying to Manila this June for the premiere of EXTRACTION 2 where I play Tyler Rake. I don’t want you to miss out so please come join me. It’ll be fun.” The blockbuster actor shared his excitement, adding, “Can’t wait to see you all there soon. Take care.”
