CHRIS Hemsworth has taken to his Instagram account to thank fans for responding to his latest film, the Netflix action-thriller Extraction, in their droves.

The response has been so overwhelming that he has even hinted at the possibility of a sequel featuring his mercenary character.

The film, from director Sam Hargrave and producers the Russo brothers, sees Thor-star Hemsworth playing Tyler Rake, who embarks on a dangerous mission to rescue the kidnapped son of an imprisoned crime lord.

It debuted on Netflix at the end of April (2020) and immediately attracted a wide viewership, with “an estimated 90 million households in the first four weeks” of its release, according to a previous post on Hemsworth’s Instagram account.

Addressing his followers from a gym location among weights and equipment, Hemsworth said: “Hey, what’s up guys, I hope you’re doing well. I just want to say a massive thank you to everyone who checked out Extraction, 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.

“We are blown away by the response and the support. On behalf of myself, the Russo Brothers, Netflix, our director Sam Hargrave, thank you so, so much. We love you guys.”

Later in the video message, Hemsworth went on to address rumors of a sequel to Extraction, suggesting he was more than keen to reprise his role should the opportunity arise.

“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,” he continued. “But with this amount of support, it’s something I will be pretty stoked to jump back into.”
