Netflix unveiled a behind-the-scenes video that spotlights a long take in Chris Hemsworth’s Extraction.
After working together on Marvel Studios’ last two Avengers films, Chris Hemsworth and the Russo Brothers re-teamed for a new film titled Extraction. Produced by Hemsworth and the Russo Brothers, with Joe Russo having penned the screenplay, the film is scheduled to debut on Netflix later this month.
Now, Netflix has released a behind-the-scenes video that spotlights how the creative team on Extraction delivered a nearly 12-minute-long action shot. As explained in the video, the “oner” consists of a series of long shots that are “joined together seamlessly to form a single continuous shot.”
Check out the post from Chris Hemsworth below to watch the video and get a preview of the action sequence.
By far the most complicated action sequence I’ve ever been part of, and if it wasn’t already complex enough, our director decided to shoot it as a “oner” — almost 12 minutes long and it’s about as exhausting to watch as it was to film. Strap in folks! pic.twitter.com/zQZtzm7tRW
