Quite happy to let the completely insane experts handle this particular shot! Guess it’s obvious by now this movie’s pretty stunt-heavy. That might even be the understatement of the century. Our stunt team risked their lives and pushed their bodies to get some of these shots, and it’s truly incredible to see, truly painful to see actually! The movie wouldn’t have been possible without these guys and I’m beyond grateful ???
The video shows Chris Hemsworth’s stunt double and a foe fighting on a rooftop, before falling on the trail of a truck and landing on the ground. In fact, the stunt scene in the video is actually quite similar to the clip director Sam Hargrave posted yesterday to tease Extraction‘s imminent release. It’s quite fascinating to see both the before and after of the stunt work once it has been polished in the editing room. While the stunt work does look great, let’s hope Hemsworth’s adventure in Extraction is just as crowd-pleasing as his work in Avengers.
