Chris Hemsworth is currently in Europe for the shooting of his new film, ‘Extraction 2’. On Monday, Hemsworth gave a little glimpse of the behind-the-scenes footage to all his fans. The Australian actor showed how he was able to perform one of the “greatest and most difficult stunt ever captured on film”.
In the video, Chris can be seen warming up with a few leaps, shaking his hands, and loosening his shoulders. He then performs his “stunt” which turns out to be more of a party trick, in which, he dashed up to a wardrobe assistant and jumped into a jacket.
“Probably the greatest and most difficult stunt ever captured on film Extraction2 @netflix @samhargrave @agbofilms,” he jokingly captioned his video.
Chris Hemsworth wanted to shoot the film in Harbour City
Hemsworth revealed in December that he wished he was still filming Down Under. The highly anticipated sequel, which became Netflix’s most-streamed original film upon its premiere, was meant to be shot in Sydney, but producers chose to shift to the Czech Republic in August.
The Covid-19 lockdowns in New South Wales and the risk of the set being shut down due to a virus epidemic were evidently reasons of concern at the time.
During his interview, Hemsworth said on the Today show: “Initially this film was supposed to shoot in Sydney, but it was tricky with the lockdowns and so on, and then so we made the move to Prague.”
He further added, “But yeah, Covid cases are pretty rampant here and so it’s… we’re now thinking, you know, maybe it was better to stay [in Australia] but it wasn’t my choice”.
