American action thriller film "Extraction" will be released on April 24 by Netflix.

Hollywood actor Chris Hemsworth starred in the movie, which was earlier titled "Dhaka."

Written by Joe Russo, the film is the directorial debut of stunt coordinator Sam Hargrave, who has worked on several films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Hemsworth, who has played Marvel's resident thunder god in three "Thor" solo films and four "Avengers" movies, stars as Tyler Rake, a black-market mercenary hired to rescue the kidnapped son (Rudhraksh Jaiswal) of an international crime lord, reports USA Today.

Rake ventures to Dhaka, capital of Bangladesh, to extract the kid, and over the course of the mission, closeness develops and Rake discovers a path of redemption.

"You've got a guy who has a dark past and has done some very violent things as a way to make a living," Hargrave, the director, said.   

"The interesting thing about (Hemsworth's) character isn't his physical bravery but his emotional cowardice," he said.

Rake's charge "awakens something within him that he's buried and pushed aside for many years" after the tragic loss of his own son, Hemsworth said.  

"He's come to terms with the fact that his number could be up any second. The innocence and purity from this young kid reminds him that there's still more to do on Earth before he departs."

Filmed in India and Thailand, "Extraction" marks the directorial debut of Hargrave, who worked with Hemsworth as a stunt coordinator and second unit director on "Avengers: Infinity War" and "Endgame." Hargrave was also Chris Evans' Captain America stunt double in several Marvel projects.

Making the new movie, Hargrave often would grab a handheld camera and strap himself to the hood of a moving car or get on a wire and jump across buildings for the perfect shot: "I got the best of both worlds."
