Netflix TUDUM: Hemsworth returning for 'Extraction 2'; first look from many films and show unveiled
''Extraction 2'', ''Red Notice'', ''The Witcher'', ''The Crown'', season two of ''Bridgerton'', ''The Sandman'' were some of the titles that streamer Netflix teased during its global fan event TUDUM on Saturday.
During the three-hour-long virtual event, the streamer went all out as it provided teasers, trailers, first looks and exclusive footage from close to 100 shows and series.
''This film is a throwback to the epic adventure films we all grew up loving, and it is absolutely massive,'' Johnson said.
''Red Notice'' is slated for release on November 12.
He shared an extension of the climax of ''Extraction'' that saw Rake falling in a river after getting shot. The new footage shows the character swimming to safety after gaining consciousness.
''Yes, Tyler Rake is alive and well and ready to take on his next mission. If you thought our first film pushed the limits, just wait to see what Sam and I have planned for this next instalment.
''When we first decided to make 'Army of the Dead', we had talked about like, 'oh, it would be cool to do a prequel or spin-off with one of the characters from the film.' I was like maybe we could do like an Italian Job-style movie tracing the origins of this character,'' he said. Matthias Schweighofer has directed the movie in which he reprises his role of Ludwig Dieter from ''Army of the Dead''. The movie will release on October 29. Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence and filmmaker Adam McKay gave an exclusive look into their upcoming movie, ''Don't Look Up''.
Idris Elba gave a glimpse into his upcoming movie ''Harder They Fall'', while Charlize Theron discussed her 2020 hit ''The Old Guard'' during a panel discussion with Regina King, Zazie Beetz, Nathalie Emmanuel, Elsa Pataky and Noomi Rapace.
On the series front, first looks from critically-acclaimed and smash-hit series like ''Bridgerton'', ''Money Heist'', ''Ozark'', ''Stranger Things 4'', ''The Witcher'' and its much-awaited prequel ''The Witcher: Blood Origin'' were released.
Henry Cavill provided two short clips from the upcoming second season of ''The Witcher''.
Created by Lauren Schmidt Hissrich, the show is based on the book series by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski. It tells the adventures of monster hunter Geralt of Rivia and his run-ins with enemies and deadly creatures.
After the short clip was aired, Hissrich announced that ''The Witcher'' has been greenlit for season three. The spotlight on smash-hit series ''Money Heist'' was led by its lead star Alvaro Morte.
''My friends and I are humbled by the love given to La Casa de Papel. It's been such a great ride. ''We are so grateful to our fans who have been supporting the show since 2017... We couldn't be happier that you love the show as much as we do,'' Morte, who plays the fan-favourite The Professor in the series, said.
The fifth and final season of the popular Spanish series has been divided into two parts of five episodes each. While the first five episodes started streaming from September 3, the remainder will debut after December 3.
The streamer announced that Asa Butterfield and Emma Mackey-starrer show ''Sex Education'' has been renewed for season four.
Celebrated author Neil Gaiman provided the first look at ''The Sandman'', the series adaptation of his classic comic book.
''Adapting 'The Sandman' for this series has been a labour of love. I've been working with the team at Netflix since day one with the goal of shaping a story that's authentic to what makes it 'The Sandman' story that people love, while also giving us a wider perspective on this world than ever,'' Gaiman, who serves as executive producer, said.
''I will do my utmost to maintain the very high standard that they (Olivia Colman and Claire Foy) have set. Hopefully, I'll look calm, collected and capable. We look forward to bringing you the next season of 'The Crown' in November 2022,'' she said.
