Chris Hemsworth’s Netflix film Extraction was very well-received. However, a low-budget remake of the Extraction trailer has impressed everyone right from Chris to the Russo Brothers to Sam Hargrave as well as Netflix. Made by a group of young Nigerian filmmakers known as Ikorodu Bois, the video is a DIY version that stars children who use makeshift guns made of soda cans and employ other household items like brooms and toy cars and is a scene-by-scene reenactment of the trailer.

Sharing a side-by-side video on Twitter, the Ikorodu Bois wrote, “We so much love this movie and we hope @chrishemsworth and @netflix sees this remake, pls retweet.” The tweet went viral and received over 70,000 retweets and close to 2,00,000 ‘likes’, and got Chris’ attention as well who posted it on his official Instagram. He captioned the trailer, “Repost! huge shout out to these amazing young film makers @ikorodu_bois for recreating @extraction trailer shot for shot! I think your version might be better than the original !! @netflixfilm.”
