No cinemas? No problem. A-listers Hugh Jackman, Chris Hemsworth star in new films on TV

The timing couldn’t be better for these two actors.

Big-screen movie stars Chris Hemsworth and Hugh Jackman are headlining new films scheduled to be out this week on Netflix and HBO respectively.

Extraction

​​​​​In this action flick, Hemsworth – most famous for playing hammer-wielding god Thor in the Marvel films – stars as a black market mercenary who’s hired to rescue the kidnapped son of an imprisoned drug lord.

Needless to say, the mission is anything but simple and it gets more and more complicated by the minute.

Directed by Sam Hargrave (stunt coordinator on many big films including Avengers: Endgame and Avengers: Infinity War), the action feature – which was shot in Thailand, India and Bangladesh – is produced by Joe and Anthony Russo (directors of Avengers films), as well as Hemsworth.

Extraction premieres on Netflix on April 24.

Bad Education

Based on true events, Bad Education follows Frank Tassone (Jackman) a district superintendent in New York, that turned one high school into a top-achieving public school

Naturally, this earns him the respect of teachers and parents.

But all that comes crashing when a student exposes an embezzlement scheme that threatens to destroy everything he has built.

Co-starring Allison Janney and Ray Romano.

Bad Education premieres on April 26, at 8am, with an encore on the same day at 10pm, on HBO.
