Here’s what Hargrave had to say about it: “To me, the image of Chris Hemsworth beating up a group of prisoners, as it burns in the snow It was something I couldn’t let go. And kudos to Chris: he had to do it over and over again. I don’t know many people, let alone Hollywood celebrities, who will let you set them on fire while you’re on camera.”

As explained by the specialized media MovieIt wasn’t Hemsworth’s entire body or anything, but the dangers were very present. “If the wind is blowing the wrong way, the money maker is here,” joked Hargrave. “We had a bunch of different jackets lined up for him.with different layers. But we turned on Chris Hemsworth and he beat up a bunch of guys all night long. He was pretty amazing to watch.”

Screenplay by a Russian

Joe Russo wrote the screenplay for the sequel to the 2020 hit, and he did so with the intention of surpassing what had come before. The massive 20-minute action sequence that Hemsworth set himself on fire for has been described as “the craziest in the history of cinema” in the script. Since the first film already had a pretty crazy one-shot action sequence, this was no easy task.

Now there

Now the “Thor” actor must rescue the abused family of a ruthless Georgian gangster from prison.

“It’s a crazy company,” Hargrave explained Empire. “It travels miles of land during the sequence and many minutes of time. it is very ambitious“. While the director admitted he didn’t make it in one take (which would be logistically impossible), he said it will be presented as a long sequence with natural breakpoints.

“We built a few junctions where we were able to generate the sequential effect of shots. But in those broken pieces there are still sequences that last anywhere from 30 seconds to a minute and a half. Sometimes there are 50, 60, 75 moves in a row.” He said it was shot at night with dozens of specialists. And in the middle of winter. “Chris had red ears and nose because he was freezing.”

Director Hargrave, the same as the first one, said "We got Chris turned on and he was banging on a bunch of guys all night long. It was really amazing to watch."
