People Are Calling Out Chris Hemsworth's New Movie For Using A "Yellow Filter" To Depict Bangladesh

"The only thing that needs to be extracted is that yellow filter."

Earlier this week, the trailer for Chris Hemsworth's new movie Extraction was released.

The trailer shows the intense camerawork it takes to film the action movie. The top half shows behind-the-scenes filming, while the bottom half shows what the actual movie looks like. The film takes place in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

It's clear a yellowish filter was used in the final cut of the movie.

People were quick to call out the yellow filter used to portray Dhaka and explain why it's problematic.

@NetflixFilm Why does Hollywood think every foreign country is yellow

@scorpsmoon @NetflixFilm Filter Type: Developing Country

People on YouTube also noticed the filter.

People explained this is often how a lot of foreign countries are depicted in American movies.

@Mrblue1_ @NetflixFilm It is called the Mexican filter.

@Devon_OnEarth @NetflixFilm They do that to warm countries, and they put a sorta blue or cool filter on countries in like europe

@NetflixFilm We don’t want your white saviour film no thank you
