Heart of Stone’s first trailer has finally arrived, and the upcoming espionage thriller on Netflix certainly looks action-packed.
Gal Gadot’s espionage character Rachel Stone is introduced in the new trailer, which made its debut at the banner’s Tudum celebration. Rachel Stone leads not just a double life, but also three. By day, Rachel works for MI6 in technology, hacking networks while avoiding danger. She works throughout the day as an agent for the Charter, a mysterious organisation committed to “keeping peace in an unstable world.”
The Heart, a highly effective expert system that can “crash a market or drop an aircraft out of the sky,” as stated by the narrator in the video, “if you own the Heart, you own the world,” gives the Charter the capacity to achieve this. When a weird hacker, played by Alia Bhatt, seizes control of it, it’s bad news.
AI and supercomputers aren’t everything. The teaser teases a succession of breath-taking action sequences, including Gadot’s Rachel leaping off a moving bike and a plane in mid-flight, as well as Rachel parachuting from the side of the Alps. We also get a glimpse of one of Rachel’s MI6 coworkers, played by Jamie Dornan, her handler, Sophie Okonedo, and the tech wiz of the Charter, Matthias Schweighöfer.
On August 11, Heart of Stone will be available on Netflix. While we wait, finish your watch list with our picks for the finest Netflix films available right now.
