The Trailer

The official trailer for Heart of Stone has not been released yet. The First Look video was released at TUDUM and featured Gal talking about the film while epic action scenes from the movie played. “Heart of Stone is going to be extremely epic,” Gal said. “It’s a super grounded, raw action thriller.”

Her co-star Alia Bhatt said, “It has these characters that you really connect with and feel for.” Star Jamie Dornan said, “There’s so much going on and it’s so big scale.” Gal explained that they wanted to keep the film “realistic, so people can feel the pain.” She also said that her character, Rachel Stone, “lives off the adrenaline. She’s addicted to it.”

The official synopsis for Heart of Stone, courtesy of Netflix, reads, “Rachel Stone (Gal Gadot) is an intelligence operative, the only woman who stands between her powerful, global, peace-keeping organization and the loss of its most valuable — and dangerous — asset.”

Netflix executive Ori Marmur told Variety how Heart of Stone will compare to other epic spy movie franchises. “One of the things that got us really excited was the idea of doing a film in a genre that’s often dominated by men. It’s Mission: Impossible. It’s Bourne. Those movies always have men at the center of them,” she said. “This has two strong women in Gal Gadot and Alia Bhatt who are in the middle of things. Along with Jamie Dornan they form a central trio.”
