Gal Gadot takes on death-defying stunts in first Heart of Stone trailer

The first trailer for Heart of Stone has finally arrived – and Netflix's upcoming espionage thriller looks action-packed.

The new clip, which premiered at the streamer's Tudum event, introduces us to Rachel Stone, played by Gal Gadot, a spy who's leading not just a double, but a triple life. By day, Rachel works in tech for MI6, hacking systems but staying out of the field. Also by day, she's an agent for the Charter, a mysterious organization committed to "keeping peace in a turbulent world." 

The Charter is able to do this with the help of the Heart, an extremely powerful piece of artificial intelligence that has the ability to "crash a market or drop a plane out of the sky" – according to the voice in the trailer, "if you own the Heart, you own the world." It's bad news, then, when a mysterious hacker, played by Alia Bhatt, seizes control of it.

It's not all AI and supercomputers, though. The trailer teases a series of jaw-dropping action scenes that include Gadot's Rachel parachuting off the side of the Alps, jumping from a moving motorcycle, and diving from an aircraft mid-flight. We also get a glimpse of one of Rachel's fellow spies at MI6, played by Jamie Dornan, her handler, played by Sophie Okonedo, and the Charter's tech whizz, played by Matthias Schweighöfer.

Heart of Stone arrives on Netflix on August 11. While we wait, fill out your watch list with our picks of the best Netflix movies that you can watch right now.
