2. Heart of Stone (Netflix)
Gal Gadot is taking action to new heights this summer. In a new trailer for Heart of Stone, introduced by the cast at the Tudum: Global Fan Event in Brazil, you can see the star and producer parachuting off a snowy cliff and fighting thousands of feet up in the air. The film is all set to release on Netflix on August 11, 2023.
Gadot stars opposite Dornan as MI6 agent Parker and Alia Bhatt as hacker Keya Dhawan. The cast also includes Sophie Okonedo, Army of the Dead’s Matthias Schweighöfer, Jing Lusi and Paul Ready. The trailer of the film showcases many stunning destinations where it has been shot. According to reports, many sequences have been shot in London, South Tyrol, and Iceland.
A few glimpses that have caught our eyes have Gadot flying off of a snow-capped mountain. She has been seen taking off in the sky and riding a bike in a few exotic locations. From the trailer, it looks like Alia Bhatt is not the protagonist. She will be playing the villain who would steal a man-made heart that could drive cartographies around the globe.
