Gal Gadot-starrer Heart of Stone, which marks Alia Bhatt’s Hollywood debut, will premiere on August 11, 2023. Directed by Tom Harper, the movie also stars Jamie Dornan, Sophie Okonedo and Matthias Schweighofer. It follows Rachel Stone (Gadot), an intelligence operative and the only woman who stands between her powerful, global, peace-keeping organisation and the loss of its most valuable — and dangerous — asset.
Extraction 2, which brings back Hemsworth as Tyler Rake from 2020 hit Extraction, will debut on Netflix on June 16. Anthony and Joe Russo have produced the sequel, which is directed by Sam Hargrave. The movie will see Rake taking on another deadly mission: rescuing the battered family of a ruthless Georgian gangster from the prison where they are being held.
Set for release on March 13, Murder Mystery 2 is a follow-up to Sandler and Aniston's 2019 movie Murder Mystery. It will see Nick (Sandler) and Audrey Spitz (Aniston) find themselves at the centre of an international abduction when their friend, the Maharaja is kidnapped at his own lavish wedding.

It chronicles the story of a peaceful colony on the edge of the galaxy that is threatened by the armies of a tyrannical regent named Balisarius. Desperate, the civilians dispatch a young woman (played by Boutella), who has a mysterious past, to seek out warriors from nearby planets to help them challenge the regent.
Before Rebel Moon, Fincher's The Killer will make its debut on the platform.
