A first trailer for Michelle Dockery's thriller Flight Risk has been released, which sees the Downton Abbey star involved in an adrenaline-filled ride.

Dockery features opposite Uncharted's Mark Wahlberg and That '70s Show's Topher Grace in the movie written by Jared Rosenberg and directed by Mel Gibson.

Coming to UK cinemas this October, Flight Risk gives one of its twists away in the trailer, with the clip introducing viewers to FBI agent Madelyn Harris, who's tasked with bringing informant Winston (Grace) to trial. Wahlberg plays the sketchy pilot who's flying them across Alaska, though his relaxed demeanour may conceal something sinister.

The clip reveals that Wahlberg's character Daryl Booth has been hired to shut Winston's mouth before he could tell the authorities what he knows.

When they realise Daryl must've got rid of the actual pilot, Winston and Madelyn know they'll have to cooperate to fly the plane and make it out alive.

The official synopsis promises Flight Risk to be a "high-stakes suspense thriller", teasing a twisty denouement for the three characters involved.

"Academy Award nominee Mark Wahlberg plays a pilot transporting an Air Marshal (Michelle Dockery) accompanying a fugitive (Topher Grace) to trial," the logline reads.

"As they cross the Alaskan wilderness, tensions soar and trust is tested, as not everyone on board is who they seem."

Flight Risk is released in UK cinemas on October 18.
