The first trailer for José Padilha’s 7 Days In Entebbe – or alternatively, just Entebbe for UK audiences (we include both the U.S. and UK synopses for your reading pleasure) – is set to join the fray of the big December trailer debuts, as it has been rated today by Alberta Film Ratings.
As this is a Focus Features release (in the U.S.), we expect it to land in time to play with Paul Thomas Anderson’s Phantom Thread. As always we will bring you further updates as they come in. In the meantime, enjoy the first look image/artwork from the film, as revealed on the official UK ticket website, and the logo:
A gripping political thriller inspired by the true events of the 1976 hijacking of an Air France flight en route from Tel Aviv to Paris, the film depicts the most daring rescue mission ever attempted. 7 Days In Entebbe brings the longstanding conflict between Israel and Palestine into focus by recounting the heroic military mission while also exploring the nuanced perspectives of both sides.
Entebbe is based on the 1976 true story of four hijackers who took a plane hostage and forced it to land in Entebbe, Uganda, while they demanded the release of dozens of Palestinian terrorists. The ticking-clock thriller follows the hijackers and hostages as well as the political leaders trying to decide whether to negotiate or send an elite special forces unit on a dramatic rescue mission to free the hostages.
Starring Rosamund Pike, Daniel Brühl and Eddie Marsan, the film is released March 9 in the UK and March 16 in the U.S..
