A shocking act of terrorism leads to one of the most daring hostage rescue missions ever attempted in 7 Days in Entebbe, a riveting thriller inspired by true events. In the summer of 1976, an Air France jet traveling from Tel Aviv to Paris is takenover in midair by four hijackers; two Palestinians and two left-wing German radicals. When the plane is diverted to an abandoned terminal at Entebbe Airport in Uganda, the terrified passengers become bargaining chips in a deadly political standoff. As the likelihood of finding a diplomatic solution fades, the Israeli government sets in motion an extraordinary plan to free the prisoners before time runs out. Combining vivid historical details with pulse-quickening suspense, 7 Days in Entebbe is a powerful depiction of an international crisis that stunned the world.
Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner produced the film alongside Kate Solomon. José Padilha is known for directing 2014’s RoboCop, episodes of the TV series Narcos, and Elite Squad: The Enemy Within.
7 Days in Entebbe will be released on March 16, 2018 in the U.S. Were you aware of the story of the Entebbe hijacking? Let us know in the comments.
