Four armed people hijacked an airplane filled with passengers in the summer of 1976. Thus begins 7 Days in Entebbe, inspired by true events, which tells the story from the perspective of the hijackers, the passengers and the Israeli government, which sent soldiers on a daring rescue mission.
In our exclusive clip from early in the film, the plane stops to refuel in Libya before proceeding to Uganda. A hijacker (Daniel Brühl) accompanies the plane’s flight engineer (Denis Ménochet), who pleads in behalf of the passengers.
Watch the tense clip below. Then get tickets to 7 Days in Entebbe, also starring Rosamund Pike and Eddie Marsan; it’s now playing in theaters nationwide.
