Rosamund Pike Stars in Thriller 7 DAYS IN ENTEBBE



Gregory Burke ('71) wrote the picture, which stars Daniel Brühl, Rosamund Pike, Eddie Marsan, Ben Schnetzer, Lior Ashkenazi, and Denis Ménochet.

In 1976, two Palestinians and two Germans hijacked an Air France flight on its way from Tel Aviv to Paris, diverting it to Entebbe Airport in Uganda. The militants threatened to kill passengers unless Palestinian and other prisoners held in Israel and elsewhere were released. Working Title's Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner produced along with Kate Solomon, Ron Halpern, and Michelle Wright. But his work helming episodes of Netflix's Narcos, along with his action movie Elite Squad: The Enemy Within, proves that Padilha's definitely got some game. That mission, Operation Entebbe, was successfully carried out a week after the hijacking took place.

RAID ON ENTEBBE (1976) starred Peter Finch, Charles Bronson, Yaphet Kotto and was directed by Irvin Kershner (THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK). The TV movie Victory At Entebbe starred Kirk Douglas and Burt Lancaster at ABC in the same year.

Focus Features will release 7 Days in Entebbe on March 16, 2018. Let us know in the comments. What did you think of the trailer?
