Whilst we wait patiently for this week’s first UK film festival of 2018, the Glasgow Film Festival, Berlin has kicked off. One of the films premiering is Entebbe (aka 7 Days In Entebbe), the latest film from Narcos director José Padilha.
The movie stars Rosamund Pike and Daniel Brühl and based on the true events of a hijacked plane forced to land in Entebbe, Uganda. The year was 1976 when 4 hijackers demand the freedom of Palestinian prisoners.
Ahead of today’s world premiere, Entertainment One has released a new Poster which has our two main protagonists taking centre stage.
From the director of Narcos, 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.
Entebbe now has the confirmed UK and Irish release date, of 6th April 2018. The movie also stars Eddie Marsan, Ben Schnetzer, Lior Ashkenazi, and Denis Ménochet.
