Amazon Prime Video recently released the trailer for a nerve-wrecking airplane hijacking film, 7500, slated for a June 19 premiere.
The trailer kicks off with pilots and crew following methodical protocols for a regular take-off, without a slightest worry in the world.
Things take a drastic downturn when a group of men start attacking passengers on-board and demand to take control in the cockpit.
The official synopsis reads:
“It looks like a routine day at work for Tobias, a soft-spoken young American co-pilot on a flight from Berlin to Paris as he runs through the preflight checklist with Michael, the pilot, and chats with Gökce, his flight-attendant girlfriend. But shortly after takeoff, terrorists armed with makeshift knives suddenly storm the cockpit, seriously wounding Michael and slashing Tobias’ arm.
“Temporarily managing to fend off the attackers, a terrified Tobias contacts ground control to plan an emergency landing. But when the hijackers kill a passenger and threaten to murder more innocent people if he doesn’t let them back into the cockpit, this ordinary man faces an excruciating test.”
Directed by debutant German director Patrick Vollrath, 7500 features Gordon-Levitt, Omid Memar, Aylin Tezel, Carlo Kitzlinger, Murathan Muslu, and Paul Wollin.
The narration for the gruelling thriller is a combined effort of Vollrath and Senad Halibasic.
