Focus Features has released the first trailer for 7 Days in Entebbe, the political thriller directed by Brazilian filmmaker José Padillha (RobocopNarcosElite Squad) based around the 1976 highjacking of an Air France flight from Tel Aviv to Paris that was forced to land in Uganda

The events were previously depicted in the 1977 TV-movie Raid on Entebbe, but it also played a key role in the Idi Amin movie The Last King of Scotland, for which Forest Whitaker won an Oscar for playing Amin.

The script is written by Greg Burke (’71), and it stars Daniel Brühl (Captain America: Civil War), Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl), Eddie Marsan, Ben Schnetzer, Lior Ashkenazi and Denis Ménochet.

Focus will open the movie in select cities on March 16.
