Take a look at the trailer that’s arrived for 7500, a tense-looking thriller heading to Amazon Prime.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays a young American co-pilot who’s in for a horror flight from Berlin to Paris. Not long after takeoff, terrorists attack, threatening to kill passengers unless he lets them inside the locked cockpit. And then they kill the first…
It certainly looks like a nail-biter. Gordon-Levitt will essentially be carrying this film as it takes place solely from the cockpit – which could make this another great one-location thriller to add to a list that includes films like Buried, Phone Booth, etc. We’ll see. Side note: Paul Dano was once circling the lead role before Gordon-Levitt signed up.
This German-Austrian-USA production is directed and co-written by Patrick Vollrath, making his feature debut following a number of short films. 7500 hits Amazon Prime Video on June 19.
Official synopsis for 7500:
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.
