The first trailer was released Thursday for the upcoming movie “7 Days in Entebbe.”

The plot of the film, according to the YouTube description, is, “A gripping thriller inspired by the true events of the 1976 hijacking of an Air France flight en route from Tel Aviv to Paris, the film depicts the most daring rescue mission ever attempted.”

The Entebbe raid is one of the most famous moments in military history in the past 100 years. It was also the place that current Israeli prime minister Bibi Netanyahu’s brother Yonatan was killed as part of the rescue team.

Judging from the trailer, this movie is going to be awesome. Of course, it shouldn’t be hard to write an awesome movie script for this story. The details of the Entebbe Raid are almost to unbelievable for real life. Israeli commandos invaded Uganda, bang it out at an airport and rescue dozens of hostages. It doesn’t get much crazier than that.

The movie is currently scheduled to be released March 16.
