7500 is a new thriller coming to Amazon Prime on June 19th. It stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a pilot trying to keep a plane of passengers safe from a group of terrorists. Also starring in the film are Omid Memar, Murathan Muslu, and Aylin Tezel. The film is written and directed by Patrick Vollrath. Apparently, the distress code for a plane in this kind of trouble is 7500, hence the title of the film. You can check out the trailer, synopsis, and poster for the movie down below.
"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. 7500 stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Omid Memar, Murathan Muslu, and Aylin Tezel and is written and directed by Patrick Vollrath."
I haven't seen this film, so I cannot speak to its quality, but Levitt is talented enough to keep it entertaining. Movies like 7500 have come before, and this won't be the last. Hopefully, this one is not just a paint by numbers type thriller and one we can get excited about. The film will go live to watch on the Amazon Prime Video service on June 19th, which is next Friday.
