7500 - Official Trailer | Prime Video.
The film opens with CCTV footage of an airport in Berlin, Germany, following two individuals' progress through the airport. Next, it goes to American First Officer Tobias Ellis (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) talking to his girlfriend, one of the flight attendants, about which school their son should attend. Captain Michael Lutzmann (Carlo Kitzlinger) boards and they begin their pre-flight checks before embarking on the flight from Berlin to Paris.
Once airborne, the cockpit is entered by terrorists. Tobias manages to force the cockpit door shut but is badly wounded in his arm. Lutzmann is stabbed before Tobias can disarm the other terrorist. Tobias signals Air Traffic Control and is ordered to divert to Hannover. After knocking out the terrorist he attempts to tie the man up in the jump seat. Lutzman is unconscious, so Tobias unsuccessfully attempts CPR.
The remaining terrorists continously attempt to break into the cockpit. Tobias informs ground control of what is going on and is informed that under no circumstance is he permitted to allow the terrorists into the cockpit. Just then Tobias spots the terrorists have taken a hostage and are threatening to kill the man unless they are granted access to the cockpit. Tobias pleads with the terrorist but it proves to be in vain as the terrorist's partner proceeds to execute the hostage.
Tobias, visibly shaken attempts to render first aid to himself. The terrorists return with another hostage who is this time a member of the flight crew, Tobias's girlfriend. Tobias pleads with them to spare her and then agrees to open the door only for the hostage to tell him not to for the sake of Tobias' girlfriend and the other hostages. Tobias attempts to summon the passengers to her rescue by informing them that the terrorists are poorly armed. He also makes a connection with the youngest terrorist Vedat (Omid Memar). He pleads with Vedat to intervene but to no avail and the air hostess is killed in front of his eyes.
