Entebbe (aka 7 Days in Entebbe) recounts the 1976 Israeli rescue mission, which saw two German and two Palestinian terrorists hijack Air France Flight 139 en route from Tel Aviv to Paris. Passengers and crew were held hostage at Entebbe in Uganda. When all diplomatic efforts failed, the Israeli government decided not to negotiate and approved a counter-terrorist hostage rescue operation by Israeli Defense Force commandos. 

The film, which stars Rosamund Pike and Daniel Bruhl, premiered at the 2018 edition of the Berlinale.

To achieve a documentary-like feel, director Jose Padilha, insisted that real sets were built to avoid the overuse of visual effects. Malta stood in for Israel and Uganda, with a physical replica of the entire Entebbe airport terminal built for the shoot.
