Hijacking Poster

The released poster captures the tense appearance of flight engineer Tae-in (Ha Jung-woo) and Captain Gyu-sik (Sung Dong-il) hanging upside down in a 180-degree-flipped airplane. The upside-down passenger plane and the expressions of the two people in the cockpit are not only eye-catching, but also suggest that something ominous has happened.

In the situation where the passenger plane has been hijacked, the appearance of flight engineer Tae-in (Ha Jung-woo) not letting go of the joystick in order to land safely makes one feel the moment of absolute desperation. In particular, the appearance of Yong-dae (Yeo Jin Goo) desperately rushing towards the cockpit in the chaotic airplane is a powerful face that is etched in the memory, causing extreme tension and stimulating curiosity about why he is in this situation.

The appearance of Captain Gyu-sik (Sung Dong-il) bleeding next to Tae-in and looking at Yong-dae with anxious eyes adds to the tension of the people who are in a desperate situation with nowhere to run. The caption “In the winter of 1971, this passenger plane was hijacked” raises questions about how the hijacking will unfold and what choices the people involved in the incident will make.

Hijacking Trailer: Heart-Pounding Tension Takes Flight

Hijacking Trailer Heart Pounding Tension Takes Flight

The released first trailer shows flight engineer Tae-in staring straight ahead with an unshakeable gaze, even in the tense moment of shouting “Escape,” creating a heart-pounding tension. The scene of the plane shaking and exploding as the safety announcement is made, and the incident being rewound, is interesting.
The determined appearance of Yong-dae pulling the safety pin of a plastic explosive and shouting “From now on, this plane is going north” leads the audience into extreme suspense. Tae-in, Gyu-sik, flight attendant Ok soon (Chae Soo-bin), and passenger Yong-dae, who has a different destination, all do their best in their places to save the hijacked plane. The intense suspense of these people who risk their lives on this flight unfolds.

In addition, the scene of Tae-in desperately controlling the plane even in an unstable situation and the scene of the plane rushing rapidly as if it will crash into the mountain at any moment provide a thrilling cinematic experience. The imminent situation of “5 seconds before crossing the truce line” and the breathtaking aerial chase in the air give the audience a strong sense of immersion and raise expectations for “Hijacking,” the first batter to capture the box office with genre pleasure among the movies to be released this summer.

Hijacking” is expected to deliver a powerful cinematic experience by realistically conveying the imminent situation of a passenger plane hijacked in the skies over South Korea in 1971 and the tension caused by the limited space where there is no escape. In addition, the unique synergy created by the performances of trusted and respected actors Ha Jung-woo, Yeo Jin-gu, Sung Dong-il, and Chae Soo-bin will capture the hearts of moviegoers this summer.
