The video features a commercial plane as it makes an emergency landing on an island after being hit by lightning.

Now, it’s up to the pilot and a convict to save them before it’s too late.

“In the white-knuckle action movie Plane, pilot Brodie Torrance saves his passengers from a lightning strike by making a risky landing on a war-torn island — only to find that surviving the landing was just the beginning,” reads the synopsis. “When most of the passengers are taken hostage by dangerous rebels, the only person Torrance can count on for help is Louis Gaspare, an accused murderer who was being transported by the FBI. In order to rescue the passengers, Torrance will need Gaspare’s help, and will learn there’s more to Gaspare than meets the eye.”
Plane is produced by Butler, Alan Siegel, Luillo Ruiz, Marc Butan, Lorenzo di Bonaventura, and Mark Vahradian. Executive producers are Michael Cho, Tim Lee, Gary Raskin, Alastair Burlingame, and Vicki Dee Rock. It is a co-production between Lionsgate and Pimienta Films, with Olivia Hill Media and Paprika Financing set to co-finance the project.
