First, push down on the trunk lid to be sure it is completely latched. Then try the release in the glove box. If it doesn't release, get a pair of needlenose vise grips and pull the cable instead of using the release handle.

If that doesn't help, you'll have to cut the hood handle off. The procedure is described in the Bentley manual.
