Try pulling on the cable with pliers and once you get the hood open adjust the cable or latch or replace the whole cable before you get locked out of your engine compartment.

I tried that already, didn't work

Try with a long screwdriver or prybar - FROM UNDER THE FRONT BUMPER. Don't force anything, just press on the latch...
