Prepare to embark on an adventure with Sandra Bullock, Channing Tatum, and Daniel Radcliffe as they feature in The Lost City, a new action comedy that might be one of the year’s early highlights.
The Lost City appears to have all of the ingredients for a fun, unique concept idea, which Hollywood seems to be producing far too few of these days, with established IP being the favored option. But don’t take my word for it; keep reading to learn all we know about The Lost City and decide if it’s something you’ll want to see when it hits cinemas.
First and foremost, on March 25, audiences will be able to experience The Lost City only in cinemas. While big movies like The Lost City are reverting to exclusive first-runs on the big screen rather than the simultaneous releases in theatres and on streaming services that were common in 2021, we do have a pretty good idea of what the streaming situation will be for The Lost City whenever it makes its way to digital. The Lost City, as a Paramount Pictures film, is slated to premiere on the Paramount Plus streaming service roughly 30-45 days following its theatrical release, similar to how A Quiet Place Part II and Snake Eyes did.
The first trailer for The Lost City shows a lot of the shenanigans Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum’s characters are in for as they go through the jungle, as well as some amusing moments with Daniel Radcliffe and Da’Vine Joy Randolph, and a wonderful entrance by Brad Pitt’s enigmatic character.
The Lost City follows Loretta Sage, a talented but reclusive novelist who has spent her whole career penning romance-adventure novels, and Alan, her book cover model. Loretta is abducted by an eccentric millionaire who believes she can take him to the old lost city’s riches from her newest novel while on tour with Alan promoting her new book. Alan goes out to rescue her, wanting to prove that he is just as brave as the guy in the novels. Together, they must battle the forest and retrieve the ancient treasure before it is lost forever.
The Lost City features shades of Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner’s 1984 film Romancing the Stone, although the script was written by Oren Uziel, Dana Fox, Adam Nee, and Aaron Nee, based on a plot by Seth Gordon.
The Lost City is similar to the 1984 film Romancing the Stone, which followed a romance author on a mission to recover lost wealth in order to free her abducted sister. Channing told Entertainment Weekly, “They just don’t produce movies like that anymore.” “This is one of those situations where we’re trying to figure out whether we can come up with a fresh version of that genre movie. This is a one-of-a-kind, original narrative.”
With its primary trio of performers Sandra Bullock, Channing Tatum, and Daniel Radcliffe. The Lost City boasts a rather star-studded ensemble. Bullock will play Loretta Sage, a novelist. Bullock, who earned an Academy Award for her portrayal in The Blind Side, is no stranger to the action-comedy genre, having appeared in films such as Speed, Miss Congeniality, The Heat, and Ocean’s Eight.
Tatum has signed on to play Alan, the cover model who joins Bullock’s Sage on the trip. Tatum is well recognized for his work in films such as Magic Mike and 21 Jump Street. Tatum has thrived in jobs that allow him to exercise both his comedic and action muscles, and this should be another enjoyable experience for him.
Fairfax, the eccentric millionaire, will be played by Radcliffe. After leaving the wizarding franchise, the former Harry Potter star has enjoyed portraying quirky characters in films like Swiss Army Man, Horns, Miracle Workers, and others. In Now You See Me 2, he likewise plays an eccentric billionaire.
Another notable name associated with The Lost City is Brad Pitt. All we know about Pitt’s role comes from the trailer (which you can see below), in which he also tries to save Bullock’s character and looks to be a little more capable than Tatum’s cover model.
Rest of the crew – Oscar Nunez, Patti Harrison, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Raymond Lee, Thomas Forbes-Johnson, Hector Anibal, Katherine Montes and Danny Radhames Vasques Castillo
Aaron Nee and Adam Nee are the directors for The Lost City, in addition to being part of the scripting team. By likely the most important film the Brothers Nee have ever created. Previous work includes the indie films The Last Romantic and Band of Robbers, as well as TV shorts and the online series Clark Kent Has a Dream. However, because they are a part of the next Masters of the Universe film, moviegoers will see more of their work.
