The Lost City Movie: Was the Lost City a Flop?
The adventure rom-com with Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum The Lost City is now in theatres in the US. The UK release date for The Lost City is coming up fast, and Paramount Pictures has just put out an exciting new featurette that gives fans their first look at how much fun they can expect.
The writer Loretta Sage (Bullock) and her cover model Alan (Tatum) find themselves in the middle of a plan to kidnap a billionaire named Fairfax (Daniel Radcliffe) in the jungle.
The last featurette was about Sandra Bullock’s jumpsuit, and this one is about how Channing Tatum became the cover model Dash.
The actor makes jokes in Becoming Dash: “I was a little worried about the whole wig thing. I wasn’t ready for what it would do to me, especially on a spiritual level.
Just like someone had stuck suction cups to my head, and then Dash was there… I kind of lost consciousness. In reality, the wig is in charge. It plays a game with you, and you’re just a pawn.”
The Lost City Release Date
First of all, The Lost City will only be shown in theatres in the US and a few other countries on March 25 according to radiotimes.com/. Movie fans in the UK will have to wait until April 15 to see it. Even though Paramount just announced that some fans will be able to see the adventure movie before it comes out.
On Tuesday, March 22, and Wednesday, March 23, some theatres will show special screenings called “The Lost City: Girls Night Out” and “The Lost City Date Night,” respectively.
Check the websites of your local movie theatres or sites like Fandango to find out if and where these special showings are happening in your area. The Lost City will also be shown early in some theatres on Thursday, March 24.
As for when The Lost City might be available to stream, we have an idea of how that might go. The Lost City is a Paramount Pictures movie, so it should be available on the Paramount Plus streaming service about 30–45 days after it comes out, just like A Quiet Place Part II and Snake Eyes.
The Plot of the Lost City
In The Lost City, the main characters are the brilliant but shy author Loretta Sage, who has spent her whole life writing romance-adventure books, and Alan, who is always on the cover of her books.
Loretta is taken hostage by a strange billionaire while she and Alan are on tour to promote Loretta’s new book. The billionaire hopes that Loretta can lead him to the treasure from the ancient lost city in Loretta’s latest story.
Alan goes to find her because he wants to show that he is just as brave as the character in the books. Together, they must brave the jungle and find the ancient treasure before it is lost for good.
The Lost City is similar to the 1984 movie Romancing the Stone, which starred Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner. However, the original screenplay was written by Oren Uziel, Dana Fox, Adam Nee, and Aaron Nee, based on a story by Seth Gordon.
A Cast of “the Lost City”
The main three actors in The Lost City—Sandra Bullock, Channing Tatum, and Daniel Radcliffe—are all pretty famous.
Bullock will play the writer Loretta Sage in the movie. Bullock won an Oscar for her role in The Blind Side, but she has also been in movies like Speed, Miss Congeniality, The Heat, and Ocean’s Eight, which are all action comedies.
Tatum is set to play Alan, the cover model who goes on an adventure with Bullock’s character, Sage. Tatum is most well-known for his parts in movies like Magic Mike and 21 Jump Street.
Tatum has done well in roles that let him show off his comedy and action skills, and this should give him another chance to do so.
Radcliffe has been chosen to play Fairfax, a billionaire who is a bit strange. Since leaving the Harry Potter franchise, the actor who played Harry Potter has had a lot of fun playing weird characters. For example, in Swiss Army Man,
Horns, Miracle Workers, and other movies, he played some of the most bizarre characters ever. In the movie Now You See Me 2, he also played a strange billionaire.
Brad Pitt is another famous person who is involved with The Lost City. The trailer (which you can watch below) tells us everything we need to know about Pitt’s character. He also tries to save Bullock’s character, but he seems a bit more capable than Tatum’s cover model.
Additional Patti Harrison (Together Together, Raya and the Last Dragon), Oscar Nunez (The Office), Da’Vine Joy Randolph (Only Murders in the Building), and Bowen Yang are all part of the cast of The Lost City (Saturday Night Live).
Was The Lost City a failure?
The movie had its South by Southwest premiere on March 12, 2022, and Paramount Pictures distributed it in theatres in the US on March 25, 2022. It earned generally favorable reviews from reviewers and made $190 million worldwide on a $68 million budget.
Trailer for The Lost City
The first trailer for The Lost City is out, and it shows that Bullock and Tatum’s characters are going to have a rough time as they travel through the jungle. The clip also shows a great entrance by Brad Pitt’s mysterious character and a scene where Bullock pulls leeches off Tatum’s derriere.
