The Lost City of Z movie is written and directed by James Gray, based on the 2009, The lost city of Z book by David Grann. The story claims to cover real events from the life of British explorer Percy Fawcett who was sent to Bolivia and later made several attempts to find an ancient lost city in the Amazon and disappeared in 1925 along with his son on an expedition. The film distributed by Amazon Studio and Bleecker Street stars Charlie Hunnam as Fawcett along with Robert Pattinson as his fellow explorer Henry Costin and Sienna Miller as his wife.
The Lost City of Z trailer looks promising as the throwback to the spirit of cinema past: an epic, wandering, sometimes ponderous adventure through an unknown landscape riddled with unwelcome dangers and unexpected treasures of the Amazon. The trailer looks grand and the imagery is soothing, a return to the Amazonian dramas with green and wild backgrounds, puffed up men in khakis and damsels in distress.
The movie which was released in April in United States and overseas will come to the silver screen tomorrow in India. See you in the nearest theatre if adventure and exploring amidst the dense, untouched of Amazon catches your fancy.
