Those in the U.K. will have a chance to see The Lost City of Z a few weeks before it comes to the U.S., and a new trailer and poster have been unveiled ahead of its release. Based on the book by David Grann, the film is directed by James Gray and stars Charlie Hunnam as British explorer Percy Fawcett.
The film also stars Robert Pattinson, Sienna Miller, and Tom Holland. The Lost City of Z opens in the U.K. on March 24th before hitting U.S. theaters on April 14th.
Based on author David Grann’s nonfiction bestseller, THE LOST CITY OF Z tells the incredible true story of British explorer Percy Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam), who journeys into the Amazon at the dawn of the 20th century and discovers evidence of a previously unknown, advanced civilization that may have once inhabited the region. Despite being ridiculed by the scientific establishment who regard indigenous populations as “savages,” the determined Fawcett – supported by his devoted wife (Sienna Miller), son (Tom Holland) and aide-de-camp (Robert Pattinson) – returns time and again to his beloved jungle in an attempt to prove his case, culminating in his mysterious disappearance in 1925. An epically scaled tale of courage and obsession, told in James Gray’s classic filmmaking style, THE LOST CITY OF Z is a stirring tribute to the exploratory spirit and those individuals driven to achieve greatness at any cost.
