It’s been way too long since we’ve had a good Romancing the Stone/Jewel of the Nile-style romantic adventure. Fortunately, The Lost City is bringing that missed genre back, with Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum as the couple swinging through one wild jungle adventure. Following yesterday’s first-look images, the full trailer has been release and it looks like a blast.
Directed by Adam and Aaron Nee (Band of Robbers) from a story by Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses), the film stars Bullock as a reclusive romance writer who gets swept up in a kidnapping plot along with her cover model, played by Tatum. The two end up in a crazy jungle adventure where life is stranger and more romantic than fiction.
“I don’t know if it’s because we’ve all been locked in our homes for so long, but if you can just sit in a room with someone and it’s quiet and just for no reason start laughing, and you know why the other one is laughing but you don’t know why the other one is laughing, it just makes things so much easier,” Bullock told EW.
“So yeah, I think we were separated at birth at some point in some sort of neurological experiment on brain development. And he and I feel that theory holds because no matter where you throw us, we’re still the same.” Tatum adds, “By the way, we should just make this movie. Maybe we will one day.”
The cast also includes Daniel Radcliffe as an eccentric billionaire, and Brad Pitt in a cameo.
Paramount Pictures will release The Lost City into theaters on March 25th 2022.
