‘The Lost City’ Trailer: Sandra Bullock & Channing Tatum Escape Daniel Radcliffe, with Brad Pitt’s Help

Paramount Pictures

Take a look at the first trailer to arrive for The Lost City, an upcoming romantic action-comedy led by Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum.

The film finds Bullock, also serving as producer here, playing a reclusive author who has made a name writing romance-adventure novels set in exotic places. She’s soon immersed in a dangerous adventure of her own when an eccentric billionaire (Daniel Radcliffe) kidnaps her in the belief that she can take him to the ancient lost city from her latest book. Setting off hoping to rescue her is Alan (Tatum), the cover model who’s long embodied her character, “Dash,” and now wants to prove that he can be a hero in real life. The unlikely pair are thrust into a jungle adventure, finding that they will have to work together if they want to survive and track down the ancient treasure before it’s lost forever.

It’s going to be tough, but lucky for them, a long-haired, handsome-as-hell badass whose father was once a weatherman is aiming to lend a hand. Let’s just hope that Brad Pitt‘s character has a more successful run than Vanisher did in Deadpool 2.

Directing brothers Adam Nee and Aaron Nee jump firmly into the big-name mainstream following comedies Band of Robbers (2015) and The Last Romantic (2006). The pair also penned the screenplay with Oren Uziel (22 Jump Street, Mortal Kombat) and Dana Fox (Cruella, Isn’t It Romantic), from a story by Horrible Bosses and Identity Thief helmer Seth Gordon.

Two charming leads, Radcliffe as the baddie, and an amusing, self-aware turn from Pitt? This old-school, Romancing the Stone-esque adventure-comedy could be a winner.

Also starring Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Oscar Nuñez, Patti Harrison, and Bowen Yang, The Lost City will open in Australian cinemas on March 24th and U.S. cinemas on March 25th.
