One More Short Trailer for James Gray's Adventure 'The Lost City of Z'
"Our reputation rests on my success… You and I are explorers now." Another trailer for this epic adventure film before it hits theaters next month. The Lost City of Z tells the true story of a British explorer who travels to the Amazon in South America in search of a rumored city of gold hidden in the jungle. Starring Charlie Hunnam as legendary British explorer Col. Percy Fawcett, along with Tom Holland as Jack Fawcett and Sienna Miller as Nina Fawcett. The cast includes Robert Pattinson, Angus Macfadyen, Daniel Huttlestone, Edward Ashley and Johann Myers. The film follows Fawcett on three different journeys to the Amazon, each with renewed hope that they may finally find this city. It already played at NYFF and Berlinale, but has been receiving divisive reviews. If you're into epic adventures, it's worth seeing.
Here's the new 60 second UK trailer (+ poster) for James Gray's The Lost City of Z, direct from YouTube:
In 1925, Fawcett ventured into the Amazon to find an ancient civilization, hoping to make one of the most important discoveries in history. For centuries Europeans believed the world's largest jungle concealed the glittering kingdom of El Dorado. Thousands had died looking for it, leaving many scientists convinced that the Amazon was truly inimical to humans. But Fawcett, whose daring expeditions inspired Conan Doyle's The Lost World, had spent years building his scientific case. Captivating the imagination of millions round the globe, Fawcett embarked with his son, determined to prove that this ancient civilization existed. Then his expedition vanished. The Lost City of Z is both written and directed by British filmmaker James Gray, of Little Odessa, We Own the Night, Two Lovers and The Immigrant previously. Adapted from David Grann's book. It first premiered at the 2016 New York Film Festival. Amazon Studios + Bleecker Street opens The Lost City of Z in select theaters starting April 14th this spring, wide release April 21st.

An immediate classic...What a stupid claim from a stupid critic.

With every trailer my excitement for this movie has waned a bit.

More and more I see less and less connections between books and films, to be honest. As for the comics and films, well, that seems to be more appropriate ...

Did you read the book this was based off of?

No. And I am not interested in doing that. Or probably even watching the film. But I wasn't thinking of this narrative (on film or literary version), I was more referring generally on taking books as an idea for films. I just wanted to stress that books, whether they be good or bad, are less and less interesting for screening on film. I know, it's an old remark about film being less appropriate medium for transforming the medium of books since books say so much more than film will ever do (which in fact is true). And it's bad news for film since film looks like a medium incapable of making its own narrative. Nowadays especially, film is just a such medium, an empty shell of technical possibility, to present ideas from other media (in pretty much narrow sense of what those other media achieved) and in that respect is not doing anything cinematically interesting ... Besides, as for this story presented here, there are a lot of outmoded, almost colonial things in it that today you just can't present as a relevant subject of the book. So, in that respect, film is also an instrument to present outmoded views on the world and culture... Which I found just sad and unproductive. But that's what Hollywood just is for some time ...

Gotcha. The ol' book is better than the movie motif...well said!

Thanks, You know, it looks like I am too hard on film. But I think that film has also its value in its own way just like books have in their own. I just don't see the filmmakers and producers are really using it often in a proper way. Cheers ...

This is the first trailer that actually represents the movie as a theatrical release and not a straight to video POS. The cinematography looks nice, I'm just not sure I want to watch a movie about a "great explorer" who ultimately (spoiler) disappears. I disliked "A Perfect Storm" for the same reason.
