Fun New Promo Spot for Bullock & Tatum's 'The Lost City' Adventure
"Jungles eat people like us!" Paramount Pictures has debuted a new 60-second extended TV spot for The Lost City, the travel adventure buddy comedy formerly known as Lost City of D, the modern update on Romancing the Stone - but with Sandra Bullock & Channing Tatum as the two hunky leads. We posted the first official trailer last December. A reclusive romance novelist on a book tour with her cover model gets swept up in a kidnapping attempt that lands them both in a cutthroat jungle adventure. This was filmed last year mostly in the Dominican Republic, including Samaná, Santo Domingo, Casa de Campo, and Pinewood Dominican Republic. At least it's not all fake sets. The eccentric cast also includes Daniel Radcliffe, Patti Harrison, Oscar Nunez, Da'Vine Joy Randolph, and Brad Pitt. This doesn't look any funnier than before, and the best part is still Pitt's appearance at the end. I guess that's why they're always showing him.
Here's the extended "Rescue" TV spot for Adam & Aaron Nee's The Lost City, direct from YouTube:
Brilliant, but reclusive author Loretta Sage (Sandra Bullock) has spent her career writing about exotic places in her popular romance-adventure novels featuring handsome cover model Alan (Channing Tatum), who has dedicated his life to embodying the hero character, “Dash.” While on tour promoting her new book with Alan, Loretta is kidnapped by an eccentric billionaire (Daniel Radcliffe) who hopes that she can lead him to the ancient lost city’s treasure from her latest story. Wanting to prove that he can be a hero in real life and not just on the pages of her books, Alan sets off to rescue her. Thrust into an epic jungle adventure, the unlikely pair will need to work together to survive the elements and find the ancient treasure before it’s lost forever. The Lost City, formerly known as Lost City of D, is directed by filmmakers brothers Aaron Nee & Adam Nee (aka The Brothers Nee), of the films The Last Romantic and Band of Robbers previously. The screenplay is by Oren Uziel and Dana Fox and Adam Nee & Aaron Nee; from a story by Seth Gordon. Paramount opens The Lost City in theaters exclusively on March 25th, 2022 next month.
