The Lost City follows shy, reclusive author, Loretta Sage (Bullock), who is on a book tour promoting her latest story along with model Alan (Tatum), who poses as Dash, the handsome hero on the front cover of Loretta’s romance novels.
However, while on the tour, Loretta is kidnapped by a villain known as Fairfax (Radcliffe), who wants the author to lead him to the lost city from her newest book, where he hopes to find lost treasure.
Alan wishes to prove he’s more than a pretty face, so decides to race through unknown territory in a bid to save Loretta; can the duo get to the treasure before Fairfax does?
“Neither one of them should be stuck in a jungle” states Bullock when discussing her and her co-star's characters, Loretta and Alan, respectively.
“We have a cast and crew of 650, and you just really like everyone,” continued Bullock as she spoke with fondness of their location (Dominican Republic), and the workers both on-set and off.
Bullock then turns her compliments to the “fabulous Daniel Radcliffe”, who she states to be “a brilliant actor”.
Radcliffe himself then speaks about The Lost City, claiming it to be “a great massive action-adventure, and it hits all those notes, but it’s also genuinely funny.”
Da'Vine Joy Randolph, who plays Beth in the forthcoming feature, also lends her opinion, saying that she thought “we were gonna CGI most of this stuff”, suggesting that a lot of the effects seen in the film, were done for real.
Bullock closes off the behind-the-scenes clip by telling the interviewer how great it was to work with Brad Pitt, who has a cameo in the movie.
“He showed up,” began Bullock, “and was so game... did all these stunts, it was really awesome.”
The Lost City will be in cinemas on April 13th, 2022.
The behind-the-scenes clips that are releasing of The Lost City are only making me more and more excited to see this film!
At first, I thought that I would skip this one and wait for DVD release, but the more I heard about it and the more hilarious clips were released, I knew this was a trip to the cinema for sure.
The Lost City seems to combine all the great things about action-comedies, namely a great cast who have great connections, and a plot that allows a lot of humour and jokes; I’m in!
