Is There A Trailer Available?
Paramount Pictures released the first trailer for The Lost City in December 2021. And it has already amassed nearly 18 million views on YouTube. It is starting off with silly antics by the starring cast and gives viewers a sneak peek into the hilarious jungle scenes. You can watch the trailer below.
The Cast of the Lost City
Oscar-winner Sandra Bullock stars as Loretta Sage, a best-selling romance novelist. Channing Tatum plays Alan Caprison, a cover model for Loretta’s novel The Lost City of D. Sandra and Channing’s dynamic will be at the center of The Lost City.
Harry Potter alum Daniel Radcliffe takes an evil turn as Fairfax, a billionaire and criminal who kidnaps Loretta in order to find the Lost City. Da’Vine Joy Randolph plays Loretta’s publicist, Beth. Patti Harrison plays Alan’s sister Pratt Caprison. Oscar Nuñez, Raymond Lee, and SNL star Bowen Yang also have roles in the film.
Yes, Brad Pitt makes a cameo
Brad Pitt will be making an epic cameo appearance as a CIA agent who rescues Loretta and Alan. His cameo has been teased in the trailers for the film.
Brad’s cameo was shot over 4 days. “He just came in, and he tore it up. He’s really funny,” Sandra said about Brad. Channing added, “He came in and played a certain character that fits into this weird world. And just signed up for it completely and wholly. I’ve met him, but to get to work with him was a whole different thing. I couldn’t focus. It was really an out-of-body experience in a lot of ways.”
The plot sounds like a combo of Raiders of the Lost Ark and Romancing the Stone
Loretta Sage lives alone, eating meals at a table for one and writing her steamy novels from the comfort of her bath with a glass of chardonnay in her hand. While her personal life isn’t so adventurous, the subjects of her stories are. Lovemore and Dash, the star-crossed explorer duo who happen to find themselves in spicy situations throughout their dangerous travels, live through wild adventures in the pages of the lustful books that Sage writes. Meanwhile, Loretta herself is struggling with the realism of her writing and wrestling with frustration towards her cover model, Alan, who she sees as nothing more than a pretty face. Alan receives attention as the sexiest man in his profession with fans flocking to him for selfies. The model, though, wants to be seen as more than the character he portrays.
Sage’s most recently published book, The Lost City Of D, brings her an unwelcome offer from a very rich man. The crazed and entitled billionaire known as Fairfax reads Sage’s book and believes she may be the person who’s able to help him find the treasure hidden in the real-life Lost City that her book is based on. Upon her refusal, Sage is kidnapped before being flown to the jungle and forced to assist Fairfax and his crew in finding the missing riches. Unprepared but loyal, Alan dons the confidence of his character Dash and takes off to rescue the missing author in an attempt to prove that he is more than his muscular build and charming features.
When Dash arrives he brings with him a trained, adept adventurer who takes the lead in her rescue. With his rugged good looks and flowing blonde hair, he appears to be the real-life embodiment of her novel’s brawny character. Though he is skilled and determined, his assistance in their survival doesn’t last long, leaving Loretta and Alan to fend for themselves as they fight their way through the wildness of the jungle. As the unlikely duo tries to find a way out, Loretta believes she may actually be able to solve the case of the Lost City’s hidden treasure. Will this fantasy writer and her unqualified rescuer be able to outsmart booby-trapped temples and crack the case before Fairfax and his team? Or will they be swimming with the leeches?
