New trailer for historical adventure The Lost City Of Z
Not to be confused with the lost city of Zinj that Tim Curry discovered, The Lost City Of Z is the upcoming true-life historical adventure by director James Gray. Gray also wrote the adaptation of David Grann's book, and the film stars Charlie Hunnam, Robert Pattinson, Edward Ashley, Sienna Miller and Tom Holland. Check out the latest trailer below.
Hunnam plays Percy Fawcett, who headed into the Amazon on a mapping quest in 1925. There, suffering from a nasty case of malaria, he claimed to have discovered a mythical city he called the Lost City of Z. When his adventurer peers roundly mocked the idea as a fantasy or fraud, Fawcett gathered up his son and one other companion and headed back into the jungle to prove his point. And that’s the last anyone saw of all three...
Ashley is Arthur Manley, a young corporal who accompanied Fawcett on his apparantly doomed expedition. Pattinson is Henry Costin, another bored corporal who answered Fawcett's advertisement. Holland is Fawcett's son Jack. And Miller is Fawcett's wife Nina.
The Lost City Of Z is out in the spring, and you can read much more about it in the next issue of Empire.
