As much as we value Oscarworth’s thought-provoking and intellectual cuisine, there is something particularly reassuring about watching jester Channing Tatum and glitter-clad Sandra Bullock run through the jungle for two hours in these troubled times, escaping the clutches of the evil Daniel Radcliffe. … …
If that sounds anything appealing, Lost City, formerly known by the much more excellent name Lost City D, may just be an escape blockbuster for you.
In the first trailer for the film, released on Thursday, Bullock plays Loretta Sage, a reclusive novelist who becomes entangled in a web of real mystery when she is kidnapped by an eccentric billionaire (Radcliffe) who thinks he can help him. find the lost treasure. Who should step in to save her if not the skinny cover model next door to Fabio named Dash (Tatum) from her books?
“On an epic jungle adventure, the unlikely couple will have to work together to survive the elements and find an ancient treasure before it’s lost forever,” reads the film’s tier.
Shamelessly copying off Romance with a Stone, the first glance delivers familiar but long-awaited treats as the duo struggle to stay alive, testing the limits of their inevitable crackling chemistry. Romance may be on the horizon, but so far all we see is Bullock cleansing leeches from Tatum’s much-loved ass.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Bullock joked that during the filming of the film, she concluded that she and Tatum were “separated at birth.”
“I don’t know, because we are all locked in our houses for so long, but if you can just sit in a room with someone, and it’s quiet and for no reason, start laughing, and you know why the other one is laughing, but you not I know why the other is laughing, it makes life much easier, ”she said.
“They just don’t make films like that anymore,” Tatum added. “It’s kind of one of those moments where we want to see if we can come up with a new version of a film of this genre. … This is a completely unique, original story. “
Ultimately, even their considerable charm can’t rival Brad Pitt, who saves both stars from danger in a short and action-packed cameo role in the film.
“Why are you so handsome?” Bullock’s character asks how Pitt devastates a horde of bad guys and comes to their aid.
“My dad was a meteorologist,” Pitt replies with his trademark brilliance.
The Lost City, which also stars comedy favorites Da’Vin Joy Randolph, Bowen Yang, Oscar Nunez and Patti Harrison, will be released on March 25, 2022.
