A new and intense trailer for The Lost City of Z has been discovered

01.20.2017

The exploration of uncharted territory is a hell of a thing. You can research the living daylights out of your journey to the unknown locale, but once you’ve arrived, there’s no telling what manner of danger and delights await you. Honestly, I’ve never fancied myself as the Indiana Jones type. Nah, I’d rather remain in the comfort of my own home, snuggled up to a can of Red Bull and raiding me some tombs as my favorite fictional explorer, Lara Croft.

Today, a new trailer for director James Gray’s THE LOST CITY OF Z has been uncovered, and it reveals a fair amount of insight into the true-life excursion of Col. Percival Fawcett’s (Charlie Hunnam) odyssey into the Amazon, where the famous explorer hopes to discover a storied and peculiar city. The film, based on the best-selling novel “The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon documents Fawcett’s fanatical behavior in the time leading up to his journey, and ultimately, his disappearance in the year 1925.

As you can see from watching the trailer below, Charlie Hunnam (and his twisty mustache), look to be pouring it on pretty thick for this performance. Though I suppose you would have to be a rather intense individual if you were looking to stick your curiosity in a place where it doesn't belong.

I don’t know. I must admit that I’m not really feeling this one. I don’t know if it’s the bloated dialogue, the curiously dark cinematography, or simply that the story doesn’t interest me - but unless I hear otherwise, THE LOST CITY OF Z will be a hard pass for me. Personally, I’ve got a bit of a gripe on for people who invade the lands of others, looking to poke and prod into a foreign culture in the name of discovery, or science, or whatever. Some places and people would rather remain their own thing, and I can respect that.

Co-starring with Charlie Hunnam on this exodus into the unknown are actors Sienna Miller, Robert Pattinson, Angus Macfadyen, and the up-and-coming Tom Holland. The film will hit North American shores on April 14th, 2017.

Extra Tidbit: I wish that we could get this level of production poured into an Uncharted or proper Tomb Raider film. I know that movies based on video games aren't always the greatest, but I'd like to think that we can do better.

You can disagree with the actions or morality of the characters in a film and still appreciate the film itself. Imagine if everyone had looked at the trailer for THERE WILL BE BLOOD or THE WOLF OF WALL STREET and said, "I'm not sure this if for me, I have a problem with morally compromised people who are wiling to do despicable things to succeed." I don't usually have a problem with the writers giving their personal opinion on what they're reporting, but come on now.

He must hate Indiana jones

The writer of this article doesn't like the look of the movie because it has an explorer poking and prodding into foreign lands in the name of discovery and whatever as he puts it. Is he just trying to be overly politically correct? he must hate movies like Indiana Jones what with all his poking and prodding about in lands not his own.

Sounds like a potentially interesting film. As for 'poking' around in other peoples land/culture I need to point out this has been the course of history since Sapiens began to walk, down all races and cultures throughout history. You can't play the 'Europeans have been bad through history card' if that's what you're implying as historical wrong doing belongs to all human civilisations and not all 'poking around' has actually been non-beneficial either.
