“To dream to seek the unknown. To look for what is beautiful is its own reward. A man’s reach should exceed his grasp, or what’s a heaven for”?
Several Months after its world premiere at the New York Film Festival, James Gray’s The Lost City Of Z finally has a trailer and is set to be released in cinemas.
Based on the true story and David Grann’s best-selling novel of the same name, Z, follows British explorer, Percy Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam), travelling into the Amazon in the early 20th century, discovering evidence of an ancient civilization and quickly becoming obsessed with finding the lost city.
If it seems Gray may be entering uncharted territory at first, previous themes are quickly resurfacing. In Two Lovers and The Immigrant, Gray was already tackling outsiders characters striving to find acceptance and assimilation.
This is yet another notable collaboration for Robert Pattinson, who has been quite busy the last few years tackling both independent productions such as Little Ashes by Paul Morrison, and the currently in-production The Trap by Harmony Korine, and major productions with Werner Herzog (Queen Of The Desert) and David Cronenberg (Cosmopolis and Maps To The Stars).
The Lost City Of Z, who also stars Sienna Miller and Tom Holland, is set to screen at the Berlin Film Festival. The film will be released by Amazon Studios and Bleecker Street on April 14 in the US and later in the month in the UK.
