Tomorrow is the release of Paramount Pictures’ action/comedy/adventure feature film, The Lost City. It stars the trio of Sandra Bullock, Channing Tatum, and Daniel Radcliffe. An acclaimed writer has spent her career writing adventure/romance novels. But when an eccentric billionaire decides that there is some truth to her work, he kidnaps her. Now her book’s cover model is on the hunt to try and save her to prove that he is more than just looks.
This adventure in The Lost City will take these two characters of Loretta (played by Bullock) and Alan (played by Tatum) across a mysterious and dangerous jungle. Both are not equipt for this kind of adventure and must work together to try and survive.
It is the kind of film that audiences can just sit back and enjoy. Not something to be taken seriously. But rather just be entertained by the balance of action and comedy in the film. They have a good catalog of films for both our protagonists. Including Miss Congeniality and 21 Jump Street, we are sure to have a fun time at the theaters this weekend.
To give us more insight on The Lost City, LRM Online‘s Emmanuel Gomez spoke with the directors Adam and Aaron Nee. They share with us the reason why this kind of film is craved for by audiences. As well as why in this day and age they are becoming less and less featured on the big screen. With Bullock announcing that she would be taking a break from acting after this film, they express their sentiment on what it means to them to work with her. Also including action, adventure, and comedy in one film is a challenge on its own as it requires balance. It’s a fabulous conversation that you can check out below.
