AceShowbiz - StudioCanal UK has released new trailer for James Gray's "The Lost City of Z". The film starring Charlie Hunnam as Fawcett, Sienna Miller, Tom Holland and Robert Pattinson is based on a true story about Percy Fawcett, a British explorer who tried to discover an ancient city in Amazon and eventually went missing in 1925.
While the previous trailer focused on the tale's adventure aspects, the latest one centers on how Fawcett's friends and family support his belief. It features heartwarming moments between Fawcett, his wife and his son.
"The Lost City of Z" is based on David Grann 2009's best-selling non-fiction book of the same name. The movie was premiered on October 15, 2016 at New York Film Festival and received critical acclaims from critics. It will also be featured in Berlinale Special edition in 67th Berlin International Film Festival in February.
Director James Gray once shared his thought about "The Lost City of Z". "...that is a very, very complicated production and the story is amazing, but it's a complicated story. And you want to get it right. It's a very, very scary proposition to go into the jungle and all that. But at the same time it's terrific. It's why you make movies," he said.
"The Lost City of Z" is set to be released in the U.K. on March 24 and U.S. theaters on April 14. The synopsis reads, "Despite being ridiculed by the scientific establishment who regard indigenous populations as 'savages', the determined Fawcett-supported by his devoted wife (Sienna Miller), son (Tom Holland) and aide de camp (Robert Pattinson)-returns time and again to his beloved jungle in an attempt to prove his case, culminating in his mysterious disappearance in 1925."
