Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum's adventure rom-com The Lost City has finally landed in US cinemas.


And with The Lost City’s UK release date fast-approaching, Paramount Pictures has released an exciting new featurette, giving fans a first look at the sort of fun audiences have in store for them.

The action comedy centres around reclusive writer Loretta Sage (Bullock) and her cover model Alan (Tatum), who find themselves at the heart of a kidnapping plot at the hands of a billionaire named Fairfax (Daniel Radcliffe) in the jungle.

Following the last featurette which delved into Sandra Bullock’s jumpsuit, the latest explores Channing Tatum’s transformation into the cover model Dash.

In Becoming Dash, the actor jokes: "I was pretty nervous about the whole wig situation. I wasn't ready for what it was going to do to me like spiritually? Just sort of like, suction cups to my head, and all of sudden, Dash was there... I sort of blacked out. The wig is actually in control. It manipulates you, and you're just a pawn in its game."

Meanwhile, it's been confirmed that Brad Pitt has more of a substantial role in the film than just a cameo as previously reported, according to directors Aaron and Adam Nee.

"Brad Pitt’s name came up early for this," Adam told Games Radar. "But the role isn’t a cameo, he’s in a good chunk of the movie."

The Lost City release date

The Lost City will arrive in UK cinemas on 13th April 2022. The movie landed earlier in the US on 25th March.

As a Paramount Pictures movie, the film is expected to follow in the footsteps of Snake Eyes and A Quiet Place – and land on the Paramount Plus streaming service about a month after its release.

But with nothing confirmed as yet, viewers will have to wait for more streaming information.

The Lost City cast

Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum in The Lost City

The Lost City boasts a star-studded cast with its main trio of actors – Sandra Bullock (The Blind Side), Channing Tatum (Magic Mike) and Daniel Radcliffe (the Harry Potter franchise).

Bullock will play the author Loretta Sage, while Tatum is on board to star as Alan, the cover model that joins forces with Sage during the adventure. Meanwhile, Radcliffe will star as the eccentric billionaire, Fairfax.

Brad Pitt has a supporting role in the movie, which was previously rumoured to be a small cameo. Directors Aaron and Adam Nee have said that Pitt has a substantial part in the film, with Adam revealing to Games Radar: "Brad Pitt’s name came up early for this. But the role isn’t a cameo, he’s in a good chunk of the movie. We were like, 'We’re never going to get Brad Pitt to do this.'

"And then Sandy did Bullet Train [with Pitt], she was pitching him the role and she and Brad share a hairdresser, Janine [Thompson]. Janine was saying to Brad, ‘How would you do your hair if you played this part? What would you do about this?’ It felt like she just started getting him excited about it. And it then suddenly became real – and we were sitting on a Zoom, and talking to him about the movie. Before we knew it, he was in the jungle."

Details about his character are yet to be confirmed.

The cast is rounded out by Patti Harrison (Together Together), Oscar Nuñez (The Office), Da’Vine Joy Randolph (Only Murders in the Building) and Bowen Yang (Saturday Night Live).

Character posters were recently shared on The Lost City's official Twitter account.

The Lost City plot

The Lost City follows romance-adventure novelist Loretta Sage (Bullock), who sets out on a worldwide book tour with her cover model, Alan (Tatum), who embodies the hero character in her novels.

The tour is quickly derailed, however, when Sage is kidnapped by an eccentric billionaire (Radcliffe) who hopes she can lead him to the ancient lost city’s treasure which featured in her latest book. Alan sets out to rescue her – and we’re guessing that’s where Brad Pitt’s mystery character also comes in.

The official synopsis reads: "Wanting to prove that he can be a hero in real life and not just on the pages of her books, Alan sets off to rescue her. Thrust into an epic jungle adventure, the unlikely pair will need to work together to survive the elements and find the ancient treasure before it's lost forever."
