Before he pulls a sword from a stone in Guy Ritchie's fantastical reimagining of "King Arthur," Charlie Hunnam will seek a lost city to the great detriment of both his family and his soul.
Hitting theaters in April, Amazon Studios has released a new U.S. trailer for "The Lost City of Z," in which Hunnam portrays real-life 1920s British explorer Percy Fawcett, known for being obsessed with a lost ancient South American city that, if found, would prove an advanced civilization once existed in a region unfairly dismissed as savage territory.
Written and directed by James Gray (The Immigrant) and based on David Grann's best-selling book of the same name, the film chronicles Fawcett's dangerous (and perhaps rash) expedition into the Amazonian jungle, which ultimately ends with tragic results.
The film also stars Robert Pattinson, Tom Holland, Angus Macfadyen, and Sienna Miller. It arrives in theaters April 14th.
Based on author David Grann's nonfiction bestseller, THE LOST CITY OF Z tells the incredible true story of British explorer Percy Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam), who journeys into the Amazon at the dawn of the 20th century and discovers evidence of a previously unknown, advanced civilization that may have once inhabited the region. 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.
An epically-scaled tale of courage and obsession, told in Gray's classic filmmaking style, THE LOST CITY OF Z is a stirring tribute to the exploratory spirit and those individuals driven to achieve greatness at any cost.
