Charlie Hunnam has taken on giant monsters and motorcycle gangs before, but this spring he’ll confront a hidden civilization deep in the jungle of the Amazon.
The Lost City of Z follows Charlie Hunnam as real life British explorer Percy Fawcett, a man who set out into the Amazon in the early 1900s in order to find a civilization of people he believed to be living in the jungle. Looked down upon by his colleagues, Fawcett hoped to find answers to the questions about where humanity came from by learning whether or not the mysterious people of the jungle had a civilization that predated our own. As you can imagine, this journey was filled with great danger, and you can see just how risky it was in a new trailer. Read More »
Mankind has always had a predilection towards exploring the unknown, journeying to places that most people have never been and will never go. The Lost City of Z tells the story of a historical expedition taken upon by explorer Percy Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam) as he ventures deep into the uncharted territory of the Amazon jungle in the 1920s. Though he disappeared in 1925 with no official recount of what he discovered, director James Grey imagines what it might have been like, based on the non-fiction bestseller by author David Grann.

An adaptation of the best-selling book The Lost City of Z has been in the works for years. While names like Brad Pitt and Benedict Cumberbatch in the lead role came and went, the film from James Gray ended up landing younger star Charlie Hunnam (Pacific Rim) in the lead role with Robert Pattinson, Tom Holland and Sienna Miller making up the supporting cast. Now we finally get to see what the film has in store for us with The Lost City of Z teaser trailer that was just released. Read More »
This weekend brings the world premiere of The Lost City of Z as the closing night film of the New York Film Festival. The adaptation of David Grann‘s true story of the same name has been written and directed by James Gray, and we’ve been waiting to hear when this movie might finally get a release after the trailer leaked earlier this past spring (and was taken down shortly thereafter). Now we finally have an answer. Read More »
Over the past few years, actor Brady Corbet has been a part of some great films. We saw the actor in Simon Killer, Force Majeure (which Fox Searchlight is remaking), Martha Marcy May Marlene, and a few other notable titles. Now he is stepping behind the camera with The Childhood of a Leader.
Corbet’s directorial debut stars Liam Cunningham (Game of Thrones), Bérénice Bejo (The Past), Stacy Martin (Nymphomaniac), and, in a brief appearance, Robert Pattinson (Maps to the Stars). Corbet also managed to get singer-songwriter Scott Walker to compose the score, which is another reason to look forward to the actor’s film.

UPDATE: The trailer has been removed by request of the production company. The above image is from Water for Elephants.
After developing for years and going through iterations with the likes of Brad Pitt and Benedict Cumberbatch in lead roles, James Gray‘s adaptation of the best-selling book The Lost City of Z is finally on film, and it’s looking to hit the big screen sometime soon. Up until today, we hadn’t seen anything from the movie, but a sales trailer has been discovered online (for now), just sitting there for about a month now. It gives us a good idea of what we can expect from this exploration epic that finds Charlie Hunnam and Robert Pattinson discovering a tribe of cannibals in the Amazon jungle. Watch below. Read More »
It was presumed Werner Herzog‘s Queen of the Desert would open in theaters last fall, but we’re still waiting on a release date for the biopic. After an underwhelming festival response, the wait makes sense. Herzog’s epic, starring Nicole Kidman and Robert Pattinson, might not be the awards contender some predicted — but it’s still a Herzog film, so, awards worthy or not, it’s still on our radar.

Anton Corbijn‘s Life has been flying under-the-radar the past few months. We saw a trailer for the film back in August, but Corbijn’s bio film didn’t generate much love or awards talk at any festivals. Then again, the director’s second feature film, The American, was hidden from critics and loathed by plenty of moviegoers, and that movie is a terrifically sparse thriller. Corbijn is taking on a very different story with his newest film, though.

The premise is not unlike that of the recent David Foster Wallace biopic The End of the Tour: the two embark on a road trip just as the tragically short-lived superstar is beginning his ascent, revealing and rediscovering themselves along the way. Watch the Life trailer after the jump. Read More »
With news surfacing that The LEGO Movie and 21 Jump Street directors Phil Lord & Chris Miller will be at the helm of a new Star Wars Anthology film focusing on a young Han Solo, everyone is wondering just who will play the charismatic smuggler.
Harrison Ford made the role iconic in the original Star Wars trilogy, and he’ll be reprising the role in The Force Awakens. But Ford can’t play a young version of the character without extensive visual effects, so some younger actor is going to have to get in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon. The question is who can pull it off?
We’ve rounded up some possibilities, some likely, some not, and some more preferable than others. Check out our list of 20 Actors Who Should Play Han Solo after the jump! Read More »
