Next in line in the increasingly popular buddy action-comedy genre looks to be “The Lost City”. Directed by brothers Aaron and Adam Nee, this silly looking romp puts Sandra Bullock alongside Channing Tatum for a wacky adventure with Daniel Radcliffe playing the main antagonist. I’m not 100% sure how those particular pieces will come together, but the first trailer released today by Paramount looks reasonably entertaining.
Bullock plays a romance writer on a book tour for her latest novel when she is kidnapped by a wacky billionaire (Radcliffe) who is convinced she can lead him to a treasure in a place known as The Lost City (or something like that). Tatum plays her hunky but air-headed cover model (think an even more ridiculous Fabio) who makes it his mission to go save her. Obvious hijinks ensue. The trailer looks utterly absurd which could be a good thing. But its biggest laugh comes with the appearance of a certain unexpected star near the end of the trailer. I’ll let you discover it for yourself.
“The Lost City” is set to hit theaters March 25th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
