Thoughts: Just this month, Sandra Bullock returned to the public eye after being gone for a spell with a solid performance in the heavy Netflix drama The Unforgivable. In February, Channing Tatum will headline Dog, a comedy with heart that will be his first onscreen appearance in five years. These two A-listers are audience favorites that have been sorely missed and in March the two will combine forces for The Lost City and from the looks of this first trailer, both will give us exactly what we like best about both.
Yeah, it may be frightfully reminiscent of Romancing the Stone and I’m not totally confident of the chemistry between the two paying off like we think (though considering Tatum replaced Ryan Reynolds who Bullock also had iffy sparks with in The Proposal…I’m hedging my bets it’s all good) but…sometimes you just want movie stars to be movie stars and flex their more than capable muscles to charm our pants right off. Throw in Brad Pitt (not just “Brad Pitt” but “Long Hair Legends of the Fall Brad Pitt”!) and The Lost City officially tips the scale into hotly anticipated territory.
