Director James Gray has made a number of superlative films. Films such as We Own the Night, Two Lovers and 2013’s under-seen classic The Immigrant each have Gray’s trademark of a startlingly assured hand. His latest film, which had its European premiere in London this evening, is another exploration of human identity albeit in a far more adventurous form.
The premiere Of The Lost City Of Z was held at The British Museum in London and was attended by actors Charlie Hunnam, Sienna Miller, Robert Pattinson, Tom Holland, Edward Ashley, Harry Melling, Tom Mulheron, and director James Gray.
That’s quite a cast, and with cinematographer Darius Khondji (who created some of this writer’s most cherished images in The City of Lost Children) audiences are in for a treat.
Colin Hart and Scott Davis were on the red carpet this evening to chat with the cast and crew, here are their premiere interviews.
The Lost City of Z is released in the UK on the 24th of March.
The Lost City of Z Premiere Interviews
Based on author David Grann’s nonfiction bestseller, THE LOST CITY OF Z tells the incredible true story of British explorer Percy Fawcett, 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. THE LOST CITY OF Z is a stirring tribute to the exploratory spirit and those individuals driven to achieve greatness at any cost.
