The Lost City will be screened one week early at special Fandango screenings, the first since the plague shut down cinemas. Along with Daniel Radcliffe as the wicked Fairfax, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Patti Harrison, Oscar Nuez, Raymond Lee, Bowen Yang, and Brad Pitt, Channing Tatum and Sandra Bullock headline the ensemble cast for the rom-com adventure. The Lost City is directed by Aaron and Adam Nee, who rewrote the script based on previous drafts by Mortal Kombat’s Oren Uziel and Cruella’s Dana Fox, which were all based on a story treatment by Horrible Bosses director Seth Gordon.
Loretta Sage, played by Bullock, is a great but reclusive adventure author, and Alan, played by Tatum, is a gorgeous cover model who has committed his life to portray the hero of her tales. When Loretta is abducted while on a book tour by Radcliffe’s eccentric millionaire Fairfax, who believes she can take him to the fabled mansion of ancient riches, Alan sets out to rescue her, throwing them into a spectacular adventure. Those anticipating the release of The Lost City have something to look forward to as the film nears completion.
Fandango has announced special early screenings for The Lost City, with only a few weeks until the film hits theaters. Fandango is allowing moviegoers the chance to see the Tatum and Bullock-led adventure early on March 19, a full week ahead of its global theatrical release, as part of their Premiere Screenings program, which debuted in 2019. Early screenings of The Lost City, which will be held in 225 theaters around the country and will feature unique conversations with the cast, are now on sale.
Since studios began cranking up their theatrical releases, Fandango’s early Lost City screenings are the latest film to receive the early exhibition treatment. The Premiere Screenings series initially began in 2019, with early screenings including Taron Egerton’s Rocketman, Shazam! from the DC Extended Universe, and Mike Flanagan’s Stephen King adaption Doctor Sleep. The program was idle for a while, with cinemas shutting down or playing in restricted capacity due to the ongoing epidemic, until returning in December with Jennifer Hudson’s Aretha Franklin biopic Respect.
It’s worth noting that The Lost City’s early Fandango screenings won’t be the film’s official premiere; it’ll be held on March 12 at the South by Southwest film festival. With many opportunities to watch the picture before its general theater release, it appears that Paramount is confident in the Tatum and Bullock-success starrer’s and how critics will react to it. The wait is almost over as Fandango releases The Lost City early on March 19, followed by a broad release on March 25.
