While January is FINALLY over, it still doesn’t feel like a particularly inspiring time of year, does it? There’s seemingly illness everywhere, the weather’s still awful and spring feels like it’s still a fair while off yet.
Better just hunker down on that sofa again, I guess – especially as there’s a new flick with your name on it.
Netflix fans have been singing the praises of a 2022 comedy that’s been added to the streamer, saying the ‘10/10’ movie is simply ‘good vibes’. Sounds perfect, right?
The Lost City follows ‘brilliant, but reclusive’ author Loretta Sage, who has spent her entire career writing about exotic, far-flung places in her popular romance-adventure novels.
Watch the trailer below:
While on tour promoting her latest book with cover model Alan, Loretta is kidnaped by an eccentric billionaire who wants her to lead him to the ancient lost city’s treasure from her latest story.
Alan, desperate to prove he can be a hero in real life, sets out to rescue her, with the ‘unlikely pair’ thrust into an ‘epic jungle adventure’ where they must work together to survive the elements – and find that ancient treasure.
One person tweeted: “The Lost City on Netflix is HILARIOUS perfect casting, great script, 10/10 no notes just good vibes.”
Another said: “Just finished watching The Lost City on Netflix. If you want something that easy, light hearted and got some humour, I definitely recommend.”
Others are even begging for a sequel, with another writing: “I watched Lost City on Netflix earlier today. It was funny and a good film but the way they retconned the death of Brad Pitt's character was wild. I'd love a sequel.”
Someone else added: “Just watched The Lost City on #Netflix Absolutely loved it, not because @channingtatum was in it, ok maybe lol. But doesn’t Sandra Bullock look fabulous. Really enjoyed it, hope there are more coming.”
Watch The Lost City on Netflix now.
