Rob Quotes in the media
from 'The Lost City of Z' Premiere

Robert on his Beard

“Oh god, it took forever to grow. I was so happy to get rid of it. It was disgusting, the whole thing was disgusting,” he told The Hollywood Reporter on Saturday night. “And I had lost so much weight by the end of the shoot — nearly 35 pounds, we weren’t eating the entire time — that when I shaved it off, it was like I had no bottom half of my face. I was like a small, strange squirrel.” via The Hollywood Reporter

Robert on Filming

“People literally seemed like they were going to die,” Robert Pattinson said from the safe grounds of Alice Tully Hall in Manhattan on Saturday night. While several in the cast of Pattinson’s film, “The Lost City of Z,” spoke of extreme diets and strict workout regimes to prep for filming, the British actor noted a more vague intensity. “It was one of the craziest movies I’ve ever worked on,” he added. “The shoot was insane.”

“James sent me the book maybe six, seven years ago,” Pattinson said of the David Grann book. “And it was with an entirely different cast, and a different script. I think it’s gone through three different iterations of casts since I’ve been attached. I’m the only one who was originally involved. He shoots like people don’t really shoot anymore. This film is so beautiful. And I think films nowadays just aren’t as pretty as James’ movies are.” via WWD

Robert on Spiders

“There was this weird thing that happened in the hotel,” Pattinson told Vulture. “It flooded everyday at 3 p.m., because we went in the rainy season. No one realized it was the rainy season, and somehow all these massive spiders would float into our room. At night there would be like an inch of water in the room, it was kind of terrifying. I made a little hammock on top of my bed just hanging there, in terror. … There was one that was called a Brazilian wandering spider,” Pattinson said. “James, who is normally very neurotic about anything wildlife related, saw this spider, and it is incredibly beautiful, and he was like, ‘We need to get the B camera, get on this, get on this. Somebody get it to move.’ And he was prodding this spider, which is like six-inches wide, with a stick, trying to get it to do something interesting. And the Colombian crew was like, ‘That is the most potent spider in the world.’ There were a lot of situations like that.” via Vulture

Robert on filming in the Jungle

“There were moments where me and Charlie were going through with machetes and we were in totally virgin jungle humans never went through,” Pattinson said. “And they were like, ‘Yeah, just do a beautiful shot and hack through it with machetes.’ Me and Charlie were just like, ‘Uh, this feels like really ropey (sketchy) to do this.’” via Vulture

“Shooting in Colombia, being on a boat all day, on a river with a glacier in the background. It’s incredible.” via Vogue

James Gray's 'The Lost City of Z' to close New York Film Festival

The Lost City of Z, written and directed by James Gray (The Immigrant, Two Lovers), will close the 54th New York Film Festival. The film, based on journalist David Grann’s nonfiction book of the same name, will make its world premiere at the festival’s final gala screening on Saturday, October 15.

James Gray’s emotionally and visually resplendent epic tells the story of Lt. Colonel Percy Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam), the British military-man-turned-explorer whose search for a lost city deep in the Amazon grows into an increasingly feverish, decades-long magnificent obsession that takes a toll on his reputation, his home life with his wife (Sienna Miller) and children, and his very existence. Also starring Robert Pattinson as fellow explorer and right-hand-man Henry Costin, and Tom Holland (Spiderman), as Fawcett’s son.

Gray and cinematographer Darius Khondji cast quite a spell, exquisitely pitched between rapture and dizzying terror. The Lost City of Z represents a form of epic storytelling that has all but vanished from the landscape of modern cinema, and a rare level of artistry.

“James Gray is one of the finest filmmakers we have,” said New York Film Festival Director and Selection Committee Chair Kent Jones. “Each of his movies is so beautifully wrought, visually and emotionally, but The Lost City of Z represents something new. It’s a true epic, spanning two continents and three decades, and it’s a genuine vision of the search for sublimity.”

“It’s truly a dream come true for me to have The Lost City of Z selected for the closing night of the New York Film Festival,” said Gray. “I couldn’t be more honored that the film’s world premiere will be in my hometown, a city I still love above all others.”

The film was produced by Brad Pitt and other prestigious closing night films from the NYFF include the Oscar-winning Birdman, The Descendants, Sideways, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, The Piano and The Last Tango in Paris.

Fawcett is said to have been one of George Lucas’s inspirations for Indiana Jones and was also a friend of the authors H Rider Haggard and Arthur Conan Doyle; the latter’s The Lost World was inspired by the explorer.

Reviews: Initial Reactions to
'The Lost City of Z' First Trailer

The Playlist: “Described as an action-adventure, in Gray’s hand this new sales trailer is somewhat reminiscent of “Apocalypse Now,” and given the filmmaker is an avowed Francis Ford Coppola fan, you’ll probably see more of that influence in the movie itself (as well as that of David Lean, whom Gray said was an major inspiration on the film) via the cinematography of the great Darius Khondji (who shot “The Immigrant”). … Recent reports said “The Lost City Of Z” would not be ready until the fall, so it could turn up at the Venice International Film Festival instead. There’s obviously no release date or distributor yet; a festival bow will have to come first. But with the package of Gray, this cast, and Pitt’s Plan B, securing a distributor shouldn’t be difficult.”

The Film Stage: “For our first glimpse at the film, an epic three-minute sales trailer has arrived, which shows off the story and Darius Khondji‘s ravishing cinematography.”

Filmosphere (French): “After 7 years of development, the first images of the adaptation of The Lost City of Z by James Gray finally visible in a trailer visibly thinking for future buyers. And not surprisingly, it’s beautiful.

Slash Film: “From the looks of this trailer, there seems to be an Apocalypse Now influence on the film, and it the visuals are gorgeous, shot by James Gray’s director of photography on The Immigrant, Darius Khondji. Since this is just a sales trailer though, the film doesn’t have distribution yet, so we’re still not sure when we’ll get to see this one in theaters. That means it could pop up on the festival circuit sometime this year to help drum up interest, but we’ll have to wait and see.”

Screen Rant: “Will The Lost City of Z work on screen? Well, it certainly has strong source material; this is one of those books that likely had most people reading it visualizing the movie. And Gray has been on a career roll of late; his last film, The Immigrant, was probably his best work, and judging by the trailer this adaptation looks visually stunning.”

Awards Daily: “By interweaving the great story of Fawcett with his own investigative escapades in South America and Britain, Grann provides an in-depth, captivating character study that has the relentless energy of a classic adventure tale.”

Screen Crush: “Now starring Charlie Hunnam and Robert Pattinson, the first trailer for The Lost City of Z has arrived, offering a sneak peek at one man’s daring expedition into the Amazon to commune with a primitive tribe. … oining Hunnam are Robert Pattinson (with a very awesome beard) as British Army Corporal Henry Costin,”

Punchycritic: “Sweeping, epic trailer …”

Live for Films: ”This is just a sales trailer at the moment, but it looks like there is some stunning footage involved”

Cinemaadois (Brazil): “But the cast includes big names like Robert Pattinson ..” It also mentions 27 October 2016 cinema release which we posted earlier this year.

We Got This Covered: “Incredible Trailer For The Lost City Of Z Promises Lavish, Amazonian Adventure … Robert Pattinson, Sienna Miller, and Tom Holland all co-star in the award-tipped movie, which boasts some jaw-dropping cinematography by the acclaimed Darius Khondji.
