The New York Film Festival will begin in just one week and will feature some of the most acclaimed films out of Sundance, Cannes, Venice, and more. The festival will also host the premieres of a few highly anticipated films, including Ava DuVernay’s new documentary “The 13th,” set for an October 7th release on Netflix, Mike Mills’ “20th Century Women,” which will arrive in theaters this December, and finally, James Gray’s “The Lost City of Z,” which has a spring 2017 release. Check out the official New York Film Festival trailer below for some of the first footage from Gray’s new film.
Based on David Grann’s 2009 book by the same name, “The Lost City of Z” follows British explorer Percy Fawcett (played by Charlie Hunnam) who attempted to find an ancient lost city in the Amazon and finally disappeared in 1925 along with his son (Tom Holland). The film also stars Robert Pattinson (“Maps to the Stars”), Sienna Miller (“Mississippi Grind”), and more.
Gray has written and directed six previous films, including “The Immigrant,” “Two Lovers,” “We Own The Night,” and “The Yards.” All four of those films premiered in competition at the Cannes Film Festival for the Palme D’Or.
The New York Film Festival runs from September 30th through October 16th. Tickets are now on sale at the FSLC website.
