Fawcett trekked into the Amazon early in the 1900s, coming across evidence of a lost, ancient civilization and becoming obsessed with learning more about it. In the clip, Hunnam finds himself perusing maps of South America with two older gentlemen whose intentions he has trouble discerning. “The journey may well mean your life,” he’s told by one of them. “At the very least you will be gone for several years. But, were you to succeed, such an undertaking could earn you soldierly decoration — and even reclaim your family name.”
