Welcome to the jungle, Charlie Hunnam. In the new movie The Lost City of Z, based on David Grann’s novel, he plays a British explorer who’s found evidence that an advanced civilization once existed in the Amazon. Although some people think he’s lost his mind, he’s determined to prove his case, so he heads back to the jungle with his wife, son, and an assistant. Hunnam took the role very seriously; to prepare, he isolated himself from people and technology so that he would understand what his character goes through.
The Lost City of Z, which also stars Robert Pattinson and Sienna Miller, is playing now in theaters.
