‘The Lost City of Z’ Set for June 2 China Release

The Brad Pitt-produced film will screen in China less than two months after its North American debut.

Amazon Studios/Bleecker Street’s The Lost City of Z has scored a Friday, June 2, release date in China — fewer than two months after its North American debut.
Z passed China’s film censorship board earlier this month. That followed visits to China by the film’s main star Charlie Hunnam and its co-producer Dale Johnson.

Directed by James Gray, the critically acclaimed film is based on the true story of British explorer Colonel Percival Fawcett, who disappeared while searching for a mysterious city in the Amazon in the 1920s.

A Chinese poster and trailer for The Lost City of Z, which also stars Sienna Miller, Tom Holland, and Angus Macfayden, was released on Monday.

Brad Pitt, who is a producer for the film, made his first promotional appearance for Allied in China late last year ending a two-decade unspoken ban on the actor and his work after he angered Chinese officials by appearing in the 1997 film Seven Years In Tibet.
