movie poster for The Lost City. A man and woman walk through a jungle with a volcano in the distance. She is Sandra Bullock, a slim brunette, with hair down past her shoulders, wearing a pink sequined jumpsuit that has been cut into shorts.

To the left of Chris Pine is Regé-Jean Page, dressed in the silver armor of a Paladin, and behind him is Justice Smith wielding a magic staff.
