Get Tickets THE LOST CITY opens March 25

She is America’s Sweetheart, as well as MISS CONGENIALITY. Sandra Bullock has been one of the world’s most dependable and beloved movie stars, accompanying audience members to outer space, the football fields of the Deep South, and the driver’s seat of a speeding bus. In her latest feature, THE LOST CITY, Bullock plays a best-selling author who finds herself living out one of the adventures she normally writes about. It’s the type of comedic lark that Bullock does so very, very well.

As THE LOST CITY makes its way to AMC Theatres, we started thinking about the best Sandra Bullock performances. All of these would make for terrific Movie Nights, and can help you prepare for the upcoming journey into the jungle alongside Bullock, Channing Tatum, Brad Pitt, and Daniel Radcliffe.

The Lost City

Hollywood doesn’t make rom-com adventures like this anymore, though THE LOST CITY proves why more studios should take a gamble on them, particularly if they find a lead couple that has the same level of chemistry as Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum. Both performers understand exactly what they do well, from self-deprecating humor to exaggerated physical comedy. Bullock is a character we want to root for, no matter what situation she finds herself in. Her LOST CITY character could end up becoming one of your favorite Sandy characters, ever.

Gravity

Essentially, GRAVITY is “the Sandra Bullock show,” as the A-list actress plays an astronaut stranded alone in space following an accident that propels her colleague (George Clooney) into the stratosphere. And while the selling point of GRAVITY was the technical wizardry that director Alfonso Cuaron used to replicate the terror and physical challenges of space, none of this works is Bullock isn’t as compelling of a performer as she is. There’s a reason she earned an Oscar nomination for this role.

The Blind Side

Forever known as the movie that earned Sandra Bullock her Academy Award, THE BLIND SIDE also tells a sweet – and true – story of a family taking in a boy in need, then shepherding him through his early football career and putting him on the path to the NFL. Among the things that stand out in this kind-natured drama is Sandra Bullock’s winning performance as Leigh Anne Tuohy.

Miss Congeniality

Following the success of SPEED, Hollywood tried to fit Sandra Bullock into a number of different genres, but it wasn’t until MISS CONGENIALITY that the industry understood how funny she could be. Sure, she’s excellent in thrillers (THE NET, A TIME TO KILL) and romantic dramas (HOPE FLOATS). But by playing an FBI agent forced to go undercover at a beauty pageant, Bullock had fun poking fun at herself, and the audience enjoyed playing along.

Speed

The one that started it all. SPEED paired Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves on an L.A. city bus that they couldn’t slow down, or else it would blow up. Bullock’s role as an innocent passenger forced into action could have been eclipsed by the action, or the action hero who tended to take the lead in the worst examples of these stories. But her driver, Annie, became the beating heart of the bomb-on-a-bus thriller, and catapulted the actress on a trajectory that’s still playing out to this day.
