Bits of information has been swirling around for years about an “Uncharted” movie, and now it has its first trailer and a release day. The film is based on the popular Sony PlayStation action-adventure series of the same name and will star Tom Holland as the game’s protagonist Nathan Drake. Video game adaptations don’t have the best track record, but the “Uncharted” world seems perfect for a big budget blockbuster.
Holland is joined by Mark Wahlberg (who plays his wise-cracking partner Sully) in what looks to be a Nathan Drake origin story. It’s directed by Ruben Fleischer (“Zombieland”, “Venom”) and hops around the globe as Nathan searches for lost treasures in a number of exotic locations. Perhaps the biggest casting treat is Antonio Banderas playing the film’s villain, a “collector” who makes it clear he does more than “dabble”. It’s hard to tell much about the story (which is a good thing), but the movie looks fun and the action scenes should be thrilling.
“Uncharted” hits theaters February 18th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
