UNCHARTED, the feature film adventure based on the wildly successful Naughty Dog video game saga is all set to release in UK cinemas soon, and to heighten our anticipation, Sony Pictures has launched (quite literally) a clip that showcases how director Ruben Fleischer (Venom, Zombieland) has captured all the frenzy of the franchise.
Written by Rafe Judkins (“The Wheels of Time,” “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. “), Art Marcum (Iron Man, Punisher: Warzone) and Matt Holloway (Iron Man, Punisher: Warzone), and starring Tom Holland, Mark Wahlberg, Sophia Ali, Tati Gabrielle and Antonio Banderas, and Antonio Banderas, this first adaptation of the franchise shadows the street-smart thief Nathan Drake (Holland) who finds himself recruited by seasoned treasure hunter Victor “Sully” Sullivan (Wahlberg) to recover a fortune lost by Ferdinand Magellan 500 years ago. What starts as a heist job for the duo becomes a globe-trotting, white-knuckle race to reach the prize before the ruthless Moncada (Banderas), who believes he and his family are the rightful heirs. If Nate and Sully can decipher the clues and solve one of the world’s oldest mysteries, they stand to find $5 billion in treasure and perhaps even Nate’s long-lost brother…but only if they can learn to work together.
Given the current state of affairs in the UK, there’s still no official release date for the film, but Uncharted is reportedly releasing exclusively at UK cinemas, “coming soon.” In the meanwhile, we’ll leave you with the latest cargo that Sony has released in anticipation of the movie that plays some serious homage to the third entry in the original video game franchise….
