At Sony’s CES presser recently, the Japanese company pulled back the curtain on its much-anticipated filmic adaptation of its action-adventure video game series, Uncharted.
Unlike much of the edited trailers we’ve seen of the movie so far, this was an extended look at a full action sequence seemingly taken wholesale from the upcoming movie.
Go ahead and feast your eyes on some Nathan Drake-battling action in the new clip down below.
Helmed by Reuben Fleischer, the director behind 2009’s Zombieland and 2018’s Venom, it appears that Uncharted’s iconic action seems tonally on-brand. That said, I’d be lying if I said I was 100% excited for the movie.
Having gone through numerous re-writes, directors and actors, the pic has ostensibly been in development hell since 2010 when rumors of a film adaptation first surfaced.
Of course, I’m quietly optimistic for some lighthearted popcorn entertainment, but the writing is on the wall for yet another dud of a video game adaptation. Fingers crossed I’m completely off base, eh?
For more information about the Uncharted movie, here’s an overview courtesy of Sony:
Street-smart thief Nathan Drake (Tom Holland) is recruited by seasoned treasure hunter Victor “Sully” Sullivan (Mark 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 (Antonio 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.
Uncharted is scheduled to release exclusively in theaters on Feb. 18, 2022.
But what say you, though? Are you excited to see Nathan Drake and Sully go on a globe-trotting adventure when the film drops next month? And do you think my worries about Sony’s upcoming action flick are unfounded? Hunt for the treasure in the usual place below and let us know.
