“The story is a prequel to the games, starring Holland as a younger Drake, showing us details of how he came to meet and befriend Sully.”

Director: Ruben Fleischer
Writers: Art Marcum, Matt Holloway, Rafe Judkins

Release Date: February 18, 2022

Are we going to have another Indiana Jones on hour hands? A gun-wielding treasure-seeking action hero who has a propensity to escape any tricky predicament with the aid of a side kick and of beautiful women? Not sure this Uncharted movie will be taking it that far, but this Uncharted movie is something that many video game aficionado’s have wanted to see for a long time.

They do not wait in giving the audience a glimpse at Nathan Drake (Tom Holland). We see him in his natural exploring habitat with Sophia Ali (Chloe Frazer). But immediate judgement call here; when Drake picks up that container with the map…that just doesn’t look good.

Then there is the casting of Mark Wahlberg as Sully. I just don’t like this casting. This movie is meant to star Nathan Drake and the actor who plays Drake. This is Holland’s movie, and Wahlberg is too big of star. He may bot have the recent success as Holland, but Wahlberg is more recognizable. He is not used to playing the bit part and people aren’t used to seeing him that way either. It is going to take some adjusting.

At the 50 second mark we have the classic Nathan Drake look. From what it looks like, this is going to be his getup for at least a large portion of the movie. We see that same outfit in the most viewing and highlighted part of the trailer.

Fans of the Uncharted video games immediately noticed the plane action sequence. It is maybe the iconic Nathan Drake moment people draw upon and we will get to see if come to life.

The villainy component of Uncharted is going to be played Antonio Banderas. His character is not named on IMDB, but the one thing we do know is that he is after the same treasure Drake and his crew are chasing.

Amongst the rest of this trailer we have booby traps, Drake bouncing off ropes, Sully sassing out Drake. It is standard fare.

I am nervous about Uncharted. I need to remember that this is a prequel. I need to remember that this Nathan Drake doesn’t have facial hair or the same background as the video game developed.

The expected release date for Uncharted is February 18, 2022. We will see if that sticks. If I was a betting man, I think Uncharted gets pushed back to May to try and open summer season.

Also here is a random question. Do you think we would ever get a Lara Craft and Nathan Drake crossover? I like the concept. Let’s experiment!
