Uncharted Movie Trailer Shows Young Nathan Drake In Action (VIDEO)
The movie industry is always looking for pre-existing fanbases with high-concept worlds to entice audiences to theaters, and classic video game franchises have been a ripe source for studios to bring to life on the big screen. Nintendo recently announced the voice cast for the upcoming animated Super Mario Bros. movie and a new Resident Evil live-action movie reboot is coming to theaters soon. Sony is making a big push to adapt its PlayStation franchises to film and television, with the first major step being a live-action film based on Uncharted. Now, the first Uncharted movie trailer has finally been released.
Sony Pictures released the first live-action Uncharted movie trailer on its official YouTube channel. The trailer begins with Tom Holland as a young Nathan Drake exploring ruins and discovering a lost map of Magellan. Soon after, Drake is discovered by a younger version of Sully, portrayed here by Mark Wahlberg. With their combined skills and a clue left behind by Nathan’s brother, Sam Drake, the pair embark on a quest to find Magellan’s hidden treasure. Joining them also is Sophia Taylor Ali as a young Chloe Frazer, who claims to already have been one of Sully’s only friends.
Seen for the first time in this Uncharted movie trailer, Antonio Banderas is the film’s antagonist; a wealthy art collector and treasure hunter. Tati Braddock also appears, presumably as the head of Banderas’s hired muscle who will provide Drake and crew with some obstacles on their hunt. There’s also an action sequence seen onboard a cargo plane that finds Nathan stuck on some cargo trailing from outside the flying aircraft. This is very reminiscent of a similar sequence in Uncharted 3, suggesting the film will pay homage to many iconic moments from the games. Uncharted fans are surely going to find plenty of easter eggs and callbacks in the film, and so far, the cast looks like they will be giving audiences a treasure trove of fun action and comedy moments.
