Uncharted: Trailer and Release Dates

Gaming enthusiasts are in for a treat. A film adaptation of the beloved Uncharted series will be released. It will focus on Nathan Drake, a young man who embarks on his first adventure. Sony has released the trailer. Fans were able to relive some of their favorite action scenes, including the Uncharted 3 cargo plane set and the ship that is hinged in a cave.

Over a decade has passed since the film’s development. The film was first developed in 2008 and Nathan Drake’s role was played by Mark Wahlberg in 2010. It was a long and complicated process. Avi Arad, the producer, had said he would collaborate with Sony to develop Uncharted’s film adaptation. However, several directors, including Neil Burger, David O. Russell and Seth Gordon were originally signed to direct the film.

Nathan Fillion, Mark Wahlberg, and Chris Pratt were all contenders for Nathan Drake’s role, but the plot turned out to be an origin story. Tom Holland was chosen to play the role in 2017.

Initial response from fans

It has a “Dwayne-Johnson archetype-meets Indiana Jones” vibe. Fans were taken aback by the lack of character resemblance in Nathan Drake’s casting. The bigger outcry is about Drake’s mentor Victor Sullivan who appears to be missing his famous moustache.

Many fans were unhappy with Holland’s decision and they rewatched the Uncharted Live Action fan movie in 2018 in which Nathan Fillion plays the main role. Fillion expressed interest in playing Nathan Drake as early as 2009. He even started a Twitter campaign encouraging fans to support him. Fans were very happy with the short film. It is well worth the effort if you haven’t yet seen it.

Uncharted will be released in theaters across the United States on February 18, 2022, on IMAX 3D and RealD 3D.
