The first trailer for the upcoming Uncharted movie has been out, and it features a death-defying cargo plane sequence. The long-awaited adaptation of the popular Playstation video game franchise of the same name, Uncharted, is finally here. Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg appear in the picture, which will be released in theatres next month.
The Uncharted series is one of Sony PlayStation’s most well-known franchises. The series follows Nathan Drake, a wise-cracking treasure hunter, as he embarks on daring travels in search of rare artefacts while facing deadly adversaries along the way. His persona is similar to that of Tomb Raider heroine Lara Croft, and like Croft, Drake will shortly make his big-screen debut in Uncharted; in which Holland will play Nathan Drake and Wahlberg will play Nate’s instructor, Sully.
With Holland slated to play Nathan Drake in the upcoming Uncharted adaption, the film’s marketing has gone into overdrive. In fact, the first trailer for the film has debuted online, showcasing the film’s mid-air combat sequence; which has been a big part of the promotion so far.

Though storey specifics for Uncharted have been few, this trailer introduces spectators to Nate and Sully as they are forced to react quickly when cornered in the cargo hold of a cargo jet. This causes Nate to abandon the cargo as well as several of the evil people, including himself. Of course, aficionados of the Uncharted series will immediately recognise that the film is based on a scene from the games. The moment in which Nathan Drake is dragged out of the rear of a plane and forced to try to live miles above the Earth is ripped from an Uncharted 3 level.
It might provide Holland with a non-Marvel property, allowing him to pursue more work outside of the Spider-Man universe
Not only that, but the scene is jam-packed with fan service, including several instances where Holland’s Nate exclaims “oh crap,” which is a common catchphrase for the video game hero.
Uncharted’s potential success might have a huge impact on the blockbuster industry as a whole. It might confirm the video game adaptation’s viability, which has been growing with films like Tomb Raider, Detective Pikachu, and Mortal Kombat.
Furthermore, it might provide Holland with a non-Marvel property, allowing him to pursue more work outside of the Spider-Man universe; which he has undoubtedly had some difficulty handling in recent years. Whatever happens, moviegoers will finally get the long-awaited Uncharted adaption on February 18 when the film opens in theatres.
