This year will see the film that everyone is talking about grace the big screen; Uncharted stars Marvel’s Spider-Man Tom Holland and Ted actor Mark Wahlberg in one of the most highly-anticipated movies of 2022.

Uncharted began as a video game series in 2007 (with the title Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune), in which players would control Nathan Drake, a treasure hunter obsessed with finding prizes thought to be lost to time. 

The games were, and are still popular, as audiences loved Nate’s wit and sense for adventure, as well as the engaging story. The character has been described as a ‘male Lara Croft’, which should really be seen as a positive. 

Uncharted the movie will act as an origin story of sorts for Drake, as audiences will see the street-smart thief (Holland) recruited by experienced treasure hunter Victor Sullivan aka Sully (Wahlberg), in order to go after a fortune that was lost by Ferdinand Magellan 500 years ago.

Despite the pair only expecting to pull off a simple heist job, their mission turns into a worldwide race to get to Magellan’s treasure before anyone else does, namely Moncada (Antonio Banderas), who believes the treasure to be his and his family’s right. 

If the chaotic duo can figure out the clues and solve one of the world’s oldest mysteries, then they stand a chance in finding $5 billion worth of treasure, and maybe even Nate’s long-lost brother... the only problem? They have to learn to work together. 

Ahead of its premiere, Sony released an all-new clip from the upcoming feature that sees Nate and Sully in a fight, on a plane, thousands of feet in the air; what else could we expect from a young Drake? 

Within this two-and-a-half-minute preview, Holland’s Nate is shown off rather well; his outfit is perfect, and appears to match the apparel worn by the video game character. We also see the character tangled within some rope high in the sky, attempting to save himself from certain death.

The clip also gives audiences a glimpse of cast members other than Holland and Wahlberg; Sophia Taylor Ali will be playing Chloe Frazer, a character from the second game, and Tati Gabrielle is seen portraying Braddock, who appears to be an antagonist created for the movie. 

Uncharted is scheduled to arrives in cinemas on February 11th, 2022 in the UK and February 18th, 2022 in the US; however, these dates are at risk of change or delay due to the current global pandemic.
