Uncharted Movie

Treasure hunter Victor “Sully” Sullivan recruits street-smart Nathan Drake to help him recover a 500-year-old lost fortune amassed by explorer Ferdinand Magellan. What starts out as a heist soon becomes a globe-trotting, white-knuckle race to reach the prize before the ruthless Santiago Moncada can get his hands on it. If Sully and Nate can decipher the clues and solve one of the world’s oldest mysteries, they stand to find $5 billion in treasure — but only if they can learn to work together.

Uncharted is a 2022 American action-adventure film directed by Ruben Fleischer from a screenplay by Rafe Lee Judkins, Art Marcum and Matt Holloway. Based on the video game series of the same name from Naughty Dog and Sony Interactive Entertainment, it stars Tom Holland as Nathan Drake and Mark Wahlberg as his mentor Victor Sullivan, with Sophia Ali, Tati Gabrielle, and Antonio Banderas in supporting roles. In the film, Drake is recruited by Sullivan in a race against corrupt billionaire Santiago Moncada (Banderas) and his hired mercenary Jo Braddock (Gabrielle) to locate the treasure of the Magellan expedition.

Uncharted entered development in 2008 with producer Avi Arad stating that he would be working with Sony Pictures to develop a film adaptation of the video game series. It entered a complicated production process with various directors, screenwriters, and cast members attached at various points. Filmmakers David O. Russell, Neil Burger, Seth Gordon, Shawn Levy, Dan Trachtenberg, and Travis Knight were initially signed to direct while Wahlberg was set to play Drake in early development. Holland was cast as Drake in May 2017 and Fleischer was hired as the director in early 2020. Principal photography commenced in March 2020, before being quickly halted, resuming in July and finishing that October, with filming locations including Babelsberg Studio in Berlin and on location across Spain and Southeast Asia.

Uncharted was originally set for release on December 18, 2020 but was postponed several times, namely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It premiered in Barcelona on February 7, 2022, and was theatrically released in the United States by Sony Pictures Releasing on February 18. The film received mixed reviews from critics, with praise for Holland’s performance and the action sequences, but criticism for the screenplay, casting, and lack of originality. Uncharted grossed $145.9 million worldwide, making it the fourth highest-grossing film of 2022.
