Any self-respecting blockbuster must see its trailer leaked before its official release. Uncharted therefore respects what has almost become a tradition. An excerpt from the very first trailer for the feature film adapted from the adventures of Nathan Drake was indeed leaked last night. And as one might expect, this leak was just a harbinger of the trailer being properly uploaded.
Sony Pictures has just released the very first trailer for Uncharted starring Tom Holland. Unsurprisingly, the passages seen in the leak last night are indeed present. And among these is the plane scene inspired by a famous sequence from Uncharted 3.
While this adaptation uses well-known scenes from Naughty Dog’s games, it differs from them in important ways. As its cast shows, the movie Uncharted chronicles Nathan Drake’s early years.
Tom Holland unhappy with his acting in the movie Uncharted
Film buffs and fans of Uncharted games will of course have things to say about this adaptation. Tom Holland has made no secret of his dissatisfaction with his own performance in the film. The English comedian had indeed declared last March:
As soon as you start worrying about “being good looking in this shot,” acting transforms away from just playing a character. I think there are parts of my performance in Uncharted where I was spellbound by the “I want to be classy (in this scene), I want this to be my cool moment.”
I learned an important lesson because it was less about making a success of my placement and playing a scene than of being successful in my placement, striking a pose and contracting my biceps… It was a mistake and it’s probably something I didn’t never do again.
As a reminder, Uncharted is scheduled in French cinemas for February 16. Directed by Ruben Fleischer, the film will star Tom Holland, Mark Wahlberg and Sophia Ali as Nathan Drake, Victor Sullivan and Chloe Frazer respectively. Antonio Banderas will also be in the cast but his role has not yet been specified.
