Hey do you remember 2008? Global financial crisis, Iron Man was released in cinemas, Uncharted to be made into a movie announced by Sony? Sure you do. Anyway after some additional delays with the pandemic today is the day for our first real good look at the film thanks to the first official trailer.
First released yesterday thanks to yet another leak/security breach at Sony (not Tom Holland’s fault as far as we know) much like the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer. The Uncharted trailer much like the Spidey one was then released by Sony either as scheduled or in response to that leak which is how we got it early this morning.
For non-fans of the Playstation exclusive Quadrilogy, Uncharted is an if Indiana Jones was modern day (and possibly a mass murderer) staring Nathan Drake, treasure hunter and his best slightly older friend/pilot/companion Sully. The series consists of 4 separate main self contained stories (not counting the PS Vita one) of searching for lost spanish gold to lost cities (usually lost) which have been released across the PlayStation 3, 4 and 5 eras. The final title Uncharted 4 wrapped up the story for the main character Drake but there has already been a spin off game with the supporting characters.
The trailer itself looks to be borrowing heavily across the complete Uncharted series with action pieces and sequences with a first meeting between Drake and Sully which occured in Uncharted 2, one of the action set pieces with a plane in Uncharted 3 and mention of Drake’s brother Sam who does not appear until Uncharted 4. While we are unsure if this means the film is intended to be a once off as opposed to a series, we are sure if it is received well enough we won’t be waiting another 13 years for the next one.
You can check out the full trailer for yourself and then let us know what you think. Are you excited for a much younger Nathan Drake? Is there any set pieces from the games that you are hoping to be included? Will there be a Crash Bandicoot mini-game? Tell us in the comments down below.
Uncharted is set for a February 18, 2021 Australian release
