Have a look at the first poster of the movie.
Uncharted video game series has sold more than 41 million units until now. In an interview, Holland says about this video game, ” I was such a big fan of the games, and he has such a distinct voice. And the nicest thing for me is that he’s been so supportive of me kind of inheriting this character and bringing in my new ideas and this new flavor to Nathan Drake.”
But is it really good to turn a video game into a movie? Well, generally producing a film based on video games has caused disasters several times. Usually, the content of the movie is awed as compared to its source. Sometimes, these kinds of films perform awful at the box office, and at other times, the actors are not able to match the character.
However, the fanbase of Tom Holland is enough to carry Uncharted to a good number of views.
