As it moves from a blockbuster video game franchise to the big screen, it’s Unexploredchance to reach a whole other entertainment space.
PlayStation owners have had many outings with series protagonist Nathan Drake, uncovering ancient and modern mysteries, stealing artifacts, hanging from ledges, and sneaking into a joke for every villain they shoot.
It is Indiana Jones, his The Mummy and now he is also following in the cinema’s footsteps of similar success from game to film Grave robber.
Since the first Unexplored game, the series was known for its awesome action sequences, and we expect those to be the focus of the film.
Here’s everything we know so far.
Unexplored Movie casting
If you played Unexplored games and get a strong Brendan Frasier in The Mummy ambiance, so well done, that was the right reaction. But that’s not the direction Columbia Pictures wanted to go.
In the big-screen adaptation, Tom Holland stars as Nathan Drake, with his spider-making sense replaced by the power of luck. The humor will be about the same, however. Combine that with the fact that Mark Wahlberg will be playing Sully and you have two actors who look a lot younger than their roles.
This makes sense given that the film is inspired by Unexplored 4, which is set years before the first Unexplored Thu. (More plot info below.)

Tom Holland’s performance has already been praised by Nathan Drake’s voice actor Nolan North: âHe’s enthusiastic, he’s so athletic, he’s an amazing dancer, he’s actually done a lot of stunts. His physical intelligence is off the chain.
Holland himself admitted he was worried about his own performance, saying, “It was an important lesson learned, because sometimes it was less about landing a mark and going through that stage and more. to land a mark, to stand like that and to see my bulging bicepsâ¦ It was a mistake and it’s something I’ll probably never do again.
Our bet is that Holland is simply humble and thoughtful.

Meanwhile, Antonio Banderas will play a supporting role and Sophia Ali will play Chloe, the interest somewhat not always in love with Drake. Oddly enough, Ali was also in a short film titled Drake’s Bell, in which her role was literally called “Love Interest”. But most people will remember her since Grey’s Anatomy like Dr Dahlia Qadri.
Director Ruben Fleischer has walked the gamut of jobs and genres. He has executive producer and director credits on The daring type, Santa Clarita Diet, Zombieland: double tap, The mule, Hypermarket, Venom and Venom 2: Let There Be Carnage.
Fleischer ends the project after losing six directors across his entire production schedule.
When Unexplored Go out?
After a long, long wait, Unexplored will release in the United States on February 18, 2022 and IMAX and 3D versions will accompany its normal version.
Event Cinemas has the Australian release date of February 17th.
what Unexplored On?
The fact that the actors are younger than they should be gives us a clue that only half makes sense. The Unexplored the film is a prequel, but with a plot based on the fourth Unexplored Thu. The events of the film precede the start of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, the first one Unexplored Game.
As Tom Holland told Den of Geek, âFor fans who love games, they get a side of the story that they haven’t seen before. People who haven’t played the games are given a very good introduction to a character. It sort of works for everyone.
Chloe was meant to be a darker side of Nathan Drake and somewhat of a foil, while her other romantic interest, Elena, was meant to be a healthier, more moral character. Elena was too good for Drake (despite their marriage) and Chloe was too bad for Drake.
So, Chloe’s presence (and no mention of Elena) tells us that Nathan might be drawn into some things that he would prefer not to by this bad influence. That said, in the Unexplored games, Chloe had a long character arc towards more selfless and compassionate, so maybe that will play out in the movie as well.
Dynamics are clearly important to the writers here, as Chloe wasn’t originally in Unexplored 4. Elena was the main romantic interest there, as in most shows.
We do not know precisely how the Unexplored the film will follow the plot of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, but the game follows the Drake Brothers as they search for pirate Henry Avery’s lost treasure, competing with rival treasure hunters, brokers, mercenary bosses, and governments along the way.
The quest says a lot about the history of the Drake family, as well as their future. Elena and Nathan accept that adventure is in their blood, and they stop trying to stray from that lifestyle.
Should I have played the games?
The Unexplored the movie will be standalone, so playing the games is not essential. It offers additional information and a backstory for Unexploredthe main characters and the world of, but will have no prior knowledge.
There will be a strange Easter Egg and a benchmark for players who have spent years with the franchise, but it will remain in the realm of the non-essential. When you hear someone screaming in the movies at a weird time, you know who Unexplored fan is, and they just spotted an Easter egg.
We will update this article over time and learn more about the Unexplored movie.
