Uncharted Poster Brings Holland and Wahlberg's Co-Stars Into the Spotlight

A new poster for the big-screen adaptation of Uncharted shines a light on the supporting characters joining Tom Holland's Nathan Drake on his treasure hunt.

Although much of the poster released by Sony Pictures focuses on Holland's Drake and Mark Wahlberg's Victor "Sully" Sullivan standing in front of a map backdrop, it also features three other cast members. In the center of the poster is veteran actor Antonio Banderas, who plays Moncada, the ruthless villain of the movie. Next to Banderas and holding a torch is Chloe Fraser (Sophia Ali), a fellow treasure hunter from the game series and a love interest for Drake. Standing in front with a weapon in hand is Braddock (Tati Gabrielle), a new character created for the movie.

Uncharted is a de facto prequel to the hugely popular action-adventure video game series that launched with Drake's Fortune in 2007 for the PlayStation 3. Holland plays a younger version of the Drake seen in the games, and the synopsis for the movie promises it will "[introduce] audiences to street-smart Nathan Drake and [showcase] his first treasure-hunting adventure with wisecracking partner Victor 'Sully' Sullivan." While the franchise has spawned four mainline games and several offshoots, there has yet to be any talk of any sequels to the upcoming film.

Despite the movie being a new adventure for Drake, trailers have shown scenes and settings taken straight from the games, such as an action sequence that pays homage to 2011's Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception. Holland spoke about how difficult he found the action scenes, despite his experience as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. "I never realized how lucky I am that Spider-Man wears a mask, because when he's bouncing around and flying from buildings, that's all CG," Holland said. "In Uncharted, it's just me in a henley and cargo pants."

Even with his own strict gym routine for Uncharted, Holland recently admitted to being intimidated by co-star Wahlberg's physique. "I saw him walk onto set in his costume and I was like, 'Fuck, he is twice my size," Holland recalled. "After the [COVID] lockdown, we had five months off, and I just ate and trained and ate and trained." Holland added that when the cast returned to the film's set, the first thing Wahlberg said to him was, "Wow, somebody has been training."

Uncharted is set for a Feb. 18 release date, despite theaters in several countries facing temporary closure due to the Omicron COVID surge.
