Tom Holland is a dashing young fortune hunter in Uncharted trailer

Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg star as fortune hunters in Uncharted, an origin story for the hugely popular video game franchise.

Sony Pictures has released the official trailer for Uncharted, its long-awaited adaptation based on the hugely popular action/adventure video game franchise of the same name. Movies based on video game franchises can be hit or miss, even when the games themselves are awesome. And this one has been stuck in development hell since 2008, with multiple shifts in writers, directors, and cast members. But the finished film also stars Tom Holland and is directed by Ruben Fleischer, who gave us Zombieland and Zombieland: Double Tap. And the trailer has plenty of action and humor, so color us intrigued by Uncharted.

(Some spoilers for the games below.)

Created by Amy Hennig and developed by Naughty Dog, the original Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune debuted on PlayStation 3 in 2007. Several more games followed, all receiving critical acclaim, and the franchise has sold over 41 million copies worldwide to date. The main protagonist is professional treasure hunter Nathan Drake, who claims to be a descendent of English explorer Francis Drake. The other primary characters are Victor “Sully” Sullivan, a former US Navy officer who becomes Nate’s mentor and father figure; investigative journalist Elena Fisher, who becomes Nate’s romantic partner; and Chloe Frazer, a reckless adventurer who serves as a foil to Elena.
