Final “Uncharted” Trailer Finds Tom Holland Hanging By a Thread
The final trailer for Uncharted has arrived, charting the adventures of Nathan Drake (Tom Holland), a thief tapped by treasure hunter Victor “Sully” Sullivan (Mark Wahlberg) to help him track down a bounty worth a cool $5 billion. The film, from director Ruben Fleischer (Venom), is adapted from the hugely popular PlayStation game and is Holland’s first role since he starred in the world-beating Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Holland is ideally suited to play Drake, the wise-cracking thief with a penchant for getting into trouble that’s way, way over his head. We’ve already shared just how serious the stunt work was on Uncharted, which has a swashbuckling vibe reminiscent of Indiana Jones, the most beloved treasure-seeking action-adventure franchise of all time. (A hat tip to another outstanding treasure-obsessed film, Goonies.)
The final trailer revels in Uncharted‘s straightforward, old-school action vibe, with Holland and Wahlberg pairing up to beat a slew of villains to find “the greatest treasure never found.” The film will center not just on the adventure, but the relationship between Drake and Sully, with Drake becoming Sully’s protégé. Drake might be good at lifting things that don’t belong to him, but he’s got a lot to learn from Sully, including how to survive goons hellbent on beating you to the treasure at any cost.
Joining Holland and Wahlberg are Antonio Banderas as the film’s big villain, Moncada, and Tati Gabrielle as the mercenary Braddock. After a bunch of delays, Uncharted is finally ready to hit theaters on February 18.

Here’s the synopsis for Uncharted:
Street-smart thief Nathan Drake (Tom Holland) is recruited by seasoned treasure hunter Victor “Sully” Sullivan (Mark Wahlberg) to recover a fortune lost by Ferdinand Magellan 500 years ago. What starts as a heist job for the duo becomes a globe-trotting, white-knuckle race to reach the prize before the ruthless Moncada (Antonio Banderas), who believes he and his family are the rightful heirs. If Nate and Sully can decipher the clues and solve one of the world’s oldest mysteries, they stand to find $5 billion in treasure and perhaps even Nate’s long-lost brother…but only if they can learn to work together.
