After more than a decade in development and several directors, release dates, and scripts, the Uncharted movie increasingly seems like it may actually, really, for real become a movie we can watch, thanks in part to our first actual footage (via Twitter user @Nibellion).
The sneak peek is in this YouTube video from Sony (timestamped here if you want to skip right to it). Get excited:
Did you blink? If so, you might have missed everything that happened. I made a GIF to make sure you can see it.
Okay, so maybe the two whole seconds here aren’t that exciting. And disappointingly, none of the footage shows any of the Indiana Jones-inspired action for which the Uncharted game series is known.
But seeing Tom Holland’s Nathan Drake and Mark Wahlberg’s Sully actually appearing on camera is a promising sign that the Uncharted movie will really come out after years in development hell. And better yet, this is the second shred of evidence we’ve seen this week that the movie is real: The New York Times published a new photo of Holland and Walhberg in a scene together on Monday.
The movie is currently set to release on February 18th, 2022. Here’s hoping.
