After fans were treated to a brand new image from Sony Pictures’ long-awaited Uncharted movie earlier this week, the first footage of the long-in-development film adaptation of Naughty Dog’s hit video game series has finally been revealed in Sony’s new promotional video that highlights each division of the company. Although it’s only a brief snippet of the upcoming film, it still provides us with a new look at Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg’s chemistry as Nathan Drake and Victor Sullivan.
The film is currently slated to arrive in theaters on February 18, 2022, which sees the action-adventure film going up against two competitors in the form of Paramount Pictures’ new animated film Rumble and Michael Bay’s newest action-thriller Ambulance starring Jake Gyllenhaal.
