Uncharted’s first trailer sends Tom Holland on an adventure

In 2007, Sony introduced video game players to Nathan “Nate” Drake, the modern-day Indiana Jones. And over the course of four Uncharted games, we got to see Nate live up to that billing through a series of thrilling adventures that took place all over the world. Next year, Sony Pictures is celebrating the franchise’s 15th anniversary with a live-action Uncharted film. And now, the first Uncharted trailer has arrived.

Tom Holland, the star of Marvel and Sony’s Spider-Man films, is stepping into the role of Nathan Drake for the film. As you may have noticed, Holland is significantly younger than Nate’s video game counterpart. That’s why the movie is being described as a prequel to the games. Although if the first meeting between Nate and his mentor, Victor “Sully” Sullivan (Mark Wahlberg), is any indication, then it looks like the film is playing a little fast and loose with the backstory and mythos.

Sharp-eyed viewers may note a few callbacks to the games, including a scene where Nate is literally holding on for dear life on a plane that’s rapidly losing its cargo in the air. This is very similar to a sequence from Uncharted 3, and it’s not the only reference to the games within this footage. Nate’s ring is prominently featured as well.

The story finds Nate and Sully on a globe-trotting adventure that sends them after “the greatest treasure never found.” But there’s also a personal connection for Nate. His long-missing brother, Sam Drake, sought out the treasure himself years before. And perhaps Nate will finally reunite with Sam if he can locate the treasure. Unfortunately for Nate, he’s not the only one who wants it.

Sophia Taylor Ali is also starring in the film as Chloe Frazer, a rival treasure hunter and possible love interest for Nate. In the games, Nate and Chloe were partners and lovers, and she even went on to headline her own game, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.

Antonio Banderas will also star in the film as an even more ruthless treasure hunter, which makes him the villain to both Nate and Chloe. But for now, we don’t know much about Banderas’ character or even his name.

Ruben Fleischer directed Uncharted from a screenplay by Rafe Judkins, Art Marcum, and Matt Holloway. It will hit theaters on February 18, 2022.

Timothée Chalamet becomes a candy legend in Wonka’s first trailer
Timothée Chalamet in Wonka.

It's going to be a busy fall for Timothée Chalamet. In November, Chalamet is headlining the highly-anticipated sci-fi sequel, Dune: Part Two from Warner Bros. and Legendary. And just over a month later, Warner Bros. will release Wonka, Chalamet's second film of the holiday season. Gene Wilder and Johnny Depp previously portrayed the iconic candy maker in 1971 and 2005 within Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, respectively. But this new film isn't a remake, it's essentially Wonka Begins, the previously untold origin of Roald Dahl's unforgettable character.

In The Conjuring universe, few monsters inspire more terror than Valak, the demonic creature colloquially known as the Nun. Valak can take on more than one form, but he, or it, seems to really enjoy taking this one. Horror movie fans have also been taken by the Nun, which received its own spinoff movie in 2018 that served as a prequel to The Conjuring films. This fall, The Nun 2 will follow up on the events of that film as Valak returns to terrorize the innocent once again.

Have you ever wanted to stick it to the rich and make a lot of money at the same time? In 2021, a number of armchair investors and gamers did exactly that during the infamous GameStop stock squeeze. For a brief period, it looked like the proverbial little guy had taken on the hedge fund managers and mega stockbrokers -- and won. Or at least until the stock bubble burst. This fall, Sony is dramatizing the entire experience in Dumb Money, and the first trailer has been released. Fair warning, this is a Red Band R-rated trailer, and there's some very NSFW language ahead.
