Sony has released a new special featurette of behind-the-scenes clips of Tom Holland’s stunt scenes on Uncharted.
The excitement of Uncharted is at an all-time high, as Sony Pictures’ upcoming action-adventure film premieres in a few weeks. Uncharted is based on a series of successful video games created by the video game company Naughty Dog, all of which focused on treasure hunter Nathan Drake and his many dangerous adventures.
The games featured Drake hunting legendary treasures of ancient cities such as The Golden City Of El Dorado, The Cintamani Stone of Shambala, The Lost City Of Iram Of The Pillars, and Pirate Henry Avery’s Legendary Treasure. When Tom Holland got cast as Nathan Drake, excitement for the upcoming film magnified.
Sony Shares More Uncharted Secrets
Sony Pictures released a new unique and hilarious featurette that features Holland and his brother Harry showcasing his talents. The clip features Harry giving a what-to-do list for Tom on a day filming Uncharted. The list involves all of the many stunts that Tom got asked to do and did while filming.
The featurette shows multiple clips of Holland doing his actions for specific scenes. Those clips include Tom fighting villains on a pirate ship alongside Mark Wahlberg’s Sully, a shot where he gets thrown off a table, a bar scene where he smashes a bad guy’s face with a bottle, the plane scene where Tom gets hit by a car, and where he jumps and swings from a chandelier.
Overall this special featurette shows that Holland’s casting as Drake was an ideal choice mainly because of his skills in stuntwork and acrobatics. Nathan Drake’s relatability with players made him a beloved character in the original video game series. Even though Drake was a wisecracking treasure hunter, he had a heart and a moral code of honor. But also because of his incredible action sequences in the video games. Fans hope they can see those action sequences honored and performed by Tom in the upcoming Uncharted film.
