While also impressing my fellow Illuminerdi journalists. We will also introduce a unique alcohol concoction in honor of Uncharted star and Nathan Drake himself Tom Holland. So yes Alcohol will play a role during this Let’s Play Livestream.

The Uncharted games were pivotal to the success of the Playstation 3. The video game series also helped propel Naughty Dog’s reputation as an exceptionally respected game developer. The Uncharted games are a great series because of their story, characters, and gameplay. I hope our Let’s Play shows viewers how beautiful and unique these games are. For anyone who hasn’t played the games, all of them are available in the Uncharted: Thieves Collection for PS5. Hopefully, the upcoming Uncharted film will add to the legacy of the original video game series when it releases in theaters worldwide on February 18th.

The Journey Of Uncharted

The Illuminerdi Uncharted Lets Play Live Stream Announcement - The Illuminerdi

Uncharted is one of gaming’s most successful video game franchises. The video game series was created by Amy Henning and developed by Naughty Dog. The series is acclaimed because of its excellent story, gameplay, writing, and characters. The franchise consists of four mainline games, a prequel, and two spin-offs. Those games are Golden Abyss, Drake’s Fortune, Among Thieves, Drake’s Deception, A Thief’s End, Lost Legacy, and Fight For The Fortune. The mainline series focuses on protagonist Nathan Drake. Drake is beloved by many because of his charming personality, intellect, witty humor, and heart. 

When Sony Pictures announced that they would develop an Uncharted film back in 2008, fans were excited. The film took years to develop. The reason for the film’s development hell because multiple cast members, writers, and directors were attached to the project on various points. Originally, filmmakers Travis Knight, Neil Burger, Seth Gordon, David O. Russell, Dan Trachtenberg, and Shawn Levy were initially signed to direct. The film also has undergone numerous script rewrites.

However, once the studio found its director, Ruben Fleischer, and their main star, Tom Holland, the film started its long-awaited production. The studio also cast Mark Wahlberg as Drake’s mentor Sully and Sophia Ali as Chloe Frazer, one of Drake’s love interests in the games. Antonio Banderas will play the film’s antagonist Moncada. The film focuses on Drake and his allies trying to find the lost gold of historic explorer Ferdinand Magellan.

The film focuses on Drake and his allies (Wahlberg and Ali) trying to find the lost gold of historic explorer Ferdinand Magellan. However, a ruthless treasure hunter (Banderas) and his mercenaries are also looking for the lost gold. The film will have many elements and nods to video games, especially A Thief’s End. The Uncharted film premieres next week, and we at The Illuminerdi are excited about its worldwide premiere.  Tickets for Uncharted are available now.

OFFICIAL UNCHARTED PLOT SYNOPSIS:

Sony Pictures Releases New Treacherous Uncharted Characters Posters Featuring Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg - The Illuminerdi

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.

Based on one of the best-selling, critically-acclaimed video game series, Uncharted introduces audiences to the young street-smart Nathan Drake (Tom Holland) and showcases his first treasure hunting adventure with wisecracking partner and mentor Victor “Sully” Sullivan (Mark Wahlberg). In this action-adventure epic that spans the globe, the duo are in dangerous pursuit of “the greatest treasure never found” while also tracking clues that may lead to Nathan’s long-lost brother.

Uncharted is scheduled to premiere on February 11th, 2022 in the United Kingdom and February 18th, 2022 in the United States and Worldwide. Uncharted stars Tom Holland, Mark Wahlberg, Antonio Banderas, Sophia Ali, and Tati Gabrielle. The film will be produced by Rafe Judkins, Art Marcum, and Matt Holloway. The film will also be produced by Charles Roven, Avi Arad, and Alex Gartner. The screenplay is by Rafe Judkins, Art Marcum, and Matt Halloway. Cinematography by Chung-Hoon Chung. Editing by Richard Pearson. The film will be directed by Richard Pearson.
