Flying boats, piles of gold, broken chandeliers, a super cute cat—the new Uncharted trailer contains multitudes. It also features Tom Holland’s earnest attempt at intoning “This ain’t over,” which may in fact be the least threatening “This ain’t over” ever uttered.
Director Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) is at the helm of this video game adaptation, which is technically a prequel to the actual games, and sets up the relationship between Nathan Drake (Tom Holland) and the older and presumably more experienced Sully (Mark Wahlberg). Sully is, I am given to understand, supposed to have a mustache. Perhaps he simply hasn’t grown it yet. Perhaps he earns it, somehow, after flying a boat over a beautiful teal expanse of ocean. Do explorers get mustaches like Boy Scouts get merit badges?
Here’s the summary:
Street-smart Nathan Drake is recruited by seasoned treasure hunter Victor “Sully” Sullivan to recover a fortune amassed by Ferdinand Magellan and lost 500 years ago by the House of Moncada. What starts as a heist job for the duo becomes a globe-trotting, white-knuckle race to reach the prize before the ruthless Santiago 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.
Along with Holland, Wahlberg, and Banderas, Uncharted stars Tati Gabrielle (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, The 100) and Sophia Ali (The Wilds). It’s in theaters February 11th.
