With “Uncharted,” Sony has now brought one of its most popular gaming brands to the movies, with “Spider-Man” star Tom Holland playing the lead role. On our podcast tour, the adventure of cinema is a positive surprise, even if it doesn’t all go well.
In “Uncharted,” Tom Holland stars as adventurer Nathan Drake and Mark Wahlberg as his mentor hunts down Sully around the world in search of a pot of gold. But whether the two superstars were the right ones for their roles was previously in doubt. After all, “Uncharted” is one of the most popular video game series of the past 15 years, with quick dialogues between Nate and Sully forming a crucial part of the magic. Also, video game mods for movies have a bad reputation anyway. Could Uncharted be a good movie?
To answer that question, FILMSTARTS editors Marcus and Benjamin sat down with Love Screen host Sebastian. In the podcast, the three “Uncharted” fans talk about their connection to the PlayStation adventures and whether Ruben Fleischer (“Zombieland” and “Venom”) screen adaptations of the legendary model could hold a candle.
Of course, the focus is on the typical “Uncharted” elements: movement, the search for treasures and the attraction of various adventures thirsty for gold. Finally, villain Moncada (Antonio Banderas), his minions Braddock (Tate Gabriel) and daring opportunist Chloe (Sofia Ali) hunt for treasure.

In the podcast, though, Mark Wahlberg in particular sheds fat, pitches ideas for adapting the game and describes at least one of the “Uncharted” trio as one of his favorite video game adaptations. And don’t worry: The discussion is spoiler-free. You can also listen if you haven’t seen the movie yet.
