Makers have released the trailer of Uncharted starring Spider-Man: Far from Home actor Tom Holland and Spencer Confidential star Mark Wahlberg. The upcoming action-packed film directed by Zombieland series veteran Ruben Fleischer is set to showcase Holland as a young adventurer cum fortune hunter Nathan Drake while Wahlberg will be seen in the character of his mentor, Sully. Actor Sophia Ali also features in the film as Chloe Frazer, who may have some romantic chemistry with Drake.
Uncharted is an adaptation of the popular Playstation video game franchise from Naughty Dog, which was launched in 2007. The film also stars Tati Gabrielle and Antonio Banderas in key roles.
Speaking of the challenges he faced playing the role in the much highly anticipated movie during an interview with British GQ, Holland said, "As soon as you start worrying about 'Do I look good in this shot?' acting becomes something other than playing a character," according to Variety.
"I think there are elements of my performance in Uncharted where I kind of fell under that spell of being 'I want to look good now. I want this to be my cool moment.' I had to play this very tough, very stoic guy â basically, be Mark Wahlberg," the Avengers: Endgame star adding that his character is "supposed to be a fucking action hero in this moment!"
"Look, I haven't seen it, so I don't know if I succeeded in that. But it was an important lesson learned, because, at times, it was less about land a mark and go through this scene and more about land a mark, stand like this and see my bulging biceps," Holland said.

In the video game, Holland's character Drake's older brother, who is believed to have died during an adventurous treasure hunt eventually appears in Chartered 4: A Thief's End to hanker Drake out of retirement toward the last adventure.
