Sony spent about five weeks shooting Uncharted’s plane set-piece, which will appear in the upcoming movie after first appearing in Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. According to star Tom Holland, who plays Nathan Drake in the film, it’s by far the most gruelling action sequence he’s ever filmed – which is impressive considering he also plays the acrobatic Spider-Man.
It’s quite interesting to see some behind-the-scenes footage of how this was actually shot. For example, the boxes are attached to giant claw-like machines, with massive fans blowing against them to create the effect of wind. It’s always fascinating when you’re able to “peel back the curtain” of wild stunts like this one.
