Update: Just a couple of days after being added to Netflix, the Uncharted movie has climbed straight to the top of the streaming service’s charts. It’s an impressive feat, given it’s up against strong competition from the likes of The Gray Man and Purple Hearts. The movie, of course, already enjoyed a tremendously successful cinematic run – but there’s been no word on a sequel just yet, despite Sony describing it as a “new hit movie franchise”.
Original Story: Six months after a very successful, $400 million theatrical run, Sony Pictures’ action-packed Uncharted movie has been added to the Netflix catalogue in the United States. The film, which stars Tom Holland as the cheeky pick-pocket Nathan Drake, offers a fun adaptation of Naughty Dog’s buccaneering brand with some spectacular set-pieces, making it perfect popcorn viewing.
We were generally quite positive about the flick in our Movie Review: “You just have to take Uncharted for what it is: an explosive joyride through idyllic backdrops with plenty of eye-candy (Holland spends at least a fifth of the film with his shirt off, and it’s clear he’s been living on a diet of Grenade bars and fried chicken judging by the size of his chest),” we said.
Unfortunately, there’s no sign of the film in the UK Netflix catalogue just yet, and no word of when it might be available on these shores. Of course, in this era of VPNs, you may still be able to tune in with a little know how. Will you be going on a treasure hunt with Tom Holland this weekend?
