UNCHARTED Opens in PH Cinemas on February 23, 2022

For millions of PlayStation gamers, Nathan Drake and Victor “Sully” Sullivan are legendary characters whose stories they have lived out through their consoles in the “Uncharted” series of videogames - one of the biggest if not the biggest asset in Playstation's slate for the past two generations of the video gaming console. Now, in Columbia Pictures’ new action-adventure feature "Uncharted", moviegoers will see for the first time how the two joined forces and how a young Nathan Drake became the famed treasure hunter. For a series known for tying up cinema and gaming oh-so-well, can they hit the same mark the other way around?

Director Ruben Fleischer says it’s no secret why the “Uncharted” games have connected with millions of players and sold more than 44 million copies over six games: it plays like a movie, he says, and not just any movie – the kind they don’t make anymore. “Uncharted truly captures all of the magic of what I love about film,” says Fleischer. “I’ve dreamed of making a treasure-hunting, globe-trotting adventure since I was a kid. That kind of movie gave me a passion for history and antiquity – I even went to college thinking I was going to be an archaeologist. As soon as I read this script, it captured that magical quality of escapist adventure. I couldn’t believe how lucky I was to be asked to be part of something special.”
Tom Holland has been a fan of the games ever since he first got his hands on them with “Uncharted 4” in 2016. “I was shooting Spider-Man™: Homecoming, and one of the benefits of working with Sony is they outfitted all of our trailers with the newest PlayStation. One of the games they gave us was ‘Uncharted 4,’ so between setups, my best mate Harrison and I would be playing. We played the game backwards – once we fell in love with the fourth, we bought the other games and caught up.
In Philippine cinemas February 23, Uncharted is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.  Use the hashtag #UnchartedMovie
