“It’s not about the treasure but the quest and the people you share the adventure with!” : the lesson we learn thanks to Uncharted by Ruben Fleischer with Tom Holland playing the adventurer protagonist Nathan Drake. Inspired by the popular Videogame, Fleischer applied to the film all the cinematic homages and action movies rules to build the perfect combination that could talk to both the videogame fans and the blockbuster fans. In Rome to present the film with the Colisseum as a background, Fleischer also talks about how this experience on the film enriched his career as filmmaker.
Uncharted: Street-smart Nathan Drake (Tom Holland) is recruited by seasoned treasure hunter Victor “Sully” Sullivan (Mark Wahlberg) to recover a fortune amassed by Ferdinand Magellan and lost 500 years ago by the House of Moncada. What starts as a heist job for the duo becomes a globe-trotting, white-knuckle race to reach the prize before the ruthless Santiago Moncada (Antonio Banderas), who believes he and his family are the rightful heirs. If Nate and Sully can decipher the clues and solve one of the world’s oldest mysteries, they stand to find $5 billion in treasure and perhaps even Nate’s long-lost brother…but only if they can learn to work together.
