    I'm a little worried about them toning down things a bit too much as well. While Uncharted might not be the best comparison as it's relatively not as violent, one of the weird things the Tomb Raider movie reboot did is that they took the 2013 reboot-which is pretty much TEMPLE OF DOOM on steroids-and made into a relatively 'safe' PG-13. They kept the same basic look of Lara from the game (although made her more sassy and Jolie-esque than the frequently PTSD suffering Survivor Lara) and the concept of a lost Queen/Island but that was pretty much it.


    The first three games also had heavy supernatural elements but the Fourth game kind of ditched that (although the one in 3 was strongly implied to be some kind of hallucionagenic rather than anything mystical)

    I'm guessing they'll probably ease up on Drake killing thousands of mercenaries which is a frequent joke about the games.


    One thing I'm curious about is if the Scottish guy is actually Charlie Cutter, a double agent in the games.

    It would be nice to see Drake sunk an entire ancient city with a single bullet in this movie.

    Zorro has always been of Spanish, not Mexican, descent as far as I know. He's never been a person of color

    It's based when he's young, though, so I don't see the problem there. Unless fans want him to start out at 35 or something. Yeah, he doesn't look like Drake, but acting is more important.

    I'm not knocking Tom Holland's acting talent, but focusing on a younger version just feels weird for an Uncharted movie.

    He was specifically Mexican in the Banderas films. Not to mention his role in the Desperado series. Point being, nobody will have an issue with him playing a Peruvian.

    Too many elements from the game sequels are present here for me to buy into this being a young Drake.

    Ok, well, I see what you mean there. I guess they could've gone with an older actor to match the more well known version of him.

    Well, if he was playing a mixed-race Zorro, that didn't come off to me in the movies. Every main actor in those movies was White. Ultimately this is all probably a non-issue, but I wouldn't say 'nobody would have an issue with him.'

    I don't think this movie is a 1 to 1 adaptation anyway. Hollywood doesn't seem to do that with video games

    I've realized I'm just not interested in this film. I'm sorry, but watching the 2018 short The Uncharted Live Action Fan Film starring Nathan Fillion just has me convinced that that is the best approach to this film, to Drake, and to Sullivan. They decided they needed bigger younger names, it's a huge mistake, and will haunt the franchise for a long time.
    Thank you AMericA for votinG for chAnge in 2016.

    There's an interesting example with the Assassins Creed movie; since a good chunk of the games-especially at the time-deal with a new protagonist (at least in the past, although sometimes in the future there's anonymous ones instead of Desmond and the more recent Layla) and the Spanish Inquisition was also something not covered yet by any game, it became a 'side story' to the games although with some exposition to explain the basic concepts of some of the series (although it mostly doesn't bother with the Isu and the dialogue seems to suggest that it's the "only" Apple). There's even an e-mail I think in the "Origins" game that explains the unique Animus set up in the movie.

    I don't expect it to be 1 to 1 but to say this focuses on a younger Drake seem to imply the movie will connect to games. I don't think that will be the case.

    I figured it's like the Nolan Batman trilogy or the recent James Bond films. It's a younger version of the character that may or may not connect to the other version.



    The big difference is how he met Sully.

    I think it's just using a younger Drake with elements borrowed from different games
