Sony’s Uncharted movie has crossed $225 million at the worldwide box office just a couple of weeks after it debuted in UK cinemas, which means it’s on the right path to getting a sequel off the ground.
The Tom Holland-fronted action-adventure epic enjoyed a solid start in US cinemas one week ago, to the point where Sony described it as a “new hit movie franchise.” Couple that with the obvious sequel bait during the credits, it’s only a matter of time at this point that a follow-up will be greenlit.
Uncharted hoovered up another $35 million this weekend, bringing its total to $226.4 million at the worldwide box office. In terms of video game movies, this is a strong figure, although we’ll have to see whether it tops the likes of Sonic the Hedgehog or not.
Set some years before the events of the games, the Uncharted film depicts a younger Nathan Drake (Holland) as he teams up with future mentor Victor ‘Sully’ Sullivan (Mark Wahlberg) to unearth a long-lost treasure.
