The Uncharted movie gets one last trailer

A thief’s origin.

There’s not much time left until Uncharted  hits theaters, and Sony Pictures wants everyone to know it.

In what is probably Uncharted’s  final trailer, we get a clearer look at what the story entails. Much like Paramount’s Halo TV seriesUncharted isn’t following any of the plotlines from the games. Instead, it’s a prequel explaining how Nathan Drake (Tom Holland) came to be the dashing rogue we all know and love. Loads of  bad video game adaptations  deviate from the source material, so hopefully, this one isn’t following suit.

Check out the last Uncharted  trailer for yourself below, or head over to YouTube for a high-quality mirror  here.

Filming Uncharted  was brutal  for Tom Holland, evident by all those  giant blue cubes  beating the actor up. Though if nothing else, moviegoers are probably in for loads of quality stuns and set pieces. It’s fitting since Uncharted  has always cribbed from classic films like Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Coinciding with this trailer is the release of the Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves  collection  on PS5, which brings together Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End  and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy  into  one beautiful package. Anyone with  PS4 files data can transfer  their data to PS5 too. 

Uncharted is coming out on Feb. 18 exclusively in theaters.

Sean Payton makes a cameo as a janitor in ‘Home Team’ and I am LOSING MY MIND

Sean Payton’s cameo in “Home Team” is one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen.

If you’ve come here looking for an in-depth review of Home Team, the newly released Netflix movie where Kevin James — yes, THAT Kevin James —plays former New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton, I can’t give you that.  I’m not trying to be blatantly disrespectful or anything — it’s just it was released like six hours ago and people have to sleep.

However, I’m online enough to know by now the movie is as unintentionally funny as we all expected it to be, and while I can’t say I had planned on seeing it, even for hate-watch reasons, Payton’s end-of-film cameo in which he plays a janitor (and sports a truly horrendous wig) just might change my mind.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

A second Mortal Kombat film is in the works from Moon Knight’s writer

Test your might (again).

The Mortal Kombat  film reboot took theaters by storm last year, and Warner Brothers are moving ahead on a sequel.

A report from Deadline  confirmed that Mortal Kombat 2  is happening, with screenwriter Jeremy Slater already on board to pen the script. Not much else is known about the movie at this time, but 2021’s Mortal Kombat  is among the  best video game adaptations, so it’s exciting news nonetheless.

Slater’s writing credits include Marvel Studio’s upcoming  TV series Moon Knight, which debuts March 30 on Disney+. He didn’t work on Mortal Kombat  2021, but folks attached to the production are happy about his inclusion. Producer Todd Garner even shared a teaser image for Mortal Kombat 2  that you can check out below.

The sequel is likely a couple of years away, but in the meantime, Mortal Kombat 11  is free(ish) on several subscription services right now. For  PS4 and PS5 owners, PlayStation Now has the game for  the rest of January. Meanwhile, Game Pass subscribers get access to Mortal Kombat 11  on the  Xbox side of things  too.

Hopefully, Mortal Kombat 2  maintains the first movie’s level of quality and doesn’t end up as yet another  terrible video game adaptation. Perhaps this is the movie  The Rock was teasing — pure speculation on our part, mind you.

Tom Holland gets beat up by giant blue cubes in Uncharted

A tough shoot indeed.

We’ve already heard about how Uncharted  nearly broke Tom Holland, but now there’s video proof of his soon-to-be-legendary tumbles.

In a new featurette, the Spider-Man: No Way Home  star talks about how physically demanding Uncharted  was to film. Unlike Spider-Man, Holland did the vast majority of his stunt work, mainly because he wasn’t wearing a mask. Every on-screen thwack and summersault pack a little extra oomph of authenticity.

Particularly the cargo plane scene ripped straight out of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, where Holland ate a few giant bluescreen cubes while on set. It’s pretty wild, so make sure to check it out below.

Curiously, there appears to be quite a bit in Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception  influence on the movie. The poster even  mimics the game’s original PS3 cover art. Interestingly enough, the director of Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation  said the airplane sequence in Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception  influenced his film as well.

Time will tell in a genuine Uncharted  film will do it better, but first, the movie needs to prove if it’s a  decent video game adaptation. We’ll find out for sure when Uncharted  comes to theaters on Feb. 18, 2022.

Anyone looking to brush up on the series would be wise to check out the Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves  collection dropping on PS5 this Friday.

The Uncharted movie gets a second trailer

Holland swings about as usual.

The second trailer for Uncharted  is here, and it’s every bit as action-packed as the video games.

With the entire world still caught up in Spider-Man: No Way Home  hype, Sony Pictures thought it best to give the people a bit more Tom Holland just in time for the holidays. Sure, the  Uncharted  film left Holland battered and broken, but that didn’t stop him from delivering solid performance as the ever-so charismatic Nathan Drake. At least, if this trailer is any indication, many people  weren’t huge fans of his look on the film’s poster.

You can check out the trailer for Uncharted  below. 

Have to say Holland as Nathan Drake is growing on me here.

There’s a decent number of references towards the games in this one. Obviously, the big one is Holland flying out the back of an airplane like what happened to Nathan Drake in Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception

I’m not seeing anything echoing what happened in the later series entries, though if you want to experience those, it might be best just to check out the  Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves  collection on PS5. It contains both Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End  and  Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.

Three takeaways from the new Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness trailer

Let’s dig into the latest from Doctor Strange.

The Marvel train keeps moving, this time with the first official trailer for this spring’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Benedict Cumberbatch returns as the titular Doctor Strange after making an appearance in the red hot Spider-Man: No Way Home that hit theaters on December 17. This is the second Strange movie, and it will build on storylines from Doctor Strange, Infinity War, Endgame, the Disney+ series WandaVision, and more.

This trailer was included as a post-credit scene in No Way Home, and A LOT happens. Sam Raimi — who directed the Tobey Maguire Spider-Man trilogy and several horror flicks — is at the helm of Doctor Strange’s sophomore entry into the MCU, and his impact is felt throughout.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is set to release May 6, 2022.

Check out the trailer, and let’s talk about what to make of this.

Note: This post contains spoilers for the MCU, including No Way Home.

 

I rewatched the entire MCU to get ready for ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home.’ Here’s what I learned.

The MCU from Captain America: The First Avenger to Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Spider-Man: No Way Home swung into theaters Thursday night, giving movie fans a semblance of the experience from pre-pandemic times as raucous crowds cheered, cried, and clapped at each turn. This is the 27th movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a behemoth that has spanned 13 years, multiple characters, and brought in over $23 billion worldwide.

In order to prepare for the third entry of this Spider-Man saga, I rewatched all 30 bits of content, starting with Captain America: The First Avenger and ending with the latest episode of the Hawkeye series on Disney+ before heading to a 6pm showing of No Way Home.

Here are some things I learned along the way, and if you want to see all my thoughts, check out the thread that starts here:
