Unexplored will be bringing his scavenger hunt to Netflix very soon. Last week, the streaming service announced an official release date for Sony’s adventure film, which originally premiered in theaters in February. Check out the Netflix release date for Unexplored below, as well as other ways to watch the film.
What is “Uncharted” about?
Unexplored is based on the popular PlayStation franchise of the same name. The film acts as a prequel to the video games, following a younger version of treasure hunter Nathan “Nate” Drake (Tom Holland) on his first adventure. He meets Victor “Sully” Sullivan (Mark Wahlberg), a seasoned treasure hunter who enlists Nate’s help in finding a $5 billion fortune originally discovered by Ferdinand Magellan.
Nate and Sully’s quest becomes a globetrotting race when Santiago Moncada (Antonio Banderas) reveals his own ruthless search for the treasure, believing it to rightfully belong to his family. Nate’s amateur skills and his sense of confidence are tested as he gets closer and closer to fortune.
Sophia Ali and Tati Gabrielle also star in Unexplored. Ruben Fleischer (zombieland, Venom) directed the film.
