Nathan Fillion Made An Uncharted Fan-Film, And It's Excellent

The official Uncharted movie may be stuck in development hell forever, but actor Nathan Fillion and his crew have made their own 15-minute tribute to the iconic action-adventure franchise. It is wonderful.

The story is too old to be commented.

That's a class act..

Nathan.. Meet Nathan...

CloudStrife900127d ago

You can never go wrong with either of those Nathans

Am I the only one that thinks he runs like a 60-year-old?

Otherwise this wasn't bad if it didn't shine a light on the cheesy way scenarios can seem when transferred from gaming to Cinema. I do appreciate the fan service in it, though (Kitty got wet, for example).

NealGamby126d ago

Yea, I loved it, but it wasn't perfect. If this is greenlit, Fillion would probably get in better shape and lose a few pounds, making his running seem less stiff. Also, it looks a little too clean, which a bigger budget and some post production film grain would help.

ChrisW126d ago

Years ago fans of Firefly/Serenity and Uncharted were absolutely wanting this.

thorstein126d ago

We are still wanting this.

And now we have the greatest video game to movie adaptation so far.

CloudStrife900127d ago (Edited 127d ago )

Honestly, this is fantastic! Why is it that fan-made projects ( games > movie/trailers/shorts ) are always 1000000% better than the offerings we get from giant corporates? O_o

I didn't downvote you but, your absolutism is a reason why I believe you get negative votes. That absoultism itself is trollish on your end. This "always" and "1000000% better" just screams that type comment I see on IGN , "I know how to make it better crap". Just the fact that most trailers are so good that they get us to see crappy movies proves your point wrong. Just the fact Pixar shorts are better than most other full-length films (or fan made) from other animation studios proves your point wrong. Just the fact that much fan-based content mostly runs on pure an utter crap of fandom. Not all are bad and certainly, not all are "always" good as you state. It just simple most fan-made projects are really pretty bad, self-indulgent, badly acted, and often screw with canon. Yes, there is some really good fan made projects but, that is the minority and not the norm. There are dozens of fan films made of Star Wars and Star Trek over the years that prove my point.

Sure, and people upvote for things the same way. Are you calling them out for upvoting but, not explaining why or just those that downvote? That is the consequence of putting your opinion out there. Some agree some don't.

He was just putting into words the kind of phrases that we all say in everyday conversation... Obviously he wasn't really saying 100000% better. Come on give the guy a break. I think what he meant was fan based passion wins out over corporate/business every time (oops I just did it).

I kinda disagree with your comment on trailers though, I think it's not hard to see through the bullshit and determine if a film is bad, despite a big budget and swanky cinematography...

On topic, love Nathan fillion, loved firefly and think he would be perfect for the role (if he got in shape) :)

Fans put passion and respect before dollars. Corporations on the other hand....

dumahim127d ago

Even if we can only get 1 movie out of him as Drake, I'm all for it.

-Foxtrot127d ago (Edited 127d ago )

The Uncharted film with Tom Holland hasn't even began shooting and this shits all over it, it's Uncharted and well done for a fan film.

Why don't they put a fan film together using Nolan, Emily and Richard though, I'd love to see them in live action.

firelogic127d ago (Edited 127d ago )

It boggles my mind why they're starting off the film (series?) with young Drake. That isn't Uncharted. In the games young Drake works because we know adult Drake, those kid sequences don't last very long, and it's fun to see where he came from. An entire movie revolving around young Drake is asinine. If it bombs (and it will) the people outside of gaming will never see the true appeal of Uncharted because they'll never make another one.

Tankbusta40127d ago

Because they envision 40 sequels(you know typical Hollywood greed) so they cast the Spiderman dork so he can grow with the role. Won't work if the first movie sucks but hey Hollywood doesn't think that way.

-Foxtrot127d ago

I know...young Drake were the worst sections in the games, they were so slow and you just wanted to get back into the action

I'm more annoyed they chose someone who looks and acts nothing like him but it wouldn't have mattered who they chose, no one likes young actors in these types of films they always come more cheesy then they are.

Lord_Sloth126d ago (Edited 126d ago )

Drake was born in 76 and Fortune came out in 07. Assuming that the year matches up that makes him 31 which puts Holland (22) closer to his age than Fillion (47). Not saying that Fillion isn't a great fit for Drake but they can potentially get more movies out of Holland as a bumbling action hero given his youth.

Let's not assume the movie will be crap until we see something from it.

-Foxtrot126d ago

Let’s not assume? Despite every video game film being between awful to below average

Sure man...

I don’t care how old Holland is he looks and has never acted nothing like Drake in any of his roles. Nothing that screams “Oh wow he could play Nathan Drake”

MWH126d ago (Edited 126d ago )

Part of why the Marvel movies are so successful is because the character casting in general was well received by most fans of the comics of all ages.

Holland bears no resemblance to Drake in looks, charisma or character.

UNCHARTED2FANATIC126d ago

You're telling me they are casting tom holland instead of this guy?? Wat a joke

UNCHARTED2FANATIC126d ago

I don't know why you always get so many dislikes you are always spot on especially when it comes to uncharted

-Foxtrot126d ago (Edited 126d ago )

Because if you say something which can be looked like as an attack against the franchise as a whole people don’t like it

Fans are fickle

syphon32126d ago

I like nolan ... but lets be honest Nathan Fillion is Nathan Drake... before i knew the truth i thought they modeled drake after fillion... for starters the appearance is uncanny between the two even down to mannerism and facial quirks.... I like North and he does a great job voice acting drake.... But Fillion is Drake..

-Foxtrot126d ago

So the guy who actually plays Drake in the games is not Drake to you?

Right.
