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.
That's a class act.. Nathan.. Meet Nathan...
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).
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.
Years ago fans of Firefly/Serenity and Uncharted were absolutely wanting this.
We are still wanting this. And now we have the greatest video game to movie adaptation so far.
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. @CloudStrife900 " someone logs onto this site every day and just dislikes comments in their lunch hour for the sake of it... " @KwietStorm "If this site had a reply system worth enough of a damn to actually reply to who you're talking to" 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....
Even if we can only get 1 movie out of him as Drake, I'm all for it.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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”
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.
You're telling me they are casting tom holland instead of this guy?? Wat a joke
I don't know why you always get so many dislikes you are always spot on especially when it comes to uncharted
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
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..
So the guy who actually plays Drake in the games is not Drake to you? Right.
Oh, I would DEFINITELY watch a full movie of this!
I'd watch a mini series of this.
This was great
So, does that mean, if I care deeply about you, you’ll leave? Lmbo. Nathan Drake would so say that! Nolan North will ALWAYS be Nathan Drake to me. But for a film, Nathan Fillion has done a respectable job & good job at bringing drake to film. I wanna see what happens next lol
He just needs to work on his running lol
Lol. Yes, that running was something else...
Thank you! Looked like he was running with a full diaper on.
I feel like Fillion nailed the tone in some scenes here. For example the scene where he jumped out of the window. The fight scenes were a little too much on the comedic side imo. Overall it's pretty good considering the budget is probably relatively small.
Petition time. Not sure about Stephen Lang playing Sully or whoever played Chloe. But Nathan as Nathan is perfect.
That wasn't Chloe. That was Elena.
Haha, my mistake. Chloe is the posh one with the brunette hair. Yeah, all the same, whoever that was wasn't a good choice for Elena at all.
Dude, he is Nathan Drake..from the appearance even down to funny quips...
Great made but doesn't really feel like like Nathan drake or uncharted
I agree. I always thought he'd make a good Nathan Drake, Fillion, but not anymore. The only thing that felt a bit like Uncharted was the sequence at the end.
Well that could be the problem with video game movies. You and a lot of others want a shot for shot remake with the same magic as the games. Remember, games are played for months and you grow into the story and characters. A Movie needs to put 20 - 50 hours of gaming into less than 2 hours. The only video game that would work is A Way Out. 5 hour game makes a good 2 hours movie.
Only problem is this was actual reenactment of the game even down to the mannerisms so it was definitely uncharted
But the feel was not there, Fillion feels wrong and so does sully, it's not about making everything look like uncharted it's about making the right feeling.
@smolinsk This short definitely felt like Uncharted to me. At least, as good as any movie ever could. A movie is never going to feel 100% the same as the games because we're used to the voice actors and character models of the games. Even if they made a movie using the voice actors from the games it would still feel off to people because they wouldn't look the way we're used to them looking in the games. In my opinion, Nathan Fillion looks about as close to Nathan Drake as any actor I have ever seen. Plus, he naturally has the same kind of humor and personality, along with a similar tone of voice. I would be very surprised if they find somebody better suited to play Nathan Drake.
This was awesome hope they got more lined up for us.
That was very impressive! They truly pulled of the essence of Nathan Drake, I could definitely watch a full movie of this.
I was a little hesitant when I read Stephen Lang was playing Sully, but you know what, he won me over. The entire thing was fantastic and I wish I'd have recorded my reaction watching it cause I swear I had a grin from ear to ear. This was really good. Nathan nailed it. Either him or Nolan were always my top picks for Drake.
I wasn't even sure it was him at first.
The cast looks older like 5-6 years later from UC4. I like continuity, but it would be funny if they removed the bag from Nate's head and his hair is completely fixed lol.
Yooo Ernie Reyes Jr!!
This was amazing. Steven Lang really didn't fit or feel like Sully but Steven Lang it an awesome actor. There were a lot of scenes that felt like they were straight out of the game's cutscenes, the fans behind this really knew what they were doing unlike a lot of fan made stuff. Awesome job.
glad to confirm that Filion is indeed the perfect match for Nathan Drake
I liked the "oh" near the end...one of many uncharted moments
This needs to get picked up as a web series ala Cobra Kai. I’d 100% watch it. Way to go Nathan Fillion! Always thought of him as Drake before Tom Holland or *gasp* Mark Wahlberg. Oh Hollywood
Since it hasnt started filming and Fillion is good as Drake, we can have both actors as young and old Drake, with old Drake being the lead for most of it. He might be old but based on a low budget film that was made in probably a week he looks good and with some cardio and makeup he can pass as Nate from UC4.
I've always seen him as Nathan Drake .. Hell i even hoped we would see an uncharted movie by him
It would have been cool to see Nathan Fillion play Nathan Drake but it won't happen he is too old for the way they want to set up the trilogy. He fits the character like a glove and his past characters have a lot of the same qualities that Nathan Drake has playful, charismatic and funny. I could see Chris Pratt playing the role of Nathan I just hope they cast the right people.
If they do the whole trilogy like lord of the rings with the all the filming being done before the release of the 2nd and 3rd hits theaters his age shouldnt be a problem and tom cruise is 56 believe it or not.
Brilliant. Nathan’s born to play Drake
Movie or Netflix, i`m all over it. Always known Nathan Fillion was Nathan Drake, and now seeing him in the role just 200% confilrms it.
Someone turn this into an actual film, if not, web series.
Nathan Fillion said he would do it, he was the fan favorite. This shows what amazing potential this movie can have. I really hope they scrap that garbage with that little idiot Tom Holland that's gonna be such a flop and an insult to this great series.
This needs to be made into a TV series, a few seasons 10 to 13 episodes each an hour long would be perfect to explore all characters, and back story. A 2 hour movie wouldn't do Drake justice.
Not bad for a 47 year old! Come on Nathan, reprise your role as Captain Malcolm Reynolds (Firefly/Serenity) and now as Nathan Drake in the Uncharted series and we can call it a wrap!
please stop, this is just horrible and an insult to Uncharted
awesome <3 he's just the perfect man for the role, if there will be a proper uncharted movie i want him in it
THIS IS SO AWESOME!
This was very fun to watch. I'm glad he made it because I've always thought that Nathan Fillion would be a perfect Nathan Drake.
Honestly, this captures the essence of the game. I got giddy when the gun fight started and the camera fixated itself the way ND fixes it's Uncharted Camera when the gun play gets going. The quips, dialog and humor, was definitely in line with Naughty Dogs work, tho, a tad cheesy in some areas, all it was missing was an iver the top set piece
Pretty amazing for a fan video no less
That was great.
Holy sh*t that was amazing
