Although many have compared the protagonist character to Indiana Jones, this movie is based on the Uncharted videogame series but with a younger Nathan Drake (Holland). A teaser trailer has not been revealed, but the Spider-man actor gave a little sneak peek at what we could expect. "It's Mark Wahlberg and myself. It's a prequel to the Naughty Dog game series, Uncharted. I play Nathan Drake. Ruben Fleischer is our director, and he did an amazing job. I'm really chuffed with it. It's fun, it's funny, it's epic. It's going to be really entertaining. The action sequences are some of the coolest sequences that I've ever done. So I'm super-excited about that."
