Uncharted overperforms at the global box office despite negative reviews


By Aron Gerencser February 20, 2022

Video game movie franchises almost always get a bad rep that's not always warranted.

But, in recent years, we've seen a series of video game adaptations buck the trend.

The latest to do so is the Tom Holland-led Uncharted.

Sony's Uncharted made $55.4 million at the international box office and $51 million in North America, giving it a running total of $106.4 million in its opening weekend.

With a $120 million budget and a running total of $139 million at the global box office, Uncharted is well on its way to becoming a box office success.

More importantly, it's on track to become Sony's second straight blockbuster movie following Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Speaking of Sony, we still have no clue of Uncharted is getting a sequel.

However, at the risk of spoiling the movie, the film does have a post-credits scene that alludes to a follow-up.

Judging by the positive reception to the first film and as long as Holland is open to it, we might just see him return as Nathan Drake for another big-screen outing soon enough.
