Reason We’re Watching It: It’s no secret we’re gaming fans here at TrunkSpace. (See the Trunk Gaming section to verity our credentials!) Fans of the Uncharted gaming franchise have been wishing for a live action movie for years, but it appears to be stuck in Hollywood pre-production purgatory. Allan Ungar, a fan of the gaming series, took this short film on as a passion project along with Nathan Fillion, and we are so glad they did.
What It’s About: Nathan Drake, played masterfully by Fillion, is captured on purpose in the hopes of retrieving some historical documents from some very bad dudes. Of course, Sully is nearby to help pull Drake’s bacon out of the fire if things go sideways, which you know they always do.
Whoah! Rewind That!: During Drake’s big action scene, Ungar captured the exact way we would see the scene in video game format, and it came out so well that it brought a pixelated tear to our eyes.
Watercooler-Worthy Tidbit: Ungar is not the only one who thinks Fillion is the perfect casting for Drake. There are scads of petitions online from fans asking that they cast Nathan Fillion as the quick quipping Drake.
And that’s why we’re giving it…
