Tom Holland is in the process of crunching out his second huge film in as many months, so here’s the latest on the Uncharted movie UK DVD, Blu-ray and digital release date. It’s only just out on the big screen, so there will inevitably be a delay, but with the nature of cinema in the modern era of streaming it won’t be as long as you might expect for the home entertainment release.
The Uncharted film comes hot on the heels of the mammoth success of Spider-Man No Way Home, which looks set to lift the potential for the computer game adaptation. It sees Holland staring as Nathan Drake in a slightly surprising casting, but with an origin story that pre-dates the games, maybe Sony are banking on Tom to get a whole lot more rugged for any potential sequels.Advertisement The plot tells the story of Nathan and Sully’s first job together with the latter being played by Mark Wahlberb in another surprising casting decision considering the character in the film is a bit of an older veteran. Again, time and tide could see him growing into the role, and with the might of villain, Moncada, (Antonio Banderas) to face, it could well be the kind of stress inducing adventure that they need.
UK DVD, Blu-ray and digital release date
With the Uncharted movie hitting cinemas in February 2022, it means that we’ll probably get the DVD, Blu-ray and digital release date towards the end of May 2022. It’ll be available to buy on digital first. Although, there’s bound to be an early access Home Premier rental around March/April if you’re looking to see it the comfort of your own home.Advertisement The DVD and Blu-ray usually comes out a week or two after it’s available to buy digitally, which could push it back to early June, but the end of May is still the best bet as things stand at the moment. A lot depends on the latest situation with COVID-19 and how successful the film is at the box office. For example, Spider-Man No Way Home has had a long stint in cinemas, which has slowed the home entertainment release. This has come as the pandemic has become less intrusive in terms of restrictions, but a lot was down to its success.
There’s obviously no word as of yet in terms of the special features and bonus content that will be bundled up with the film, but there has been a lot of activity from Sony on YouTube, so it could be a bumper haul. Behind the scenes footage and making of specials could be on the cards, along with blooper reels and chats with Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg.Advertisement We’ll update you with more details on the release as they get confirmed.

North America release date
If you’re based in North America, the film has a slightly later date of the 18th February, compared to the 11th in the UK for cinema. This will inevitably impact when the DVD, Blu-ray and digital versions of the movie will come out. However, it should be a similar end of May/early June date if things continue the same as they are at the moment.

The Uncharted movie is far from a faithful recreation of any of the computer games, but it’s a fun action adventure with some stunning backdrops. The stunts are big too and while the laws of physics have clearly been suspended for a lot of them, they gives the film pace and impact.
However, this comes at the expense of being believable, which is where the movie falls down the most. It’s always easy to pick holes in the plot of action adventure flicks and in all fairness that’s sort of a part of the fun of them, but some of the sequences take this a little too far.
It’s fair to say that Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg don’t look anything like their computer game counterparts, but they work well together on the screen. Sophia Ali joins the mix effortlessly as fellow treasure hunter Chloe Frazer and the villainous side of the equation makes for a decent enough opposition to them all.
The clues are solved a little too easily to create much actual tension in the treasure hunting sections, which is a real shame. It’s a similar story with the fight sequences with all characters pulling off the seemingly impossible to beat the baddies, despite their size or being vastly outnumbered.
The question, though, in terms of the DVD, Blu-ray and digital release is whether or not the Uncharted movie has got much re-watch value and on balance it does. Whether you just want to see the vague flecks of romance between Nate and Chloe a little more, or bask in the escapism of New York, Barcelona and the Philippines, or ride the crazy stunt roller coaster one more time, there’s enough to make it a contender.
DVD, Blu-ray and digital review: 3.5/5
