Sony's Uncharted movie continues to put up big numbers at the box office, and it's now made more money worldwide than every entry in the Tomb Raider film series.

After another successful weekend in theaters, Uncharted has now raked in $301.255 million globally. Not adjusted for inflation, that's more than 2001's Lara Croft: Tomb Raider ($274.7 million), 2003's Lara Croft: Tomb Raider - The Cradle of Life ($160 million), and 2018's Tomb Raider reboot ($274.65 million).

Uncharted is now closing in on 2020's Sonic the Hedgehog, which made $319 million worldwide.

Warcraft ($439 million) remains the highest-grossing video game movie of all time, trailed by Detective Pikachu ($433 million), Rampage ($428 million), and The Angry Birds Movie ($352 million).

Sony Pictures has said Uncharted is the company's next "franchise," which suggests Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg might return in a sequel. Director Ruben Fleischer has said he wants to make a sequel, and one of his ideas for it is to put Uncharted 4's epic car chase scene in the film. Fleischer and Holland might also make a Jak and Daxter movie.

Here at GameSpot, our Uncharted review scored the movie a 7/10. Reviewer Phil Hornshaw said, "Uncharted is a lot of fun a lot of the time. It might not do much that the games haven't already, but fans will enjoy a new Uncharted tale that at least brings its own flashy, death-defying treasure hunt into the fold."

The movie's success is also bringing up renewed talk about the future of the Uncharted game series. Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection released in January, bundling Uncharted 4 and Lost Legacy on PS5, but no brand-new entries in the main series have been announced. Recently, however, developers from Naughty Dog said they have a "never say never" attitude about making Uncharted 5.
