Uncharted Movie Stunts Are "Far Bigger" Than Anything Tom Holland Has Done Before

"It's the hardest action sequence I've ever made."


Spider-Man actor Tom Holland's next big movie is Uncharted, in which he plays a young Nathan Drake. The actor has now shed some light on the stunts that went into the film, and a behind-the-scenes video has been released--it looks intense.

For the much-hyped cargo plane scene from the trailers, Holland said this shoot specifically took five weeks to finish. Holland performed at least some of his own stunts for this sequence, which involved dangling high in the air and crashing down onto a mat.

"At times I'd be like 100 feet in the air attached to a box that is spinning and then I would basically hang on until it would throw me off. It was really scary. But I think that level of fear just makes that scene that much more authentic. It's the hardest action sequence I've ever made," Holland said.

Across the entire movie, Holland said the stunts in Uncharted are "far bigger" than anything he'd done before, which is saying a lot considering he has appeared in numerous Spider-Man and Avengers films.

Holland previously spoke about the painful nature of Uncharted's action scenes. "I was getting so beat," he told Esquire. "I was battered and bruised, and I had tendinitis in my hamstring. I will never do a sword fight scene ever again."

Uncharted, which also stars Mark Wahlberg, Antonio Banderas, Sophia Ali, and Tati Gabrielle, releases on February 18 in theaters.

As for the game series, Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection--a new compilation package featuring Uncharted 4 and Lost Legacy--comes to PS5 on January 28. Everyone who buys the game gets a ticket to see Uncharted.
