You may not be able to watch all of Tom Holland's Spider-Man movies on Netflix, but his recent film, Uncharted, is coming to the streaming service in August! Thanks to a Sony deal in 2021, all theatrial films from Sony Pictures will arrive on Netflix in the United States and other regions.
The action-adventure movie is based on the popular video game franchise developed by Naughty Dog, and it was released in theaters on February 18, 2022. While some streaming services like Apple TV+ and Amazon Prime Video currently have the movie available, you'll need to purchase the film to watch it there. Of course, that won't be the case when it arrives on Netflix.
Uncharted is directed by Ruben Fleischer and written by Rafe Lee Judkins, and it stars Holland as Nathan "Nate" Drake, a charismatic and good-natured yet rebellious trasure hunter. The film also stars Mark Wahlberg, Sophia Ali, Tati Gabrielle, and Antonio Banderas. It was originally set to release in December 2020, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, its production faced major delays. However, Netflix India is unaffected by this delay with the film available as of July 12.
If you're wondering what the movie is about, Uncharted serves as a prequel to the events of the 2007 videogame, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. In the film, Victor "Sully" Sullivan (Wahlberg) recruits Nate to help him recover a 500-year-old lost fortune amassed by explorer Ferdinand Magellan. Although it begins as a heist, the adventure turns into a globe-trotting race to acquire the treasure before the ruthless Santiago Moncada (Antonio Banderas) can get it.
Although the film received mixed reviews from critics (40% score in Rotten Tomatoes), Holland was praised for his performance. The film grossed $401.7 million worldwide, making it the ninth-highest-grossing movie this year.

When is Uncharted leaving Netflix?
Once Netflix adds the movie to its platform, the streaming giant should then carry the film for 18 months before leaving the service for Disney's assortment of services (for this film, it's likely that it will be released on Hulu).
