Sony’s Uncharted movie continues to pull in big box office numbers, and it’s now making more money worldwide than every entry in the Tomb Raider movie series.
After another successful weekend in theaters, Uncharted has now raised $301.255 million worldwide. Unadjusted for inflation, this is more than 2001’s Lara Croft: Tomb Raider ($274.7 million), Lara Croft: Tomb Raider – Cradle of Life (2003)$160 million) and the 2018 Tomb Raider reboot ($274.65 million).
Uncharted is now getting closer to 2020’s Sonic the Hedgehog, which grossed $319 million worldwide.
Sony Pictures has declared Uncharted to be the company’s next “franchise,” suggesting that Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg could return in a sequel. Director Ruben Fleischer has said he wants to make a sequel, and one of his ideas is to put the epic car chase scene from Uncharted 4 in the movie. Fleischer and Holland could also do a Jak and Daxter movie.
Here at GameSpot, our Uncharted reviewer scored the film a 7/10. Reviewer Phil Hornshaw said: “Uncharted is great fun most of the time. It may not do much that the games haven’t already, but fans will appreciate a new Uncharted tale that at least brings his own flashy, death-defying treasure hunt in the sheepfold.”
The film’s success is also sparking new talk about the future of the Uncharted game series. Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection was released in January, bringing together Uncharted 4 and Lost Legacy on PS5, but no brand new entries in the main series have been announced. Recently, however, the developers at Naughty Dog said they had a “never say never” attitude about making Uncharted 5.
