Marvel star Tom Holland is seldom far from the top of the box office rankings these days. The "Spider-Man: No Way Home" star is back in theatres this weekend as a new type of vigilante in Sony's "Uncharted," an action-adventure based on the famous computer game. Tom Holland's latest thriller film is looking good so far. Uncharted box office collection day 1 report is out now.
The picture is predicted to gross $27 million between Friday and Sunday, and $30 million between Friday and Monday, including President's Day. Some box office forecasters predict that "Uncharted" will gross $35 million in its first four days in cinemas. Those earnings will be more than enough to vault "Death on the Nile" to the top of the charts.
"Uncharted" cost $120 million to develop, so the studio will need to sell a lot of tickets to make a profit. Because the reviews have been lukewarm at best, Holland's magnetism will be crucial in filling seats at otherwise sparsely attended theatres. Holland is seeking to test his big-screen appeal as the dashing treasure hunter Nathan Drake, as opposed to his alter ego as Peter Parker, a.k.a. Spider-Man.
The globe-trotting "Uncharted," directed by Ruben Fleischer ("Venom"), follows Nathan Drake and his wisecracking companion Sully (Mark Wahlberg) as they embark on a death-defying adventure to find the greatest treasure never uncovered. To make matters worse, the brave explorers are racing against two bad guys (played by Antonio Banderas and Tati Gabrielle) to find the legendary fortunes. Consider "Indiana Jones" as a zoomer.
