Uncharted’s Tom Holland worked in a fancy hotel bar to prepare for the adventurous hero of the Sony movie, Nathan Drake.
Actor Tom Holland has revealed some of the odd jobs and activities he has been involved in in preparation for some of the lead roles he has played. For the next from Sony Unexplored adaptation, Holland prepared while working in a fancy hotel bar.
According to GQ, Holland spent time working at a luxury hotel bar, the Chiltern Firehouse in central London, preparing for a scene from Unexplored in which Nathan Drake works behind a bar. By working with the hotel staff, he taught her how to prepare cocktails, pour pourings and add flair to her job as a bartender. The Chiltern Firehouse is renowned for its exclusivity, welcoming celebrities from all over with a rigorous selection process required for reservations.
Holland will play a younger Drake than fans of the video game series may be familiar with. The official synopsis released by Sony reads: “Uncharted introduces the public to Nathan Drake (Tom Holland) and presents his first treasure hunting adventure with his mad partner Victor ‘Sully’ Sullivan (Mark Wahlberg).” Additionally, the synopsis teases: “Inspired by the famous video game series, this action-adventure epic spans the globe and follows Nate and Sully as they embark on the dangerous pursuit of” the greatest treasure ever found ” while tracking down clues that may lead to Nate’s long-lost brother, “suggesting the film draws inspiration from Naughty Dog’s Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
After years of development, Sony Unexplored finally received its first trailer in October, officially released shortly after the clip was leaked online. The trailer showcases the film’s fidelity – if only in terms of aesthetics – to the video game series, with several stunts and major shots resembling iconic moments from the games.
Holland has previously discussed her training for the film, suggesting she was partly inspired by her co-star Mark Wahlberg. In a previous interview, Holland described Wahlberg as “an absolute unit”. He said: “After the [COVID] lock, we’ve had five months off, and I just ate and workout and eat and workout. “
Unexplored is directed by Reuben Fleischer and, in addition to Holland and Wahlberg, stars Antonio Banderas and Tati Gabrielle. The film is slated to hit theaters on February 18, 2022. But before that, Holland will also appear on the big screen as a different action hero: Spider-Man, When Spider-Man: No Path Home premieres on December 17, 2021.
