Sony Pictures first big film of 2022 is “Uncharted”, which is based on the smash-hit video game series and it stars Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg.
“Uncharted,” tells the story of street-smart Nathan Drake (Tom Holland) who is recruited by seasoned treasure hunter Victor “Sully” Sullivan (Mark Wahlberg) to recover a fortune amassed by Ferdinand Magellan and lost 500 years ago by the House of Moncada. What starts as a heist job for the duo becomes a globe-trotting, white-knuckle race to reach the prize before the ruthless Santiago Moncada (Antonio Banderas), who believes he and his family are the rightful heirs. If Nate and Sully can decipher the clues and solve one of the world’s oldest mysteries, they stand to find $5 billion in treasure and perhaps even Nate’s long-lost brother…but only if they can learn to work together.
When Is Uncharted Release In Cinemas?
“Uncharted” arrives in cinemas on February 18th 2022
When Is Uncharted Coming To Netflix?
Netflix and Sony Pictures Entertainment have a multiyear, exclusive first pay window licensing deal in the U.S. for theatrically released Sony feature films, beginning with their 2022 film slate, which includes “Uncharted” and “Morbius”.
This means that “Uncharted” will be coming to Netflix in the United States after its theatrical run. Since “Uncharted” is the first film to be included in this new contract, it’s unclear exactly when the film will be released on Netflix, since many film studios have reduced their release windows. Under Sony’s previous deal with Starz, films would be released onto a streaming service around 6 months after its release date.
Once “Uncharted” arrives on Netflix in the US, it’ll stay there for the pay one window, which is around 18 months.
Internationally, Sony has different contracts, such as with HBO Max in Central Europe, so it’s currently unknown if “Uncharted” will arrive on Netflix.
When Is Uncharted Coming To Disney+?
Disney and Sony Pictures Entertainment have a multi-year content licensing agreement for U.S. streaming and TV rights to Sony Pictures’ new theatrical releases across Disney Media & Entertainment Distribution’s vast portfolio of platforms including its streaming services Disney+ and Hulu, as well as linear entertainment networks including ABC, Disney Channels, Freeform, FX and National Geographic. The deal covers theatrical releases from 2022-2026 and begins for each film following its Pay 1 TV window (Netflix).
This means that once “Uncharted” is removed from Netflix in the US after the Pay 1 window expires (18 months), Disney can add the film to Hulu and Disney+ in the United States. Which is likely to be around 2 years after the theatrical release, so in early 2024.
Internationally, Sony doesn’t have a deal with Disney, so “Uncharted” won’t be released on Disney+.
