Video game movies are not cursed anymore and the year 2022 has proved it with smash hits like Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Uncharted. Speaking of the latter, then the Tom Holland starring big-screen adaptation is not done yet when it comes to creating new records.

As per the latest reports, Sony’s Uncharted film just went past the mark of $400 million at the global box office. It’s astonishing to witness such a performance from this film.

Uncharted becomes only the 4th video game movie in history to cross $400 million worldwide!

As is already known, the film is based on the highly popular and beloved PlayStation series that goes by the same name.
