Sony has released the trailer for Uncharted live-action movie, and the emergence of Tati Gabrielle (YOU, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) in it has created a wave of excitement on social media.

Inspired by the best-selling PlayStation video game franchise, Uncharted introduces audiences to the young street-smart Nathan Drake (Tom Holland) and showcases his first treasure hunting adventure with wisecracking partner Victor “Sully” Sullivan (Mark Wahlberg).
