The Biggest Movie Ever Filmed in Valencia, “Uncharted,” will also become the highest-earning film since the Covid pandemic began.
The long-awaited video game adaptation, movie “Uncharted,” finally debuted in US cinemas after three years of production, complicated by the Corona outbreak, proving to be a smashing hit over its first two days of screening, according to the US magazine “Variety”.
This Ruben Fleischer-directed film, based on one of the most popular video games, grossed $44 million over the weekend and another $55 million internationally. With an estimated production cost of $120 million, it will be close to breaking even after only a few days in theaters.
The film is expected to earn an additional $52 million during the President’s Day holiday, and much more after March 14, when it is released in China and many other countries. It will also make “Uncharted” the biggest movie ever filmed in Valencia.
“Uncharted” is particularly intriguing because much of the footage was shot on the beaches of Jávea. During filming, the area near the Canal de la Fontana on Arenal beach was transformed into an oasis to host some of the sequences, and many scenes were later shot in Cova dels Orguens and Cala Granadella. Tom Holland, the film’s main star, was responsible for large crowds on the beaches of Javea, hoping to catch a glimpse of him and his co-stars, Mark Wahlberg and Antonio Banderas, after he leaked information about the filming on his Instagram profile.
The film follows the exploits of Nathan Drake, a young fortune hunter who claims to be a descendant of the famous English explorer Sir Francis Drake. He travels the world in search of historical mysteries, and the settings of his adventures are reminiscent of Indiana Jones and Tomb Raider films. This popular game, which was first released in 2007, has sold over 41 million copies to date, making it one of the best-selling video game franchises of all time.
Exotic locations in blockbusters have proven to be a sure tourist hit in recent times, so it is natural to expect that Javea will soon become an even more desirable destination, and the film may give new ideas to the area’s tourist guides. Because “Uncharted” is expected to be the highest-grossing film of the year, we can safely predict that it will be the biggest movie ever filmed in Valencia for a long time to come.
