Yesterday morning, director Allan Ungar (Gridlocked) unveiled an Uncharted fan film that gave fans something they’ve been wanting to see for ten years: a live-action Uncharted story that starred actor Nathan Fillion as treasure hunter and video game protagonist Nathan Drake.

Ever since the first Uncharted video game arrived back in 2007, fans have wanted to see actor Nathan Fillion (Firefly, Castle) play the lead role of Nathan Drake, a treasure-hunting adventurer/thief, in a movie adaptation. The actor bears a striking physical resemblance to the video game protagonist, and Fillion has proven capable of matching the character’s sarcastic temperament and quick wit in parts he’s played in the past. An Uncharted movie has been in the works for years at Sony, but since Fillion isn’t going to be involved with that project, he’s taken matters into his own hands.
In this unofficial live-action Uncharted fan film, Fillion finally suits up as Nathan Drake – and he’s joined by a cast of familiar faces in key supporting roles. Check out the short film below.

Almost exactly three years ago, an impressive live-action commercial for Bungie’s video game Destiny debuted, directed by TRON Legacy helmer Joseph Kosinski.

There are some people who seem to think it’s ridiculous to think about the universe of Pixar’s animated franchise Cars beyond its surface-level existence of a world where automobiles can talk just like animals have in countless Disney movies before. But there’s just something about the logistics of the Cars universe that raises a myriad of questions, and that can be frustrating, especially when Pixar goes out of their way to not answer them unless it’s important to the story or characters.
For anyone who thinks those asking the tough questions about the Cars universe are thinking way too hard about this concept, it must be pointed out that even the actors and actresses who lend their voices to the sentient vehicles in this weekend’s Cars 3 have their own questions about the world of Cars.
Watch as the voice cast poses their own Pixar Cars universe questions after the jump. Read More »
When Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was still in production, spy photographers spotted some interesting details on a small town set. The scene was set on Earth and it featured an event called the Simon Williams Film Festival. On the set, some fake movie posters were spotted featuring Nathan Fillion as the actor Simon Williams, who just so happens to be better known as Wonder Man in Marvel Comics.
Of course, this sparked excitement from Marvel fans that Nathan Fillion was becoming part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Wonder Man. But when Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 rolled around, Nathan Fillion was nowhere to be seen. Even the scene in question at the Simon Williams Film Festival was cut, and the posters glimpsed on the set were never seen in the movie. Director James Gunn has since explained why this happened, and now he’s revealed all of the Simon Williams movie posters for you to check out below. Read More »
If you saw Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and also stuck around for all five of the credits scenes, you know that there are plenty of cool cameos to enjoy. However, some fans might have been disappointed that one cameo ending up on the cutting room floor: Nathan Fillion.
Word of the Nathan Fillion cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy 2 first emerged in April of 2016 when some set photos spotted a line-up of faux movie posters featuring the Firefly star credited as actor Simon Williams. Fans lost their mind at this detail, because Simon Williams is also known as Wonder Man in the Marvel Comics universe, and it looked like he might make a cameo during a small town Simon Williams Film Festival. So why didn’t we see Nathan Fillion in the movie, even if it was just in those movie posters? James Gunn has explained everything you need to know. Read More »

This summer brings the third installment of the Cars franchise. While the Pixar Animation film series is a monster in the merchandise department, it hasn’t been all that beloved by critics and general audiences. Many will contend that the movies are intended for kids, so that’s not a big deal, but that hasn’t stopped most of the rest of Pixar’s movies from being top notch pieces of animated cinema.
The good news is that what we’ve seen from Cars 3 so far has been more than intriguing. The trailers give the feel of an aging athlete drama with Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) not being the young hotshot racer that he used to be. In addition, the film will boast some new characters who will be voiced by Kerry Washington, Nathan Fillion and Lea DeLaria, and you can see them below. Read More »
