Tom Holland Reveals Shooting For “Unchartered” Absolutely Broke Him
Tom Holland is exploring more of himself by taking up roles different from MCU’s Spider-Man. He will now lead the “Unchartered” as Nathan Drake. Drake is a professional treasure hunter and the film is around that treasure! The movie is full of action sequences Tom once teased. And, he is right. The film’s trailer proves that just right.
However, shooting for the film and its action sequels wasn’t easy. Tom recently revealed that the “film absolutely broke me.” Tom revealed that being the Spider-Man was easy as it he was under the mask and it was majorly CG. But with this movie, it’s completely different.
The role called for extensive training and a change in physical appearance. Tom said, “I was going to the gym in the morning like, ‘Oh, my God, I’ve must have torn something in my leg,’ and the guys were like, ‘You haven’t, you’re just tired and you’re getting older.'” Tom also revealed his co-actor, Mark Wahlberg, who is twice his size, complimented him saying “Wow, somebody has been training.” To achieve all of this, Tom spent four to five months eating and rigorous training during the lockdown.
Not just gym and physical training, Tom Holland also trained in a high-end hotel bar to practice his bartending skills. Why? That’s because Nathan Drake also works as a bartender in the movie. So, Tom went too much into the skin of the character. Hopefully, the result is convincing too. The trailer looks promising though. This is evident that Tom Holland has worked hard for this movie. We hope the hard work pays off and the movie is loved by both fans and critics!
