  • Tom Holland said that the stunts he does in "Uncharted" are "far bigger" than others he's done.
  • According to him, the film's cargo-drop sequence was filmed over the course of five weeks.
  • Holland called the sequence "really scary" and the "hardest action sequence" he's ever done.

Tom Holland said that the cargo-drop sequence from "Uncharted" was the most difficult action sequence he's ever done in his career.

Holland stars in the upcoming film, slated for release on February 18, as young thief Nathan Drake , who accompanies Mark Wahlberg's Victor Sullivan — a treasure hunter better known by the moniker "Sully" — to recover a treasure. The film, which serves as a prequel to the video game series, is an adaptation from the " Uncharted" video game franchise developed by Naughty Dog.

According to Holland, the stunts that he did for the film exceeded even his web-slinging action as Spider-Man , which the actor told Collider was "incredibly tough and physical," in terms of sheer difficulty.

"With 'Uncharted,' I was shooting stunts that are far bigger than anything I've done before," the actor said in a behind-the-scenes featurette released Monday by Sony Pictures Entertainment.

According to Holland, shooting for the film's cargo-drop scene, culled from the third game in the series , took place "almost every day" over the course of five weeks.

"At times, I'd be like 100 feet in the air, attached to a box that is spinning, and then I would basically hang on until it would throw me off," Holland said. "And it was really scary, but I think that level of fear just makes that scene that much more authentic."

Behind-the scenes footage from the film shows Holland jumping between gyrating cargo boxes on set, hanging upside-down from their straps, and being whacked around in the air blue-screen cubes and the front piece of a car.

"It's the hardest action sequence I've ever made," Holland said.

"Uncharted" will premiere exclusively in theaters on February 18.
