The most searched movie based on video games, revealed

 

July 19, 2022 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Uncharted is the most searched movie adapted from a video game, a new study reveals.

The study, conducted by online gaming platform Yahtzee Craze, analyzed movies that are adaptations of video games for the big screen of the last 20 years to find out which one has been the most searched worldwide.

"Uncharted", released in February 2022 starring Mark Wahlberg and Tom Holland, takes the first place, with more than four million average monthly searches worldwide. The movie is based on the action-adventure video game of the same name originally released in 2007, which has become hugely popular all over the world.

The movie was originally planned for a 2016 release, but due to problems during its production, it was moved numerous times until its final release date this year, which contributed to the movie being widely anticipated.

In second comes "Sonic the Hedgehog", the first instalment of which was released in 2020, followed by the second in April 2022. The movie registers an average of 1.83 million monthly searches worldwide.

Before its release, the movie was heavily criticized for the way the title character was originally made, with humanoid features that did not resemble its video game counterpart. The movie was then delayed to its 2020 release due to Sonic's re-design.

"Need for Speed" is third, with 901,000 average monthly searches. The movie starring Aaron Paul and Dominic Cooper was released in 2014, making it one of the older movies to make the list. The game on which the movie is based made its debut in 1994 and its last instalment is dated 2019.

Further down on the list, Monster Hunter (2020) comes in fourth with 719,000 average monthly searches. The game of the same name is an action role-playing title that has been around since 2004.

The top five closes with the second oldest movie on the list, Hitman, released in 2007 and based on the series of the same name developed and released since 2000. The movie has 532,000 monthly searches.


A spokesperson for Yahtzee Craze commented on the findings: "It is interesting to see the variety of movies which are included in the list, mostly due to their release dates. In fact, regardless of the fact that the top ten is topped by "Uncharted", which is the latest release of a movie adapted from a video game, other movies included are way older, like "Need for Speed" from 2014, "Hitman" from 2007, "Silent Hill" from 2006 and "Warcraft", 2016."

The study was conducted by Yahtzee Craze, an online gaming platform for the popular dice game.
