Borderlands reveals the first images of its film in Live Action


Lionsgate has just published the first official trailer for Borderlands, and it was not very well received by fans of the video game, since it currently has more than 18,000 “dislikes” on YouTube. Although the movie doesn’t look bad at all, people’s main complaint is the cast, especially Kevin Hart as Roland.

Original News

There is a Live Action movie based on Borderlands that has been in development for several years. After the cast of actors who will play the group of protagonists was announced, a long time passed without any update. But the wait is just over, as today the first images of the film were revealed, including several renowned actors dressed as the iconic characters from the game. Gearbox Software.

Our first look at the Borderlands movie

Magazine People revealed these exclusive images of the Borderlands cast in character, and they look surprisingly good. This consists of Cate Blanchett (Known from Tár and Thor: Ragnarok) as Lilith, Kevin Hart (Known from Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) as Roland, Jamie Lee Curtis (Known from the Halloween saga) as Patricia Tannis, Ariana Greenblatt (Known by Barbie) as Tiny Tina and Florian Munteanu (Known by Creed) as Krieg. To all this, we must also add the participation of Jack Black (Known for Super Mario Bros, Tenacious D and much more) as the voice of the friendly robot, Claptrap.

Borderlands is an absurd and colorful video game, with a lot of humor. So it is important that the film can maintain the essence of the original title. Luckily, these interpretations of the characters look pretty faithful to their source material. Based on these images, it is evident that Lilith will be the protagonist of the film and, luckily, Cate Blanchett is a talented actress who will surely give a fun performance. The entire cast looks great, but the only one who hasn’t convinced fans is Kevin Hart as Roland. The comedian is known for his short stature and unserious roles, while Roland is a larger-than-life and more serious character.

On the other hand, the decision to keep Claptrap as a character made entirely with CGI, but voiced by an actor as charismatic as Jack Black was really ingenious. This is a loaded cast and they have the potential to make a very fun and chaotic movie. Borderlands was directed by Eli Rotha director known for his characteristic exaggerated and violent style, as seen in his work in Hostel either thanksgiving. If you applied this same style to this tape, it could result in something really special. However, we won’t be able to know for sure until we see it for ourselves.

Luckily we won’t have to wait much longer, because the Borderlands Live Action movie will be available in theaters starting next August 9, 2024. And if you want to know more about it, they already announced that tomorrow they are going to release the first trailer. Lately, movies based on video games are doing very well (As already happened with Super Mario Bros, Sonic The Hedgehog and Five Nights at Freddy’s) so in a few months we will see if Borderlands will also join the list of hits.
