Borderlands movie trailer introduces a motley crew of treasure hunters

Jack Black, Kevin Hart, and Cate Blanchett star in the trailer for the upcoming video game adaptation.


It’s been years since Lionsgate and Gearbox Entertainment revealed that they were collaborating on a Borderlands movie, and we finally have our first look at it. The Borderlands trailer debuted this morning and shows off the movie’s previously announced stars as they embark on a journey to retrieve a valuable treasure.

The Borderlands trailer gives us our first look at Kevin Hart, Cate Blanchett, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Ariana Greenblatt as an adventuring group of misfits aiming to reach a mysterious vault said to be home to a great treasure. They’re joined by Jack Black as Claptrap, marking his second role in a video game adaptation in as many years.

The trailer features a lot of recognizable Borderlands iconography including the Psycho mask, futuristic weapons, and military vehicles.

Borderlands was initially directed by Eli Roth before Deadpool director Tim Miller stepped in to handle reshoots last year. The movie is set to hit theaters later this year.

      Absolutely loving the trailer for the Borderlands movie! It seems they’ve really nailed the chaotic vibe of the game, bringing together such a unique cast to life. The visuals are stunning, and I’m curious to see how they’ll weave together the humor and action that the franchise is known for. Speaking of treasure hunters and their wild adventures, I stumbled upon a fantastic collection of detective movies recently which really captures that thrill of the hunt. I think it's a great way to keep the adrenaline pumping after the movie hype!
