Lionsgate Movie and Gearbox have released the first trailer for the upcoming Borderlands movie.

The movie stars Cate Blanchett is as Lilith, Kevin Hart as Roland, Ariana Greenblatt as Tiny Tina, Jack Black as Claptrap, Jamie Lee Curtis as Tannis, and Gina Gershon as Moxxi.

"Lilith (Blanchett), an infamous bounty hunter with a mysterious past, reluctantly returns to her home, Pandora, the most chaotic planet in the galaxy," reads the description to the trailer.

"Her mission is to find the missing daughter of Atlas (Ramírez), the universe’s most powerful S.O.B. Lilith forms an unexpected alliance with a ragtag team of misfits – Roland (Hart), a seasoned mercenary on a mission; Tiny Tina (Greenblatt), a feral pre-teen demolitionist; Krieg (Munteanu), Tina’s musclebound protector; Tannis (Curtis), the oddball scientist who’s seen it all; and Claptrap (Black), a wiseass robot.

"Together, these unlikely heroes must battle an alien species and dangerous bandits to uncover one of Pandora’s most explosive secrets. The fate of the universe could be in their hands – but they’ll be fighting for something more: each other. Based on one of the best-selling videogame franchises of all time, welcome to BORDERLANDS."

View the trailer below:

The Borderlands movie will hit theaters on August 9, 2024.

I also think it looks pretty decent- I expected way worse when I first heard they were making a Borderlands movie. I agree that the age of the actors seems a bit off, but the number one problem for me (by far) is casting Kevin Hart as Roland. Kevin Hart is capable of playing exactly one role- Kevin Hart, that's it. And that's unfortunately as far away from the Roland character in the games as it can be.

I'm getting serious Guardians of the Galaxy vibes with this trailer.

If there was going to be a video game based film that had that vibe it would be a Borderlands. MCU has a lot to answer for in cinema but at least here it works, fitting based on the source material.

Looks like it'll be entertaining at least. I'll watch it.

I don't feel it. Jamie Lee and Jack Black will probably be good, but the whole thing looks it bit like try too hard to be something - ending up being nothing. I can be wrong, but this isn't giving me much trust.

Looks decent. Still not sold on some of the casting decisions though, and I am still baffled by their main character choices, mixing Borderlands 1, 2, and Pre-Sequel playable characters Roland, Lilith, Krieg, and Claptrap, with NPC's Tannis and Tiny Tina. Tiny Tina without Brick and Mordecai is a particularly odd choice.

Looks retarded. Hard pass.

All of the actors should have been closer to the age of the girl with the rabbit hair (don't remember the character and only played the first two Borderlands so idk) than to the boomers they ended with. For that reason alone, hard pass.
