The Borderlands Movie Trailer Has Arrived With A Premiere Date

The dangers of Pandora will be blasting into cinemas this year with the Borderlands movie, and we have our first trailer.

Eli Roth, the director behind movies like Hostel and Thanksgiving, is taking a swing at the beloved cel-shaded madness of Borderlands. The film is based on the first game in the series and follows a ragtag group of heroes searching the chaotic planet of Pandora for a vault containing a powerful relic. Below is the first trailer showcasing the shenanigans the Vault Hunters group will be getting up to.

Borderlands Movie Trailer Premiere

The Borderlands movie trailer showcases fan-favorite characters like Roland and Lilith as they search for a famed vault on Pandora. The movie features a star-studded lineup with the following portrayals of the Vault Hunter group:

  • Cate Blanchett as Lilith
  • Kevin Hart as Roland
  • Ariana Greenblatt as Tiny Tina
  • Jack Black as the voice of Claptrap
  • Jamie Lee Curtis as Dr. Tannis
  • Florian Munteanu as Krieg

The movie looks to follow most of the narrative and comedic tone of the first Borderlands game, establishing the world of Pandora and the famed Vault Hunters group. Furthermore, it seems to show the group’s understanding that, on a planet full of mayhem, the best thing to do is to fight fire with fire.

Video game movies have seen a resurgence in recent years, with Sonic the Hedgehog and Super Mario showing that the jump to the silver screen can work well.

That is everything to know about the premiere of the Borderlands movie trailer and what is in store for the heroes on Pandora.
