Borderlands Movie Will Shoot Onto Cinema Screens In 2024

Starring Cate Blanchett and fresh from his turn in The Super Mario Bros. Movie, Jack Black voices the loveable robot Claptrap

The Borderlands movie now has an official release date. Based on the popular video game series of the same name, the film will be released in theatres on August 9th, 2024. Filming wrapped in June of 2021, so the announcement feels overdue.

Borderlands is a popular action role-playing FPS from 2009. The video game was praised for its loot system and for offering couch-co-op in a landscape of online multiplayer games. In Borderlands, players play as treasure hunters on the dangerous planet of Pandora. The game was followed by Borderlands 2 in 2012, Borderlands the pre-sequel in 2014 and Borderlands 3 in 2019. Tiny Tina’s Wonderland, which released in 2022, is a spin-off of the game series.

Kevin Hart says the film looks like the game

Directed by Eli Roth, Borderlands stars Cate Blanchett as Lilith, a treasure hunter returning to her home planet Pandora. Upon returning, Lilith begins searching for the missing daughter of Atlantis. Throughout the film, Blanchett’s character works with Tannis (Jamie Lee Curtis), Krieg (Florian Munteanu), Roland (Kevin Hart), Tiny Tina (Arian Greenblatt) and Claptrap (Jack Black) to complete her mission.

“The fanbase that follows the game is already huge and unreal, but I don’t think they even have a clear understanding of how close we’re coming to the game. It looks like the game. It’s unbelievable, truly unbelievable,” Kevin Hart told Collider in a 2021 interview.

Oddly enough, while the film now has an official release date, Lionsgate has yet to release a trailer for the film. This is especially strange since filming was reportedly finished just over two years ago. Another oddity is Lionsgate’s choice to announce the premiere date more than a year before its launch. Lionsgate has revealed little about the Borderlands film. However, a minute of film footage was shown at CinemaCon 2022. Since then, however, no other footage has been revealed.
