‘Borderlands’ Trailer: Cate Blanchett, Kevin Hart & More in Eli Roth-Directed Video Game Adaptation


The trailer has arrived for upcoming video game adaptation Borderlands, directed and co-written by Eli Roth (Thanksgiving, Hostel) and starring Cate Blanchett, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Edgar Ramírez, Ariana Greenblatt, Florian Munteanu, Gina Gershon, and Jamie Lee Curtis.

Based on the video game series of the same name developed by Gearbox Software, the film tells the story of Lilith (Blanchett), an infamous and mysterious bounty hunter who reluctantly returns to her home, Pandora, the most chaotic planet in the galaxy. 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.

Borderlands is set for U.S. release on August 9th. No Aus date confirmed as yet; we’ll update when it is.
