The Borderlands Movie Trailer Is Finally Here, at Last

Today, Lionsgate has released the official trailer for the Borderlands movie. Originally announced four years ago when the COVID pandemic was about to explode, the film adaptation of Gearbox’s first-person shooter franchise has had its fair of troubles getting to theaters.

Last year, Deadline revealed it had been handed from director and writer Eli Roth to Tim Miller because it needed two weeks of reshoots. It’s hard to say whether any of that work appeared in the trailer; however, this promotional footage certainly seems to capture the craziness of the Borderlands IP. Here’s the official synopsis:

Lilith (Blanchett), an infamous bounty hunter with a mysterious past, 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. Based on one of the best-selling videogame franchises of all time, welcome to BORDERLANDS.

The Borderlands movie features a fairly high-profile cast:

  • Cate Blanchett as Lilith
  • Kevin Hart as Roland
  • Jack Black as Claptrap
  • Jamie Lee Curtis as Dr. Patricia Tannis
  • Ariana Greenblatt as Tiny Tina
  • Florian Munteanu as Krieg
  • Haley Bennett
  • Édgar Ramírez as Atlas
  • Bobby Lee as Larry
  • Olivier Richters as Krom
  • Janina Gavankar as Commander Knoxx
  • Gina Gershon as Mad Moxxi

A previous Deadline report suggested a debut scheduled for August 9, but Lionsgate still only said it’s ‘coming soon’ in this trailer. That’d be one week before Alien: Romulus and around three weeks before Kraven the Hunter.
