The first trailer for the Borderlands movie is out

Borderlands Movie Tiny Tina
Translate from : Første trailer til Borderlands filmen er ude
We now finally have the first trailer for the Borderlands movie, and it hits the nail on the head pretty well in terms of style and tone.

It's been years since the Borderlands movie was first announced, and now we finally have the first real trailer after being teased with images. It's full tilt in the trailer, which in many ways creates an atmosphere that reminds us a lot of the chaotic games.

The trailer introduces us to the basic elements of the story, which should be recognizable to any Borderlands fan: a group of treasure hunters, including Lilith (Cate Blanchett) and Roland (Kevin Hart), come to hostile Pandora in search of a vault said to contain untold riches, and they are led by a robot named Claptrap, voiced by Jack Black.

What they find when they get there is a strange and dangerous planet full of strange types and terrifying creatures. The trailer also gives us a look at some other series favorites like Tannis (Jamie Lee Curtis) and Tiny Tina (Ariana Greenblatt), although it seems like their roles here might be a little different than in the games.

The film does not follow the same story as the games and therefore will not be part of the same timeline unless a Multiverse story is started here as well. Characters like Roland and Lilith were first introduced in the original Borderlands, but characters like Tiny Tina, who is very prominent in the trailer, didn't arrive until Borderlands 2. One of the interesting things about this trailer is how much it resembles Borderlands, despite that it wisely avoids the game series' characteristic cell-shadow graphics style. Even without that, the film evokes the spirit of the game quite well, with visuals that seem perfectly in keeping with the incredibly silly tone of the series.


In addition to the cast in the trailer, the film also stars Gina Gershon (Thanksgiving) as Moxxi, Edgar Ramirez (Dr. Death) as Atlas, Janina Gavankar (The Morning Show) as Knoxx, Cheyenne Jackson (American Horror Story) as Jakobs, and Haley Bennett ( The Magnificent Seven) in an unspecified role.

The film is expected to release on August 9.
