The live-action Borderlands movie from director Eli Roth finally has a release date. Lionsgate has announced that it will arrive in cinemas on 9 August 2024, though no trailer has been released so far. The movie adapts the popular Borderlands series of video games from Gearbox and stars a massive cast of Hollywood actors.
Along with the release date, fans also got a first look at the Borderlands movie’s official logo which faithfully borrows the font and style from the video game source material. Other than that, we still got well over a year before it arrives in cinemas so it will be a long wait. The Borderlands movie is directed by Eli Roth, best known for starring in Inglourious Basterds and directing horror movies such as Hostel, Cabin Fever and Knock Knock.
The Borderlands movie also features a star-studded cast including Cate Blanchett (The Lord of the Rings) as Lilith, Kevin Hart (Ride Along, Central Intelligence) as Roland, Jamie Lee Curtis (Halloween, Everything Everywhere All at Once) as Tannis, Ariana Greenblatt (Barbie, Avengers: Infinity War) as Tiny Tina and Gina Gershon (Face/Off, Killer Joe) as Moxxi. Jack Black, after voicing Bowser in The Super Mario Bros. Movie, will voice Claptrap.
The story synopsis for the Borderlands movie reads:
“Lilith, an infamous outlaw with a mysterious past, reluctantly returns to her home planet of Pandora to find the missing daughter of the universe’s most powerful S.O.B., Atlas. Lilith forms an alliance with an unexpected team – Roland, a former elite mercenary, now desperate for redemption; Tiny Tina, a feral pre-teen demolitionist; Krieg, Tina’s musclebound, rhetorically challenged protector; Tannis, the scientist with a tenuous grip on sanity; and Claptrap, a persistently wiseass robot. These unlikely heroes must battle alien monsters and dangerous bandits to find and protect the missing girl, who may hold the key to unimaginable power.”
Borderlands releases in cinemas on 9 August 2024.
