It’s been a couple of years since we’ve heard or seen something about that Borderlands film starring Cate Blanchett, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Kevin Hart. So it was nice to lastly get our first actual have a look at the solid in some new screenshots and oh… oh no.

Borderlands is an upcoming movie adaptation of the Borderlands online game collection. Movie studio Lionsgate has been making an attempt to make a film primarily based on the favored sci-fi looter-shooter franchise since 2015. Lastly, after years of begin and cease, this model directed by Eli Roth (Hostel) was introduced again in 2019, began casting in 2020, after which started filming in April 2021. The film wrapped up manufacturing in June of that very same yr. In January 2023, following reported check screenings, two weeks of reshoots had been ordered. This extra filming was led by Deadpool director Tim Miller and never Roth. So yeah, you possibly can say the Borderlands film has been in manufacturing hell for a couple of years. Nevertheless it was all price it, proper? Proper?

On February 20, Individuals revealed the primary unique screenshots of the upcoming movie, which is slated to land in theaters this August. One picture exhibits Cate Blanchett as Lillith, a strong vault hunter who—within the video games—is armed with weapons and area magic. Blanchett sports activities Lillith’s brilliant crimson hair in each Individuals-exclusive screenshots and is seen carrying an outfit that feels a bit generic and never very Borderlands-y to me.

The second picture is the extra thrilling one because it exhibits the principle solid wanting down a properly collectively. Within the picture, we get our first actual have a look at Kevin Hart as Roland, Jack Black as Claptrap, Curtis as Tannis, Ariana Greenblatt as Tiny Tina, and Florian Munteanu as Krieg. And Blanchett’s Lilith is hanging out with the gang, too.

As somebody who considers themselves a Borderlands fan, I’m not excited in any respect about this primary have a look at the film. (Sure, I even assume the video games are humorous and typically well-written once they cease making an attempt to be “LOL RANDOM.”)

In fact, this is only one picture from a bigger movie and this screenshot may not be consultant of what the completed movie seems like, however proper now this seems like a pre-recorded SNL parody that we’d cowl the next Monday. It seems weirdly low-budget and clear and boring. It jogs my memory of these terrible fan posters that all the time pop up on-line round massive films. The posters that photoshop actors into pre-existing artwork, look advantageous, however you’ll be able to inform the one that made them didn’t care. Yeah, that’s the vibe I’m getting from these first seems. Not good. It additionally doesn’t assist that these photographs seem like they arrive from two totally different films, which could kinda be the case primarily based on the manufacturing historical past and reshoots.

I used to be already not bought on a Borderlands movie this a few years after the franchise had seemingly hit its popular culture zenith—this seems like a film that fell out of 2017—and these new photographs haven’t obtained me any extra hyped to see Borderlands when it hits theaters on August 9, 2024.
