I’ve been considering lots about how nice actors find yourself in unhealthy films. Perhaps it was prompted by Madame Internet by some means trapping Euphoria star Sydney Sweeney, nevertheless it’s at all times unhappy seeing somebody whose craft you admire working with unhealthy materials. Anyway, the primary Borderlands live-action film trailer is out as we speak, and it options some iconic A-list expertise like Cate Blanchett as Lilith, Jack Black as Claptrap, and Jamie Lee Curtis as Tannis. Kevin Hart can be right here.

Look, I’m not making an attempt to make too-quick a judgment name on Lionsgate’s try to deliver Gearbox’s wacky, zany, usually crude shooter RPG to the large display, however this trailer is giving Kirkland Signature Guardians of the Galaxy, with none of the wit. Everyone’s yelling, there are prolonged bodily fluid jokes, and it’s all set to “Do Ya” by The Strikes. That is solely two minutes of what is going to be a 90-minute+ film, nevertheless it certain doesn’t do a lot to make the film look really humorous—or prefer it’s an excellent use of the time and expertise concerned.


I like Borderlands, largely. I loved my time with the mainline video games, however greater than that, I really feel Tales from the Borderlands is secretly Telltale Video games’ greatest episodic journey sport. However this trailer appears like a supercut of Borderlands’ most unfunny tendencies. These video games could be fairly amusing, nevertheless it’s extra like each third joke will get a chuckle out of you, and the opposite two that got here earlier than are often simply crude or edgelord shit. It’s hardly a collection I affiliate with intellectual humor, however I suppose I might have anticipated to snicker at the least as soon as watching the trailer. As an alternative, we get prolonged piss and poop jokes. Oh, however the poop joke is from a robotic voiced by Jack Black. Isn’t it so foolish?

The film recreates loads of the identified visible components of the Borderlands video games, albeit with out the standard coat of cel-shaded paint. There are masked Psychos, the desolate wastelands of Pandora look shut sufficient, however rattling, poor Blanchett’s vivid pink wig is giving low cost cosplay. I don’t know, y’all. I wasn’t anticipating a lot, however bathroom humor and one-liners don’t give an excellent first impression. You may argue that Borderlands can’t facilitate a lot else, however for those who assume that, you must go play Tales from the Borderlands. The collection has loads of potential in the proper palms.

No less than everybody concerned is lastly getting to place the film out and transfer on with their lives. A Borderlands live-action film has been in varied types of improvement hell for nearly a decade, with plans initially set into movement in 2015. Hostel director Eli Roth was lastly given the director’s chair in 2020, with Blanchett’s casting following shortly after. After some reshoots in 2023, the film will premiere on August 9.
