CinemaCon Captivated by Gripping Trailer

Lionsgate ensured fans were satiated by unveiling an extended trailer at CinemaCon. The energy in the room was palpable as spectators savored a glimpse of what promises to be a thrilling, fantasy-filled spectacle. Chris Bumbray, editor-in-chief at JoBlo, was impressed, noting the vibrant action and continuous ’70s music, akin to the beloved Guardians of the Galaxy franchise.

Roth’s Retro Resurgence in Borderlands

Roth vows to herald in an era of nostalgia with Borderlands. His vison for the film roots deep into his childhood favorites, Raiders of the Lost Ark and Mad Max. Beyond providing vivid imagery, Roth seeks to breathe life into our favorite actors, even ambitiously imagining an action-packed role for actress Cate Blanchett, far removed from her often dignified portrayals.

Ariana Greenblatt Proves Herself a Rising Star

Greenblatt caught Roth’s attention for her exceptional portrayal of Tiny Tina. Notoriously critical, Roth was wowed by Greenblatt’s audition and equated her deep knowledge of the industry to young Natalie Portman’s performance in ‘The Professional’, a commendable achievement.

Some of the charismatic characters include Cate Blanchett as Lilith, Kevin Hart as Roland, Edgar Ramirez as Atlas, and Jamie Lee Curtis as Tannis. Not to shy away from star power, blockbuster favorite Jack Black adds his signature voice to the robot, Claptrap.

Borderlands Narrative Unearthed

The narrative revolves around Lilith, the notorious outlaw who is forced to revisit her home planet Pandora to locate Atlas’ lost daughter, a potential universal powerhouse. This thrusts her into an unlikely alliance with a determined team, spearheaded by a persistent robot. Together, they face mutant alien creatures and perilous rogues to fulfill their epic mission.

A Masterclass in Movie Production

Borderlands boasts a production team packed with industry elites. Producers Avi and Ari Arad, Gearbox founder Randy Pitchford, Erik Feig, and Strauss Zelnick of Take-Two Interactive overlook the project.
