‘Borderlands’ cast unite in first footage
The characters of the Borders Gearbox and 2K video games have such distinctive silhouettes. Creators of the future Borders movie (including director Eli Roth) cleverly recognized this and didn’t just replicate them in the movie – they’re using them to promote the movie to fans of the games as proof of the movie’s loyalty to the source material.
In the first still from the recently released film, you’ll see the outlines (left to right) of Florian Munteanu as Krieg, Ariana Greenblatt as Tiny Tina, Jamie Lee Curtis as Tannis, Cate Blanchett as Lilith, Kevin Hart as Roland and Claptrap , voiced by Jack Black. There are also black and white solo shots of each member of the group:

Here’s the official synopsis for the film:
Oscar twice® Winner Cate Blanchett teams up with Kevin Hart in director Eli Roth’s Borderlands. Lilith (Blanchett), an infamous treasure hunter with a mysterious past, reluctantly returns to her home planet of Pandora to find the missing daughter of Atlas (Edgar Ramirez), the most powerful SOB in the universe. She forms an unexpected alliance with a motley team of misfits. – Roland (Hart), once a highly respected soldier, but now desperate for redemption; Tiny Tina (Ariana Greenblatt), a pre-teen savage demolition; Krieg (Florian Munteanu), Tina’s muscled protector, rhetorically challenged; Tannis (Curtis), the scientist who has seen it all; and Claptrap (Black), an ever-wise robot. These unlikely heroes must battle alien monsters and dangerous bandits to find and protect the missing girl, who perhaps holds the key to unimaginable power. The fate of the universe may be in their hands, but they will fight for something more: for each other. Based on one of the best-selling video game franchises of all time, welcome to Borderlands.
Borders does not yet have an official release date, but it will be hitting theaters via Lionsgate soon.
