The Borderlands movie, which has been officially in some sort of development since 2015, will finally be released on August 9th, 2024, according to a post from the movie’s Twitter account. The film is directed by Eli Roth (who also directed horror movies like Hostel and The Green Inferno) and stars Cate Blanchett, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Ariana Greenblatt, Florian Munteanu, and Jamie Lee Curtis.

The Borderlands movie Twitter account didn’t share anything else besides the below image; if you were hoping for a trailer, you’re going to have to keep waiting.

If you scroll back on that account, though, it’s shared some images that could give us a hint of what to expect. Here’s one of Claptrap the robot, who will be played by Black. (I hope he’s as good as he was in The Super Mario Bros. Movie.) And here’s a photo of the silhouettes of the cast; we’ll have to wait for a future reveal to see the characters in their full costumes.
