Borderlands: First picture of Claptrap from the movie


For all fans of the shooter series Borderlands who are longingly waiting for the movie of the same name, there is good news. As Lionsgate and the development studio Gearbox Software announced in the social media channels, the shooting has now been completed. Much of it has taken place in various locations in Hungary for a few months. The last stone fell recently.

However, the production of the film is far from over. So far only all scenes with the real actors are in the can. This is followed by a long and complex post-processing phase with CGI characters and other effects. Incidentally, this includes the Claptrap robot, known from the games and very popular with many fans, which is originally set to music by actor Jack Black. The first picture of this wacky character is now available. Claptrap delivers the news of the completion of the shooting in the form of a sign.

However, it is not yet known when exactly the Borderlands film will be released. The premiere in the cinemas is planned for 2022, but no specific date has currently been set. Besides Jack Black, there are a few other well-known actors on board. You can look forward to performances by Cate Blanchett (Lilith), Jamie Lee Curtis (Tannis), Kevin Hart (Roland) and Ariana Greenblatt (Tiny Tina). Eli Roth (Grindhouse) is responsible for the direction.

The 'Borderlands' movie is done filming

It's a wrap for the Borderlands movie production, now that the cast and crew are done with principal photography. To celebrate the event, Gearbox and Lionsgate have released our first clear look at the movie version of the franchise's sassy, mouthy robot Claptrap. They've only shown us images with silhouettes of the characters before this, but now we have a high-res photo of Claptrap with a clapper board announcing that the filming is done.

In the movie based on Gearbox's first-person shooter franchise, Cate Blanchett plays Lilith, a treasure hunter who returns to her home planet of Pandora. To find the missing daughter of Atlas (described at the the universe's most powerful S.O.B.), she teams up with Roland (Kevin Hart) who was once a highly respected soldier, pre-teen demolitionist Tiny Tina (Ariana Greenblatt) and her musclebound protector Krieg (Florian Munteanu), Tannis (Jamie Lee Curtis) the scientist and Claptrap (Jack Black) the sassy robot. 'These unlikely heroes must battle alien monsters and dangerous bandits to find and protect the missing girl, who may hold the key to unimaginable power,' the movie's synopsis reads.

Lionsgate announced that Hostel director and Inglourious Basterds star Eli Roth will direct the Borderlands movie adaptation in early 2020. The project has been in development since 2015, but production didn't officially start until late last year. Now that filming is done, all we can do is wait for a premiere date and hope that the movie will do the games justice.
