Gearbox Has Finished Filming Borderlands

Where is the first Borderlands movie trailer?

Not too far away, hopefully, as the Borderlands movie has officially finished filming.

Gearbox shared the news on Twitter, alongside a first look at Claptrap in full form and not just silhouette.

As yet, however, we still don’t have a firm Borderlands movie release date.

Filming might be finished, but there’s still work to be done.

After the actors leave the set, directors, producers, and editors still have to edit the film and optimize audio and other effects — assuming there aren’t any reshoots required.

Gearbox Has Finished Filming Borderlands

Still, with the film set to release sometime in 2022, we’ll likely be seeing the first Borderlands movie trailer in the next few months.

If you needed a refresher, here’s what the Borderlands movie is all about:

Two-time Academy Award 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 universe’s most powerful S.O.B.
She forms an unexpected alliance with a ragtag team of misfits – Roland (Hart), once a highly respected soldier, but now desperate for redemption; Tiny Tina (Ariana Greenblatt), a feral pre-teen demolitionist; Krieg (Florian Munteanu), Tina’s musclebound, rhetorically challenged protector; Tannis (Jamie Lee Curtis), the scientist who’s seen it all; and Claptrap (Jack Black), a persistently wiseass 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 fate of the universe could be in their hands – but they’ll be fighting for something more: each other. Based on one of the best-selling videogame franchises of all time, welcome to Borderlands.

While the movie will doubtlessly stray from the Borderlands games in some ways, Kevin Hart said it stays true to the games and their spirit nonetheless.
