Eli Roth (Hostel) is run by Craig Mazin (Chernobyl) Borderlands screenplay with a variety of actors including Jamie Lee Curtis, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, Cate Blanchett, Gina Gershon and Edgar Ramirez.
Bye talk to CinemaBlend O Jungle cruiseEdgar Ramirez provided some information on his work on Borderlands movie. I haven’t played the game, but as far as I know, the story and characters are wacky. Everything takes place in a desolate world ruled by megacorporations, treasure hunters and bandits. Given the crazy antics that take place in the game, how is the movie going to appeal to moviegoers? Fortunately, Ramirez provides some reassurance on what to expect from the tone of the film.
“After all, games, movies, it’s all about storytelling. And the most iconic games like BorderlandsIt’s the storytelling and tone of the games that made them so special. So now I know the game. I didn’t know this before. And the tone is effective. I mean, it’s so dark, so witty, and so bizarre. This is a joke and kind of cocky. There is this attitude towards the game: “ I don’t give a damn, ” and this is what we saved and included in the film, so I am very glad that fans of the game will see this and see how respectful we treated the game. the tone of the game. “
Although the tone seems to remain the same, the official synopsis is different from the original material. According to PCGAMER resume for Borderlands the movie looks like this:
“Lilith (Blanchett), a notorious criminal with a mysterious past, reluctantly returns to his home planet Pandora to find the missing daughter of the universe’s most powerful bitch, Atlas (Ramirez). Lilith forges an alliance with an unexpected team – Roland (Hart), a former elite mercenary now desperate for redemption; Tiny Tina (Greenblatt), the feral pre-teen bomber; Krieg (Munteanu), Tina’s muscle-bound protector with a rhetorical challenge; Tannis (Curtis), a scientist with little understanding of sanity; and Claptrap (Black), the persistently wise robot. “
Again, I haven’t played this game, so I don’t know if any of the synopsis sounds familiar to me. It looks like Borderlands story to you? Anyway, the plot reminds me Escape from New York…
Any Borderlands fans who can provide some insight? Are you expecting precise adaptation? Or will it fit all the other damn video game adaptations out there? Really curious to hear your thoughts!
