Borderlands Movie Clip Reveals Claptrap’s Bullet Shenanigans

Gearbox’s Borderlands games are widely known for their sense of humor, with Borderlands 2 being a standout for its comedic elements. The upcoming live-action film seems to carry on this tradition, as evidenced by the first clip released.

The clip, unveiled by Lionsgate at IGN Fan Fest, showcases series favorite Claptrap (voiced by Jack Black) in a peculiar situation where he seemingly produces an excessive amount of bullets. While the scene may not resonate with everyone, especially those unfamiliar with the games’ humor, it certainly captures the franchise’s quirky tone.

Will the Fallout TV Series Capture the Essence of the Games?

Aside from Claptrap’s antics, the clip features the Vault Hunters—Roland (Kevin Hart), Tannis (Jamie Lee Curtis), Tina (Ariana Greenblatt), Krieg (Florian Munteau), and Lilith (Cate Blanchett)—engaging in action-packed sequences against raiders. While the action is promising, some fans may notice the absence of the series’ signature class skills, which could have added more depth to the confrontation.

Cate Blanchett’s portrayal of a sci-fi gunslinger stands out, hinting at a potentially compelling performance in the full movie. However, some viewers may find the clip lacking the over-the-top violence and humor that define the Borderlands games. To truly capture the essence of the series, the film may need to dial up the absurdity, introducing weapons with unique and fantastical abilities.

Looking Ahead to the Borderlands Movie Release

Borderlands is set to hit theaters on August 9, with fans hoping for a closer alignment to the games’ blend of nonsensical violence and intentional humor. As the movie continues to develop, it’s crucial that it embraces the spirit of the beloved franchise to deliver an authentic and entertaining experience.
