BORDERLANDS Movie Officially Wraps Production With A First Look At Jack Black's Claptrap

We've seen some silhouettes of the main characters from Eli Roth's Borderlands adaptation already, but now that the movie has officially wrapped production, we have a full reveal of Claptrap the robot.

Cabin Fever director Eli Roth's adaptation of Gearbox Software and 2K's Borderlands video game only started shooting last month, but the movie's official Twitter account has now revealed that production has already wrapped with a first proper look at Claptrap.

We got a silhouetted glimpse of the robot, who will be voiced by Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle actor Jack Black, as part of a series of recent character teases, but we couldn't make out any details. This shot confirms that Claptrap's design will be practically identical to that of his video game counterpart.

Black Joins Cate Blanchett (Thor: Ragnarok) as Lilith, Jamie Lee Curtis (Halloween) as Tannis, Kevin Hart (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) as Roland, Ariana Greenblatt (Avengers: Infinity War) as Tiny Tina, Edgar Ramirez (Jungle Cruise) as Atlas, and Florian Munteanu (Creed) as Krieg.

Borderlands is a somewhat bizarre and very violent first-person, loot-based shooter which focuses on four “Vault Hunters” fending off local marauders while searching for advanced alien tech on a planet called Pandora. There have been three games released so far, and all have done very well.

Check out the official synopsis below.

“In the movie Lilith (Blanchett), an infamous outlaw with a mysterious past, reluctantly returns to her home planet of Pandora to find the missing daughter of the universe’s most powerful S.O.B., Atlas (Ramirez). Lilith forms an alliance with an unexpected team – Roland (Hart), a former elite mercenary, now desperate for redemption; Tiny Tina (Greenblatt), a feral pre-teen demolitionist; Krieg (Munteanu), Tina’s musclebound, rhetorically challenged protector; Tannis (Curtis), the scientist with a tenuous grip on sanity; and Claptrap (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.”

This big-screen take is being developed at Lionsgate and will work off a script from Chernobyl screenwriter Craig Mazin. Roth will also produce along with Avi and Ari Arad through their Arad Productions banner.
