Putting the “Shoot” in “Photoshoot”
The Borderlands movie production is in full swing. There’s an active Twitter account and everything. In the past few days, a bunch of character profiles have been released. They have a brief blurb introducing the characters and an identifiable silhouette of them. This photoshoot of theirs includes Cate Blanchett as Lilith, Kevin Hart as Roland, Jamie Lee Curtis as Tannis, Florian Munteanu as Krieg, Ariana Greenblatt as Tiny Tina, and Jack Black as Claptrap. As we see are their silhouettes, but from what we can discern, their costumes seem pretty faithful to the video games.
The characters go through a bit of a costume change throughout the games, but it seems that these costumes are based on the second game. Lilith has the hardcore hair sweep from Borderlands 2 and wears a full coat, and Roland also has the beret from Borderlands 2. If you look closely Krieg has his iconic bandit mask, boots, gauntlets, and buzz saw. Tannis appears to be wearing her red duster and has her own glowing ECHO. Tiny Tina also appears to have her iconic outfit. Her singular sleeve, rabbit-ear headband, tattered dress, and stuffed bunny all made it into wardrobe. Claptrap is there too, but pay him no attention. Maybe he’ll leave if we ignore him.
There are individual cast photos and a group photo. We can also see the movie’s logo on the Twitter account. It is a colorful explosion of purple, red, and yellow, with a solid gold title. Very deserving of the Borderlands franchise. For behind the scenes images, Tiny Tina actress Ariana Greenblatt has been very active on Twitter as the resident Gen Z. There is no official release date for the Borderlands movie.
