In this report, as you might have guessed, we are going to bring you all that we know about the upcoming Borderlands movie in one place.

Borderlands release date

The film was initially announced back in 2015, but while Lionsgate stuck with the project, the original crew members attached to the adaptation left the project, before the current crew members arrived in 2020, taking over the project. Filming wrapped in 2021 and we can confirm that the Borderlands movie will officially premiere in theaters around the world on August 9, 2024.

How long is the Borderlands movie?

The runtime of a movie is always an important piece of information for fans, which is why everyone is eager to know how long a movie is going to be before they actually go and see it. As far as Borderlands is concerned, several sources list it as being 142 minutes (2 hours and 22 minutes) long, which will definitely give enough time to evolve the story properly.

Borderlands plot

The precise premise of the upcoming Borderlands movie is not known, but Lionsgate has released an official short teaser synopsis for the upcoming movie, and here is what they have revealed: “Lilith, 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. Lilith forms an alliance with an unexpected team – Roland, a former elite mercenary, now desperate for redemption; Tiny Tina, a feral pre-teen demolitionist; Krieg, Tina’s musclebound, rhetorically challenged protector; Tannis, the scientist with a tenuous grip on sanity; and Claptrap, 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.
