While conversation with CinemaBlend about Jungle cruise, Edgar Ramirez nevertheless gave some information about his work on Borderlands film. I haven’t played the game, but as far as I know, the story and characters are crazy. It all happens in a desert world, ruled by mega-corporations, treasure hunters and bandits. With the crazy antics going on in the game, how does the film translate for movie lovers? Fortunately, Ramirez provides some certainty about what to expect with the tone of the film.
“In the end, games, movies, it’s all about telling stories. And the most famous games, like Borderlands, is the storytelling and tone of the games that made them so special. So now I know the game. I didn’t know that before. And the tone is spectacular. I mean, it’s so dark, so witty and so moody. It’s so joking and kind of cheeky. There’s an “I don’t care” attitude towards the game, and that’s what we saved and put into the film, so I’m very excited that fans of the game will see it and see how much we were respected for the game. tone of play. ”
Although it sounds as if the tone will remain constant, the official synopsis looks different from the original material. According to PCGAMER summary for Borderlands the film is as follows:
“Lilith (Blanchett), a notorious outlaw with a mysterious past, reluctantly returns to his home planet Pandora to find the missing daughter of the most powerful space bomber, Atlas (Ramirez). Lilith makes an alliance with an unexpected team – Roland (Hart), a former elite mercenary, now desperate for redemption; Little Tina (Greenblatt), a wild teenage destroyer; Krieg (Munteanu), Tina’s muscular, rhetorically challenged protector; Tannis (Curtis), a scientist who has little to do with common sense; and Claptrap (Black), a persistently wise robot. ”
Again, I didn’t play the game, so I don’t know if any of the synopses seem familiar. Does this sound like a Borderlands a story for you? If nothing else, the plot reminds me of Escape from New York.
Any Borderlands fans who can give you some insight? Do you expect a faithful adaptation? Or will this fall in line with all the other damn video game adaptations that exist? I am really curious to hear your thoughts!
