Lionsgate has finally released the first trailer for the long-awaited theatrical motion picture version of Borderlands, which finally hits theaters this August. Based on the hit video game franchise from Gearbox Software, the new film boasts an all-star cast, including Oscar-winner Cate Blanchett, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Edgar Ramírez, Ariana Greenblatt, Florian Munteanu, Gina Gershon, and Oscar-winner Jamie Lee Curtis.

Eli Roth directs the film from a script he co-wrote with Joe Crombie. The film will be hitting theaters on August 9 from Lionsgate. Here’s the official synopsis:

“Lilith (Blanchett), an infamous bounty hunter with a mysterious past, reluctantly returns to her home, Pandora, the most chaotic planet in the galaxy. Her mission is to find the missing daughter of Atlas (Ramírez), the universe’s most powerful S.O.B. Lilith forms an unexpected alliance with a ragtag team of misfits – Roland (Hart), a seasoned mercenary on a mission; Tiny Tina (Greenblatt), a feral pre-teen demolitionist; Krieg (Munteanu), Tina’s musclebound protector; Tannis (Curtis), the oddball scientist who’s seen it all; and Claptrap (Black), a wiseass robot. Together, these unlikely heroes must battle an alien species and dangerous bandits to uncover one of Pandora’s most explosive secrets. The fate of the universe could be in their hands – but they’ll be fighting for something more: each other.”
