The film of Borderlands signed by Eli Roth has finished filming and, to celebrate the event (which arrived earlier than expected), the official social channels of the franchise have broadcast the first official image of the movie version of the adorable Claptrap.
Voiced by Jack Black, the film version of the famous robot seems to have remained faithful to its videogame counterpart. Fans have therefore lit the hope that the other characters can actually be the accurate transposition on the big screen of the protagonists met in the video game.
