Edgar Ramirez, who portraits Atlas in the upcoming Borderlands movie, said that fans of the Borderlands video game series should be excited about the Borderlands movie. He mentioned this during an interview with CinemaBlend.
Ramirez isn’t much of a gamer and therefore wasn’t too familiar with the Borderlands franchise before he landed the role of Atlas. However, he quickly fell in love with the film’s tone and combination of humor and darkness. “In the end, games, movies, it’s all about storytelling,” Ramirez said.
I mean it’s so dark and so witty and so whimsical as well. It’s so in on the joke and kind of like impudent. There’s a ‘I don’t give a damn’ attitude to the game, and that’s what we rescued and put into the movie so I’m very excited for the fans of the game to see it and see how respectful we were to the tone of the game.Edgar Ramirez
