It’s inevitable. The comparison between the Borderlands film and Guardians of the Galaxy, especially after the first trailer for the adaptation of the famous game franchise. And the film’s director, Eli Roth, knows this.

In an interview with Games Radar, he admitted that, yes, the concepts are similar, but he highlighted that there are very clear differences that the public will be able to notice: “There will be similarities no matter what you do, because of the nature of the subject. I was very conscious of not remaking Guardians of the Galaxy. (The public) will see the film and realize that it is different.”

Another interesting point in the chat is that Roth highlighted that he doesn’t want the title to be limited to a video game that became a movie: “I said, ‘I don’t want (the audience) to say, ‘Oh, that was a good video game movie.’ I want them to say, ‘That was a really fun sci-fi movie, period.’”.
