On the heels of yesterday's villainous character posters, Lionsgate has released the first clip from Eli Roth's adaptation of Gearbox Software and 2K's Borderlands first-person-shooter video game.

In this sneak peek, we see the team attempt to keep Claptrap the robot from making too much noise while he "expels lead," but it's too late, and the crew is ambushed by a group of bad guys. Fortunately, at least a few of our heroes are well able to handle business, with Lilith notching up the biggest body-count.

Check out the action-packed clip at the link below.

Borderlands is a somewhat bizarre and very violent first-person, loot-based shooter which focuses on four โ€œVault Huntersโ€ fending off local marauders while searching for advanced alien tech on a planet called Pandora. There have been three games released so far, and all have done very well.

Check out the official synopsis below.

โ€œIn the movie Lilith (Blanchett), an infamous outlaw with a mysterious past, reluctantly returns to her home planet of Pandora to find the missing daughter of the universeโ€™s most powerful S.O.B., Atlas (Ramirez). Lilith forms an alliance with an unexpected team โ€“ Roland (Hart), a former elite mercenary, now desperate for redemption; Tiny Tina (Greenblatt), a feral pre-teen demolitionist; Krieg (Munteanu), Tinaโ€™s musclebound, rhetorically challenged protector; Tannis (Curtis), the scientist with a tenuous grip on sanity; and Claptrap (Black), a persistently wiseass robot.

These unlikely heroes must battle alien monsters and dangerous bandits to find and protect the missing girl, who may hold the key to unimaginable power. The fate of the universe could be in their hands โ€“ but theyโ€™ll be fighting for something more: each other.โ€

This big-screen take was developed at Lionsgate and works off a script from Chernobyl screenwriter Craig Mazin. Roth also produced along with Avi and Ari Arad through their Arad Productions banner.

The movie is set to hit theaters on August 9. What do you make of this first look? Drop us a comment down below, and keep an eye out for a first trailer.
