    The Full Borderlands Movie Trailer is... Well, It's Certainly Something

    We have Guardians of the Galaxy at home.

    The full trailer for the upcoming Borderlands movie is out and wow is it ever a movie trailer. That much is certain. Look, maybe the full movie is fantastic. We're only seeing a couple of minutes here from the full film, so maybe the rush to judgment isn't warranted.

    Still, you can't help but go in with a fair bit of skepticism after yesterday's brief teaser showing off some of the cast as they appear in the movie. Even after...
