Eli Roth , Joe Crombie

A movie based on the post-apocalyptic video game Borderlands was first announced back in 2015, making it another 2024 action movie that seemed like it was never really going to happen. However, with a release date of August 9, 2024, the sci-fi Western film is finally a done deal. Directed by Eli Roth, Borderlands has an excellent cast list that includes names like Jack Black, Jamie Lee Curtis, Kevin Hart, Ariana Greenblatt, and Cate Blanchett in a story that will follow a misfit team on a mission to save a young girl of significant power.


The

The Crow (2024)

The Crow (2024) is a dark and gritty reboot of the cult classic film, set in a grim urban landscape. It follows Eric Draven, a musician who is resurrected from the dead to avenge his and his fiancée’s brutal murders. Armed with supernatural abilities and guided by a mystical crow, Eric seeks justice against the criminals responsible, navigating through a corrupt city that is as much a character as he is. This revival pays homage to the original while introducing new elements to captivate the modern audience.

Budget
$50 Million


The long-awaited reimagining of the 1994 movie The Crow is finally coming to theaters on August 23, 2024. It had originally been slated for a June release, and after 15 years in development hell, this delay was a significant disappointment. However, an August release will mean that The Crow won’t have to compete with Bad Boys: Ride or Die. The part of Erik Draven will be played by Bill Skarsgård, who will be joined by musician FKA Twigs as fiance Shelly Webster and Isabella Wei as Zadie. As with any other reboot, The Crow will be under heavy scrutiny when it is finally released, but hopefully, such an impressive cast can pull it off.
