Borderlands has offered fans a glimpse at Cate Blanchett's Lilith, a siren-like woman with powerful abilities, who has been lifted straight from the first-person shooter game in which its based.

Taking to social media on Tuesday, June 1, the upcoming adaptation shared a black-and-white shot of Blanchett. Lit from behind, you can only make out the Australian actor's silhouette, but there's no mistaking the character's hair swish, shoulder pads, gun holsters and combat boots.

"With me around, you might actually get somewhere," it captioned the image.

Blanchett's co-star Jamie Lee Curtis, who's set to play Tannis, admitted to taking the sneaky behind-the-scenes photo on Instagram around about the same time Borderlands uploaded it on Twitter.

"Welcome to BORDERLANDS and a secret BTS shot I took of Lilith, our legendary heroine, psycho-blasting, vault-hunting vixen with a bad attitude and two Oscars to add to the baddasery in her tool belt, the once and future Queen of EVERYTHING," she wrote, before promising to post more "if you're nice" and the studio doesn't fire her.

"Soon you will get to see the amazing mix of adventure and badonkadonk action and comedy from the brilliant minds of [director Eli Roth] and game creator Randy Pitchford," Curtis concluded.

Love and Monsters' Ariana Greenblatt is also on board as 13-year old explosives expert Tiny Tina.
