Black can next be seen in Lionsgate's Borderlands, a science fiction action comedy film based on the popular video game.

Their fourth studio album, Post-Apocalypto, is available across streaming platforms. In conjunction with the album's release, the duo also released an original six-episode animated series called Tenacious D in Post-Apocalypto, which was illustrated frame-by-frame entirely by Black and released on YouTube. Additionally, in September 2020, they will release the final piece of the Post-Apocalypto universe, Post-Apocalypto: The Graphic Novel which Jack Black drew and Kyle Gass wrote, complete with accompanied audio. a The band's additional projects include the early feature film Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny and two follow-up documentaries, The Making of 'The Pick of Destiny' and D Tour: A Tenacious Documentary, which focused on the band's world tour in support of their film and soundtrack.

Previously, Black could be heard as the voice of "Po" in all three installments of DreamWorks Animation's smash franchise Kung Fu Panda and starred as "R.L. Stein" in Sony Pictures' hit movie Goosebumps. He also starred in the critically-acclaimed independent film Bernie, a role for which he earned a 2013 Golden Globe nomination for "Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical" and a 2013 Independent Spirit Awards nomination for "Best Male Lead." Additionally, he topped the box office with Tropic Thunder, School of Rock (which earned him his first Golden Globe nomination for "Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical") and the Academy Award-winning blockbuster film King Kong.

In September 2018, Black received a star on the renowned Hollywood Walk of Fame for his storied film career, which has included roles in Don't Worry He Won't Get Far On Foot, The House With A Clock In Its Walls, The Polka King, The D Train, Gulliver's Travels, The Big Year, The Muppets, Nacho Libre, Bob Roberts, High Fidelity, Saving Silverman, Year One, Shallow Hal, Ice Age, Orange County, Envy, Shark Tale, and The Holiday.
