Anchor Bay Entertainment has issued a new clip and bonus feature segment from the upcoming Blu-ray release of Ultramarines: A Warhammer 40,000 Movie. The first feature length movie interpretation of the internationally successful Warhammer 40,000 Universe arrives on Blu-ray on March 5th.
It is 41st Millennium, and the only force that stands between humanity and alien hordes are the Space Marines. Genetically enhanced, clad in power armor and knowing no fear, they are the angels of death. And the greatest of them are the Ultramarines. But when a select squad of scarred veterans and raw recruits responds to a distant planet's distress beacon, they'll discover that a horrific evil has been unleashed. The film features the voice talents of Terence Stamp (Superman II, Wanted), Sean Pertwee (Dog Soldiers, Event Horizon) and John Hurt (Alien, Hellboy) and contains over 45 minutes of bonus features including "Into The Void: Making of Ultramarines," "Between Chaos & Darkness: The World Of The Space Marines," "Creating the Daemon" and an Ultramarines animated graphic novel prequel.
Created by Games Workshop, Warhammer 40,000 has been developed into a series of popular video games and futuristic novels, all from its roots as the most successful tabletop wargame in the world.
sigh. This looks like a big let down for me- like @rickah88 i think this looks little more than cut scenes from a game, not a full animated film.
It's such a big, expansive universe, it seems a shame that WH40K will have this as it's first feature.
I though this was already available on BR. Anyway, I saw it on DVD when it came out and it was really bad. The animation is OK (not good, but acceptable) but the story is wafer-thin and really badly executed.
