Anchor Bay Entertainment has announced the March 5th Blu-ray™ and DVD release of the Sci-Fi CGI animated film Ultramarines, a Warhammer® 40,000® Universe film. The film stands as the first ever feature length movie interpretation of the internationally successful Warhammer® 40,000 world.
The official plot is as follows:
It is 41st Millennium, and the only force that stands between humanity and alien hordes are the Space Marines. Genetically enhanced, clad in power armour 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. And amidst a living nightmare of chaos, carnage and daemonic fury, these steel battle-brothers must now survive the ultimate enemy: Themselves.
Ultramarines features the talented voice work 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 a cool Ultramarines™ “prequel” animated onscreen graphic novel.
