“Close in. No more drills, no more practice. You are all about to receive the honour of going into combat for the first time, as Ultramarines [...] We march for Macragge!”
“And we shall know no fear!”
–Ultramarines: A Warhammer 40,000 Movie
Responding to a distress call from an Imperial Shrine World, a fearless squad of Ultramarines are sent on a dangerous mission of investigation. But will they be ready for the foul minions of Chaos that await them?
Ultramarines: A Warhammer 40,000 Movie, the first ever-feature length film interpretation of Games Workshop’s popular science fiction universe, will soon be available on Blu-ray! Debuting at Games Workshop’s upcoming UK Games Day, Codex Pictures’ high-definition version of Ultramarines presents the grim future in stunning detail, along with a host of exciting special features.
In the grim darkness of the far future...
Sure to appeal to fans of Deathwatch, Black Crusade, or tense science-fantasy action, Ultramarines: A Warhammer 40,000 Movie is a thriller set in the 41st millennium, when the galaxy is burning and there is nothing but war. Mankind's sole defence against the lurking alien races are the Space Marines, genetically enhanced super-warriors, for whom loyalty to their emperor is all. The most fearless chapter of this mighty army is the Ultramarines.
With a voice cast led by Terence Stamp (Superman, Valkyrie), John Hurt (Alien, Hellboy) and Sean Pertwee (Event Horizon, Dog Soldiers), Ultramarines uses state-of-the-art facial capture technology and stunning CGI animation to bring powerfully to life the Space Marines characters and their adversaries.

Deathwatch is a roleplaying game in which players take on the roles of the bio-engineered super-soldiers known as Space Marines. United with their battle-brothers, players will complete extraordinary missions involving some of the greatest heroes and deadliest opponents the Warhammer 40,000 universe has to offer.
not a bad movie, it at least gives some artistic interpretations of what a thunder hawk and power armor look and feel like.
I have the original deluxe pre-order version. This is a cool movie and I am hoping that they are able to make more. I would love a Guard movie: Gaunt's Ghosts would be too awesome!
