An animated film based on the popular Games Workshop tabletop miniature game will be storming Blu-ray in March.
In an early announcement to retailers, Starz/Anchor Bay is working on 'Ultramarines: A Warhammer 40,000 Movie' for Blu-ray on March 5.
It is 41st Millennium, and the only force that stands between humanity and the 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 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.
The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include Into The Void: Making of Ultramarines; Between Chaos & Darkness: The World Of The Space Marines; Creating the Daemon; and an Ultramarines prequel animated on-screen graphic novel.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $24.97.
