For anyone who doesn’t know what Warhammer is, we can tell you…its one of the most popular and successful wargame franchises of all time! Yeah! Pretty impressive!
And now it comes re-imagined and brought to life as a dazzling, blood-soaked CG animated movie. Featuring the vocal talents of Terence Stamp, John Hurt and Sean Pertwee, its called Ultramarines: A Warhammer 40,000 Movie.
So what happens in this film?
It is the 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 discover that a horrific evil has been unleashed. Amidst a living nightmare of chaos, carnage, and daemonic fury, these steel battle-brothers must now survive the ultimate enemy: themselves.
Sounds pretty cool no?
It’s loud, it’s bloody, it has unfeasibly well-armoured Space Marines firing huge guns at anything that moves and features one of the most impressively fearsome villains we’ve seen in ages. Pure boy’s own, sci-fi escapism at its best.
It explodes onto DVD and Blu-ray on 17th June – so Warhammer fans and those curious about Warhammer, make sure you pick up a copy!
Happy shopping gamers!
