The moment fans have been waiting for is finally here... for the first time, the Warhammer 40,000 universe will be realised in a feature-length movie on DVD.

Ultramarines is a 70-minute sci-fi thriller that will use CGI and state-of-the-art animation production techniques. Games Workshop is delighted to be working with UK-based production company Codex Pictures, who have the momentous task of bringing the Warhammer 40,000 universe to the screen.

Hmm, never heard of the studio. Oh well, if GW keep as tight a leash on it as they do other things using their IP, it should turn out to be decent. Shame it's about the Ultramarine's, though, there's far better chapters.

I wish it was about any other chapter/army/race. Ultramrines are probably the most bland and boring part of the 40k universe. It would be awesome if it was about the Horus Heresy instead. Or about the Dark Angels.

Waiting for an appropriate time to link this has paid off it seems. I can hardly think of a more appropriate time:



Just to be safe, this is fan made and has nothing to do with the upcoming movie whatsoever.

The marines forums all over the interwebz first picked it up early this year, due to the timing of April Fool's I didn't give it much thought... Looks like it's true.

But who are Codex Pictures? It almost sounds akin to a Forgeworld spinoff of Games Workshop itself. If that is really so, I do hope they are proliferic in their work. FOR THE EMPEROR!

and FER DIE KAISER!!! =P

@Keroko: ...pleased aren't we?

How come it doesn't turn me on ?
If it's just big guys in giant armors shooting at each other, it's going to be boring fast.
The universe is awesome and allows all sorts of dark plots, but this movie seems to go for mindless action.


My favorite Games Workshop inspired video is still the Mark of Chaos opening (even though the game is the worse GW game since Shadow of the Horned Rat). I used to play Fantasy Battle and the Pen & Paper RPG, so I am biased toward the Fantasy verse though.

Graphics seem subpar after you compare it to what Relic had done in DoW 2.

I'm not fan of those do-gooder smurfts but movie is at least worth a watch on rental at least when you have Mr. Abnett working on the script.

First reviews out of the Ultramarines movie:

Fan review on Youtube

Bell of Lost Souls: Ultramarines First Impressions

Very good first impressions it seems, along with the comments about non-40K knowledgeables enjoying the film.

I watched this in London last weekend, it was great, could had done with more action and less Space Marine death, but for a 40k flim, it was like porn.

I swear the Ultramarines get too much attention -_- they're way too.. vanilla. Stereotypical macho good guys. Boring. We need more VARIETY.. but hey wth, how many movies are we likely to get? Good enough I guess

That said, any idea when/if this will be released to some of the rather more obscure parts of the world (eg Australasia)? Somehow I get the feeling some of us are going to miss out D:

This film suffered in the same way that the third Gunsmith Cats OVA (ironicaly called "High Speed Edge."): It wasted the potential of badass characters who were meant to be One-Man Armies and Gods-Amongst-Men by putting them into slow and ponderous situations that made them weak and vulnerable.

That said, for what it is worth, the few monstrously violent moments of hand to hand combat was worth the price of admission alone.

There's so much lore in both 40k and Warhammer worlds that i'm surprised it has taken this long for any sort of feature length video of it to come out.
There's a crazy amount of potential to turn into movies, TV, animation. You wouldnt have to be fans of the tabletop game to enjoy it. Would be like LOTR films but with almost no limit to number of films that could be made

I've just saw the movie today and I say it was awesome. The minus point is that it was kinda hard to distinguish each char. And I am not talking when they had their helmets on .

Do you think the cinema attendant will kick me out if I went into the hall cosplaying as an Ultramarine?

With just the right acting, you'll easily persuade the attendant Chainsword also works.
