We here at SF Signal are big fans of the Warhammer 40k novel tie-ins to the Games Workshop table top game, so it should be no surprise that we think a movie based on the WH40K universe is a capital idea. Turns out, an animated movie is in the works and its based on the Ultramarines, the best of the best of the Space Marines. It’s called, naturally enough, Ultramarines. We don’t have a full blown trailer, so this teaser will have to do:
Anything with John Hurt in it automatically has a high level of cool, but I’m still curious to see if the movie will be written well, or if it will be just another lame attempt to adapt a game/book to the silver screen. Luckily, Dan Abnett, who has written his share of excellent WH40K fiction, wrote the screenplay so that is one huge point in its favor. I know I’ll be watching when it comes out.
