It's been many moons since Codex Pictures released Ultramarines:the movie, and they hinted that one day it would be coming in Blu-Ray. Well that day is March 5th 2013!
And anchor Bay thinks you BoLS readers would enjoy a sampling of the extra features... (including Phil Kelly's sideburns)
Sample Bonus Feature: Between Darkness and Chaos
the press release
On March 5th, Anchor Bay Entertainment proudly releases the Sci-Fi CGI animated film Ultramarines™ on Blu-ray™, DVD and digital download. This is the first-ever feature length movie interpretation of the internationally successful Warhammer® 40,000® Universe. The film stars the voices of Terence Stamp (Superman II, Wanted), Sean Pertwee (Dog Soldiers, Event Horizon) and John Hurt (Alien, Hellboy) and contains over 45 minutes of bonus features including Into The Void: Making of Ultramarines™, Between Chaos & Darkness: The World Of The Space Marines, Creating the Daemon and a cool Ultramarines™ “prequel” animated onscreen graphic novel.
It is 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’ll 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.
Created by Games Workshop®, Warhammer® 40,000® has been developed into a series of successful video games and futuristic novels from its roots as the most successful tabletop wargame in the world, Ultramarines™ is the Warhammer® 40,000® universe as you’ve never been able to experience it before. So get ready and suit up for a thrilling battle in a brand new world, because this time it’s for real - it’s not just a game anymore.
