Yup the trailer is up for Ultramarines The Movie
Worth checking out this time, although the trailer is short and gets off to a slow start there is at least some glimmers of coolness.
Yes its looking like a Dawn of War intro – not quite as sharp though.
You can also view it here.
So what do you guys think? I suppose my take on this is its still too early to tell, but I have mixed feelings about this. I see real signs these days that the 40k universe is about to come alive – and we could well see a big budget outing coming from a large studio – my hunch is that this cgi movie is a proof of concept for one of two things:
1) Proove to the studios that the universe can be worked with and is ready for the big budget treatment.
2) See if the existing fan base would buy any old crap that’s thrown at them and it turn into an adhoc product like the Audio Books.
You know there is also the possibility that GW just don’t have any real clue how its going to pan out and are trying it because the intros do so well on Youtube.
