Default Ultramarines: The Movie

What does everyone else think of this upcoming movie?

Personally i'd prefer a Blood Angels movie but Ultramarines are GWs first choice in all things, as long as Chaos appears though I will be content (Come on Night Lords). They have recently confirmed that Dan Abnett will be writing the script and Martyn Pick is directing the film, apparantely he was chosen for his ability to seamlessly blend animation and live-action into one film.

I do like the Blood Angels, Space Wolves, and [insert other Space Marine cliched chapters], but Ultramarines sum up the very essence of the Adeptus Astartes so I'm glad they're the focus of the film.
Blood Angels- Vampires, Space Wolves- Vikings/Werewolves...not exactly a great representation of the 40K background there for people who know very little about the rich fiction portrayed in 40K.

I do like the Ultramarines, Uriel Ventris and Pasanius Lysane in particular, but I prefer the Imperial Fists and Blood Angels. Out of all the chapters i'd say Ultramarines, Imperial Fists or Black Templars are the best choices, maybe Blood Ravens.

I just hope it's rated R. Too many good movies get ruined because of the quest for money and that PG-13 garbage. I'm definitely looking forward to it, I wonder if the XBox 360 game Space Marine will come out around the same time..yet another Ultramarines project.

Well they confirmed that the Space Marine game is being released April 2011.

And yeah, hopefully they make it as 40k should be and dont lower it for children standards.

That is not going to happen. With a straight to DVD release that's only going to be bought by their existing customer base, do you really think they'd cut out such a large segment of an already small (comparatively) market?

Id of prefered Guard to be honest. The audience can understand and feel for them a bit more than some other, slighty cooler, bulkier and blue stormtroopers. A film that represents the sheer horror of the millions of humans used to stop the Xenos races and Traitor scum and how there are thousands of tales of heroism in every day of fighting, yet these men die alone and forgotten, used as a living wall against the horrors, that lurk in the deep dark corners of the galaxy...

You never know even if it is a PG it might be like the Lord of the Rings, look at what they got away with all because the majority of gruesome deaths weren't human and didnt use red blood.
