Hey I stumbled upon this

I mean who's watched the Ultramarine's movie? Do you think this trailer is vast improvement from the Ultramarines moive in terms of Graphics?

It looks good, though some of the animation looks a bit botched. More sluggish I think the correct term would be. It's a shame some big company doesn't take it upon themselves to do a genuine Games Workshop production. We need only look at the intro scenes for Dawn of War to see what can be done. THQ should get on it. Would rock!

The Space Marine / Ultramarine film was good, but I think the animation and computer rendering let it down. The models were okay at best, and the story was extremely slow to start up I thought.

Looked good to me, not brilliant but anything is better than nothing.

I agree with Alakazam, some film company should take up the challenge of making a 40k film. Not only would the fans go but the amount of gore and action involved would definitely bring a very large audience.

Graphics look quite better than the Ultramarines movie in my opinion. Animations look a bit stiff though.

The voice acting needs the most work IMHO. But the trailer is damned impressive for an entirely fan-made project.

I would love to see a full blown 40K movie. Yet I wonder if Games Workshop themselves is something of an obstacle due to their reputation when it comes to monetary matters.

Care to elaborate here?

I'd agree with this. Graphics surpass that of the Ultramarines movie, though animation doesn't. Seems we either get one or the other, not both. :lulz:

Well I don't know how true any of it is, but I've met a lot of people who claim that GW overcharges for everything and will use the slightest excuse to send an army of lawyers after anyone. Not unusual corporate behavior for sure, but I wonder if that means they'd be somewhat difficult to work with.

Then again, they certainly seemed to have worked out a good deal with Relic/THQ over the years. So I don't see why a healthy relationship with GW wouldn't be possible for somebody looking to make a major movie.

Suffice to say, you'd think they'd be able to rake in the money if an actual, official feature-film were to be put through development and released. If they successfully managed with a first, just think of the possibilities. The number of battles and stories that could be told. You could essentially bring w40k to the same height as Star Trek, Star Wars and other high-aimed sci-fi themes. They'd make a fortune.

This too.

I watched the Ultramarines last night. It's a nice movie but it could be better. This one definitely looks better then the Ultramarines.

Granyaski;5595001I agree with Alakazam, some film company should take up the challenge of making a 40k film. Not only would the fans go but the amount of gore and action involved would definitely bring a very large audience.

Agreed. Ultramarines did show us some bloody scenes like massacred Imperial Fists and Ultramarine's captain brutally fighting Chaos marines,but in my opinion that was not enough. I expect to see more bloody hand to hand fighting,something like sync-kills in DoW. I also expect the next movie to be a little longer.

Ultramarines was awesome. Would have been better had they done the Blood Angels. Just sayin :D

This looks much better. Those tanks (Did not recognize them as Predators) rolling along was very well done. The aerial shots and of the Capital ship damaged was also well done.

From what I have heard Games Workshop is fanatical on detail and control of rights so in that respect they are very hard to work with.

It took so long to get Lord Of The Ring movies because the family felt there was not anyone who would do it with fanatical devotion to detail and do it faithfully. Until Peter Jackson came along. GW is similar.
