Ultramarines - A Warhammer 40,000 Movie is a CGI movie, made by Codex Pictures in collaboration with Games Workshop, written by Dan Abnett and directed by Martyn Pick. It was the first ever feature length movie to portray the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Originally, it was announced as a direct-to-DVD release for November 29th 2010, but was delayed for several days due to an issue with the Collector's Edition items.[1]

Plot summary

Captain Severus of the Ultramarines Chapter receives a distress signal from the Imperial Fists on the planet Mithron. Severus responds, taking only a ten-man squad of newly promoted Astartes with him while leaving the bulk of his company on Algol[2] to continue the bitter campaign against the scourge of Tyranids. On the merciless surface of the red planet, Ultima Squad discovers the aftermath of wretched battle. Mithron's Imperial shrine has been desecrated and abominable atrocities unleashed.[3]
