It would be so cool if they made a 40k movie. The opening scene before the opening credits could be the Horus Heresy... you know The emperor is sitting on a throne and says to his advisor:
"Bring Horus before me so he may be judged"
"Right away my lord."
Next scene Horus is looking down at Istaavn IV with a grin. The planet is on fire and explosions are everywhere. Horus looks out the right window and sees a fleet approaching. Next seen you see a Raven Guard Marine and Sergeant crouching behind cover(sandbags, wall etc..) and they're talking:
"Where the hell is our back-up?"
"They're gone sir. The damn World Eaters took 'em all out."
"Damn," he says, while he punches through the sandbag,"How many does that make?"
"Three thousand dead, ten thousand missing, and nine traitor legions."
"Oh My God!"
As the sergeant looks over the marine,
A hord of Blood stained marines are rushing towards them with hundreds of Daemons.
"May the Emperor guide us, laddie." says the sergeant as he puts his hand on the young marine's shoulder.
"Die, worshipers of a false God!" yells one of the Chaos marines.
The two marines raise there guns and fire.
Cut picture to Horus on his command deck. A little adept with a mutated face looks at Horus and says:
"We have taken victory."
"Now where to, my lord."
"Take me to see my father."
"Yes, my Lord."
Cut picture to Terra: The Emperor is standing at a window, looking at the sky: The clouds are black and the sky is red. Everywhere on the ground Marines and Imperial Guard are running around: Tanks are comming to life, Sentinals are starting up, Dreadnoughts are awakening and roaring with hatred at for the Chaos Marines, in the distance Warlord Titans are marching to the front line.
Cut scene to a Hill coverd with Bodies. At the top of the hill, Chaos Marines are yelling and roaring with rage, at the bottom Rhinos, Land raiders, Lemon Russ tanks, and Dreadnoughts are marching toward the Chaos Marines.
Cut scene to space above Terra. Emperor class ship and Battle barges are shooting are Chaos Ships(no sound).
Cut scene to a battle of epic proportions is raging below the camera. Brother is fighting Brother is a mass of blood and guts.
Cut scene to the emperor fighting on the battle field... suddenly he looks up and whispers.
"Horus... Squad on me"
Cut scene to a teleport room where the Emperor and a group of marines (5-7) and some Primarchs are standing on a glowing circle. FLASH!! They're gone.
Cut to Horus's ship, where the Emperor is fighting his way through the ship to the command deck. Finally the Emperor is standing face to face with Horus... The following battle can be typed by someone else(my hands are tired)
-what do you think?
sounds like the thing was made by a teenager... and by the way, sandbags??
What? did you exspect an adult rated movie?
And a sandbag... it's a big heavy bag filled with sand and the sand is good at stopping or slowing bullets.
You can see why that would be usefull during war... right? <_<
a warhammer movie (especially 40k) would by definition be an adult movie. it would be an R if it were to truly be a warhammer movie. other than that... i think the idea is good. but you need more than just marines, it needs other races. like an epic battle between order and unorder. have the space marine head with all the other order forces versus the hive mind controlled unorder. blood and guts would have to be everywhere for it to be a true warhammer flick, also would have to be really well advirtised (and worked so it is interesting to more than warhammer fans) so it wouldnt be a total waste of money and time...
It's going to have other races... above was just the opening. I think to get across the idea of the Imperium, the movie would mostly be about Chaos vs Imperium. But 'ya know you can throw some Eldar in there, the Imperium and Elder forces could be fighting together againts the Dark Eldar(Eldar who were corrupted by slannesh(sp?)) and Chaos marines.
If you want, throw some Trynaids (sp?) or orks in to the movie... I just don't see how they could fit into the plot, or maybe two movies or even three.
sandbags wont stop the power of a bolter... The mindset of the 41st millenium isnt very common in our age... so it would be a very odd movie. not even the script that you have presented us with portrays the mindset of the space marines. There wouldnt be many people who can relate to any of the characters in the story, so i cant really see the success of that movie.
Why is the word "movie" all red lettered and yellow outline?
Can you relate to Neo or Trinity? <_<
The Matrix movies made tons of money and I can' relate to Neo.
I have thought exactly the same thing about a WH40k film, but the difficulties in making the film would be immense:
-Putting the different races in the plot
-the mass of bloodchurning gore and the massacres would make the film R warning rated for over 80 war veterans only.
-a complex plot involving corruption, etc..
-making Space Marines more 'human' so we can relate to them a LITTLE
-making it true to the game, i.e. 1 Space Marine isnt going to barge through, kill 500 Tyranids and then die from a lack of sugar
now... should the movie be about one person or many plots?
