Ok, so it seems it will be a CG, DVD-only release, but who cares?
A Warhammer 40,000 Movie | Ultramarines The Movie
Sorry, gotta go clean up the drool.

Lemt makes a good point.....
Space Marines- The ultimate representation of 'Bros before Hoes'
Yeah, I could do with some sarcasm actually... A 40K movie sounds too good to be true and sadly, most likely, will NOT be made in the excellence it deserves.
Sadly, for some twisted sense of realism or other I get the feeling that any 40K movie will get picked up by a movie director like Michael bay or Uwe Boll, instead of a director that can put both a gritty and compromise-less story together with jaw-dropping but functional rather than exhibitionist CGI extravaganza. (Star Wars Episode 3 vs Pitch Black or Event Horizon for instance)
I honestly think they may be best served by making a smashy, rarrrgh kind of movie without a whole ton of plot. The movie is going to be short, and hopefully it will be quality enough not to take away from the fun!
...I would actually REALLY like to see this, I don't care how bad it is, but I'd really like to see some of these characters in movie-form (ie Orks... I hope they can get some humor into them). E
EDIT: Coz of my epic slow internet, I got to see "Ultramarines" load very slowly downwards... and found out that when its half way down, it says... W TRAM A DINES.... Tram? Coincedence!?!? Well probably but still....
God my lifes boring... lmao

But my main fear is that somehow they'll manage to have some cutesy baby ork be rescued by some remorseful marines... (arch, will they even read the background of 40k?!) or even introduce a youngster as an anchor point for the viewers or worse, some off-the-shelf high-voiced black actor acting as a comic relief... owww the horror, the painnnnn...
All bolters + no story = me not enjoying film. Obviously there would have to be a lot of action, it focusing on Space Marines, but the 40k universe is deep, and so should any film based on it be.
On the other hand, for this reason:
I'm glad Hollywood has nothing to do with it.
I'd rather see a film about the Inquisition, maybe with a few Marines providing an impressive climactic ultra-killy finale.
