Based on a Playstation best-seller, the Heavenly Sword movie makes its way to Blu-ray and DVD on September 2nd. This animated film hosts an all-star voice cast including Anna Torv, Alfred Molina and Thomas Jane.
Heavenly Sword was an excellent game and I'm excited to see a movie adaptation of it, albeit an animated one. That might be for the best though. I'm not very keen on some of the live-action versions of some of our favorite pop culture (and that includes gaming) franchises.

SYNOPSIS [From the Press Release]
Nariko's clan has long protected the "Heavenly Sword," a god's blade of immense power that drains its wielder of their life force. A power-hungry ruler known as the evil King Bohan seeks to obtain the sword to gain its devastating power. As the impending apocalypse nears, it remains to be seen how long Nariko can resist the sword's deadly curse.
This is awesome! I'm a huge fan of Heavenly Sword. ^_^
