Another video! Anna talks about the role and Heavenly Sword will be up for sale next week, September 2nd.

It’s been nearly seven years since the world last saw Heavenly Sword. Next Tuesday that changes with the release of a video game to film adaptation.

We have an exclusive behind the scenes trailer for Heavenly Sword featuring Fringe star Anna Torv, who is the voice actress for protagonist Nariko. In this never before seen video, Torv and two other members of the team explain who Nariko is, and what makes her a deeply interesting character. There’s also footage from the movie shown, including a fierce battle between Nariko and the forces of King Bohan. You can see the trailer above.

Heavenly Sword closely follows the narrative of 2007?s PlayStation 3 exclusive, a game that was considered one of the system’s best games at the time, selling over one million copies in eight months. Similar to the game, Nariko becomes responsible for delivering a long-guarded magical sword to its rightful owner. Along the way she must equip the legendary weapon to slay the foes that oppose her, leading to spectacular battles.

This film resembles that of the game, as it’s been a goal since the first day of production to retain the authentic look and feel of Heavenly Sword. However, it will star three new voice actors which include the previously mentioned Anna Torv (Fringe), as well as Alfred Molina (Spider-man 2) and Thomas Jane (The Mist), all three of which have extensive experience in the film industry.

Heavenly Sword will release in both physical and digital format on September 2nd, offered by retailers including Amazon and Walmart.


Heavenly Sword’s Anna Torv Talks Movie Role

A brand new video of Anna? YES! Via Cinema Blend Anna talks about Heavenly Sword:

When Heavenly Sword originally launched for the PlayStation 3, critics and fans alike praised the game for its amazing motion capture and voice work, particularly that of the main heroine, Nariko. With Fringe star Anna Torv breathing life into the role, it’s little wonder that the actress was brought back in to play the fiery warrior yet again, this time for the Heavenly Sword animated feature.

About a year into the PS3’s cycle, Heavenly Sword screamed onto the scene as one of the new generation’s earliest over-the-top action romps, featuring a legendary hero with fiery hair and a blade that has the ability to change history. While a proper sequel to Heavenly Sword never surfaced, Nariko continued to live on as a combatant in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale and, now, through an animated feature film. The developers at Ninja Theory have a game called Hellblade coming out but, despite the name and a new heroine that looks a lot like Nariko’s sidekick, Kai, the studio promises that the two games are unrelated.

Last year, it was announced that work was underway for a Heavenly Sword movie and that much of the original cast was being sought to help tell the game’s tale a second time. Anna Torv was eager to become Nariko once more, as she reveals in her recent behind-the-scenes interview courtesy of Cinedigm. You can check out the footage in the exclusive video above, featuring interviews with the filmmakers and more. Torv discusses the difficulties of getting into a character via motion capture, as well as how acting for video games differs from acting for film.

For those of you who are looking forward to checking out the movie, you won’t actually have to wait much longer, as Heavenly Sword releases on DVD and Blu-ray this coming Tuesday, Sept. 2. You’ll be able to snag it for 15 bucks in the former format or $19.97 for the latter. Weighing in at 85 minutes in length, you’ll be able to follow the quest for the titular weapon in a brand new way, promising lots of action and Nariko kicking the crud out of pretty much anyone silly enough to get in her way. For a better look at what you can expect, don’t forget to take a gander at the movie trailer below. And, for more details, be sure to check out the movie’s official website.

Back in 2007, Anna made a terribly short cameo as an ITU Nurse in ITV’s movie version of Frankenstein. DVD caps can now be found in our gallery.

  • Frankenstein (TV Movie) > DVD Screencaptures

  • Synopsis:

    Victoria Frankenstein is conducting ground breaking, but highly controversial work in the field of stem cell research and medical biotechnology. She is obsessed with her research, The Universal Xenograft Project (UX), generating a multi-organ bank to create organs which are fit for human transplant. Her obsession is not driven by a desire for fame or adulation, but to save her dying son William.

    Maddened by grief and desperation Victoria steals a sample of William’s blood and introduces it to her research programme. Deep inside her lab, in the confines of a purpose built tank, the cells grow at an extraordinarily accelerated rate. As they diversify, mutate and re-form, a horrified Victoria realises that she has lost control of the experiment; the UX is alive – what has she created?

    Starring multi-award winning actress Helen McCrory, James Purefoy and Lindsay Duncan.
