One of the first games to ever hit the PS3 was ‘Heavenly Sword,’ and fans of the title can now look forward to the new movie coming to Blu-ray, DVD and Digital stores on September 2 from Cinedigm. The film itself is based on Sony PlayStation’s popular video game of the same name, and the CG animation is paired with an all-star voice cast including Anna Torv (“Fringe”), Alfred Molina (Spider-man 2, Chocolate) and Thomas Jane (“Hung,” The Mist).
A dramatic tale of revenge, Heavenly Sword centers on Nariko (Torv), a trained warrior with flaring red hair, who gracefully possesses a titular, heavily sought after blade with incredible powers. As the sword’s guardian, she must face a megalomaniacal ruler King Bohan (Molina) and his unyielding army, who are determined to obtain the powerful sword for their own manipulation.
The story follows Nariko’s clan, who 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.
