Heavenly Sword movie has a release date

Heavens to Betsy!

It might not exactly be the summer blockbuster you've all been waiting for (when is Guardians of the Galaxy out again?) but the Heavenly Sword movie finally has a release date.

The CG animated feature that's coming courtesy of Cinedigm picks up the story of Nariko, star of the early PlayStation 3 game. I can't remember if the game was any good or not, but 2007's Kristan Reed says it was a bit 7/10.

The film itself sees original voice actor behind Nariko, Anna Torv, reprising her role, and she's joined by Alfred Molina, him with the sad eyes that died funny in Species and most recently cameoed in new Best Thing Ever Rick & Morty.

When's it coming out? IGN has revealed the Heavenly Sword movie is launching on September 2 in the US on Blu-ray and PSN - so we can expect it shortly after in the UK.
