After the not so great Doom live-action movie starring The Rock, many fans are a bit apprehensive about the next adaptation of the Doom game, called Doom: Annihilation. The film’s first trailer sets out to try and prove that it can do better than the first.
To be honest, I have to admit that this movie caught me off guard. I wasn’t expecting a new movie based on the first-person shooter game. However, judging by the Doom: Annihilation trailer, it seems that this time around the film tries to stay more true to the source material.
The film will follow a group of marines who, after responding to a distress call from a base on a Martian moon, end up having to face off against the forces of Hell.
The upcoming film is being directed by Tony Giglio and stars Amy Manson, Dominic Mafham, Nina Bergman and Luke Allen-Gale.
Doom: Annihilation will most likely be heading directly to DVD and I have to say that it does look like it could make for some mindless fun.
What do you make of the Doom: Annihilation movie? Do you think it’s the right time for another go at a Doom-inspired film? Or does the absence of The Rock concern you?
