Doom: Annihilation has received its first trailer and, well, it definitely looks like a direct-to-DVD movie.
Written and directed by Tony Giglio, the mind behind Death Race 2 and 3, Doom: Annihilation aims to be a complete reboot of the DOOM cinematic world. Sorry, Karl Urban, your cool FPS scene is now non-canon.
However, much like the previous DOOM movie, Annihilation doesn’t seem to take all that much from the game series. No more Cacodemons, no more Revenants, we just get generic zombies. Sorry, I mean, “demons”.
DOOM: Annihilation sees a group of space marines responding to a distress call on Phobos. Once they arrive, they discover that the UAC base has been overrun by demons who threaten to create Hell on Earth.
As a fan of the DOOM games, Annihilation isn’t exactly what I wanted, but it’s what we’re getting. At least we’re also getting Doom Eternal!
