Doom: Annihilation

This is a blatant cashgrab with the Doom name attached, and I don't know why people are treating it as anything more. Bethesda said they have nothing to do with it, the movie people made minimal attempt to connect it to the games in even the slightest way, and it has no budget.

I'm just treating it as a bad fan film and moving on.

Same with me. A fan film which didn't even have famous actors like Carl Urban and The Rock.

So I just watched this last night since I noticed it was on netflix now and it was better then expected. Sure, it wasn't great, and I'd hesitate to even call it good, but well my expectations were pretty damn low. I'm certainly amused that the protag is called Joan Dark, since that's pretty blatantly a reference to another FPS protagonist.

I actually want a sequel. Ideally with a much much higher budget. And some cooperation from Bethesda iD so that we can get the Doomslayer to show up, since from what I saw Universal only had the film rights for DOOM 1-3 and not the 2016 DOOM.

Like, we got demons, we got a supershotgun, we got a chainsaw, we got keycards, they even worked in a Doomguy's rabbit reference with the ship AI being called Daisy and the pilot having a rabbit foot. It was pretty clear to me that they had actual fans working on this film that were unable to really bring what we wanted due to budget restraints. And possibly executive meddling to not give us Doomguy. That or a choice to not use Doomguy cause they knew they couldn't deliver a good take on him on such a presumably small budget.

[up]It could probably work if you went the Dredd route. You can bring back Joan if you want, just to see her interact with Doom Slayer the silent badass ripping and tearing through the forces of hell.

Ok, who let Light Yagami in here?

I actually imagined a better version of this film acting as a prequel to the events of DOOM 2016. Whats-her-face the soldier lady and her few surviving squadmates are tasked by Samuel Hayden to cross the Mars complex and awaken the Doomslayer as a last resort. Drama ensues as they aren't told what exactly they're doing and don't trust their superiors or even each other, getting picked off one by one, and the climax has Final Girl soldier lady rip and tear through a bunch of demons and hit the switch to release the Slayer with her dying breath.

Altho I'm still for Tom Hall's Doom Bible movie adaptation (it has plot details and characters laid out already), that ain't bad.

I just don't see it done justice if it'd have similar budget as this one. if it happens lawdy

let the marines wear the armor shown in Doom '16

Necropost but I just found out about this

Rumors have come out stating that Universal is once again working on a DOOM movie, but this one will be a reboot for the franchise. Expect this film to see a theatrical release, and it will focus on the events of the original DOOM game from 1993. Also, while not locked in yet, Universal is interested in landing John Cena for the lead.

It's just a rumor can never know. Demons can't kill what they can't see! I feel John Cena would be better for the role of B.J. Blazkowicz than Doomguy anyway

John Cena is... Guy Dumin.

So yet another Cena vs Rock contest.

Cena was also at one point rumored to play Duke Nukem (that movie seems to be in Development Hell), now Doomguy, while everyone just wants him to be BJ.
