For some reason, they’re making another DOOM movie, and today, we received our first trailer for the direct-to-video action flick.
If you weren’t phased by the Dwayne Johnson & Rosamund Pike-led chaos fire from 2005, Annihilation looks right up your street.
It’s not a sequel, it’s a reboot, clearly taking into account the demand for more DOOM after the raucous success of id Software’s 2016 offering.
Set on Mars with practical aliens and ridiculous laser quest plastic guns, Annihilation doesn’t stray far from the basic plotline of the games. Space marines respond to a distress call and are overwhelmed by terrible demons from Hell.
You’d think they could try and inject some flair or put a cinematic spin on it after the diabolical first DOOM movie, but hey, I’m not the one in charge here!
In any event, the trailer is absolutely hog wild and well worth a watch if you need a quick giggle. At one point, protagonist Amy Manson looks particularly badass carving into a space demon with a chainsaw.
If you’re looking for a schlocky b-movie that shares some debatable DNA with one of the most adrenaline-pumping video game series of all time. keep your eye out for Doom: Annihilation, which is dropping later this year.
