Universal 1440 Entertainment is the production studio, a branch of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. They plan to patch up, grind, tighten and re-open the portal to hell. Doom: Annihilation is the second video adaptation of the legendary gaming franchise. You can look at the "dense action" (this is how the authors describe the product) this fall.
The plot is simple: spacemarines respond to the repeating calls for help from Mars' satellite (we do not know, Phobos or Deimos, the description says that the satellite is modestly designated as "the moon of Mars"). There, as usual, hell and death happens and appears a threat of Underworld coming to Earth. Well, or the Earth's descent to hell — call it as you like.
The script was written by Tony Giglio, starring Amy Mason, Dominic Mafam, Luke Ellen-Gale and Nina Bergman.
And here is the trailer:
And now, the best part. Roasting!
We understand, that nowadays society and communities are... highly inflammable and vulnerable. And demanding. Even if you have a great movie in all cinematic standards, some people may spill dirt on your creation or yet abandon it. Because of not-enough-black Will Smith, 'humongous' protagonists, single-race overuse, hurting minorities, 7 years old innocuous Twitter jokes, and etc. The thing is, once trying to please everyone, you can lose the eccentricity, the authenticity. In no ways we are trying to criticise the creators, producers, or anyone who is responsible for making the Doom: Annihilation movie. We bet they have instructions. We all are just soldiers, you know. But there should never be a Doom-connected film like this. And the DOOM-game developers agree with us.
Doom is about Doomguy. Doom is about chainsaw bloodbath, satanic symbols, lots, we mean, lots of enemies. Doom is about testosterone, drive and aggression. You could spend your time pouring out emotions on imps with an accompaniment of fantastic sound made by Mick Gordon. The first movie was decent. It Rocked. Why not make a film with a GoPro-camera as Ilya Naishuller did with The Weeknd's False Alarm or his director-debuting Hardcore? Or do a The Raid-like one? Give people what Doom is about, not what Doom could have been. Low budgets, you say? The Raid was made with $4,5m, Hardcore — $2,5m. Worried about gender-equality? Reveal the girl inside Doomguy's suit at the end of the movie.
This movie is obviously made for a worldwide audience, disrespecting the fans. Moreover, the producers understand it: Doom: Annihilation comes out directly on discs, video rentals and digital. Folks, let's just wait for Doom: Eternal and buy it.
