We had been fairly sceptical about the trailer for Doom: Annihilation, the straight-to-video Doom film popping out on October 1. Now we have seen 18 seconds extra of it due to the teaser above and, whereas it nonetheless does not seem to be something to write down residence about, it might be worse? Perhaps that is simply lowered expectations however the truth that they’re being up-front about this being a film the place a ton of demons come out of a portal to hell on Mars looks like a great begin.
There’s a bit of little bit of parkour and a few OK demons. It appears to be like low-budget as heck however in fact it does and, I imply, what’s the point in having high expectations for videogame movies? That is only a approach of setting your self up for a letdown.
This is what the official plot synopsis says: “Primarily based on the favored authentic online game, Doom: Annihilation is an explosive, terrifying thrill journey. On the darkest moon of Mars, scientists have discovered an historic portal which permits teleportation all through the universe. Thought-about to be mankind’s biggest discovery, it is truly a gateway from hell, unleashing a swarm of demons trying to steal the souls of everybody who will get of their approach. It is as much as Lieutenant Joan Darkish and an elite unit of Marines to destroy an ever-growing horde of bloodsucking and soul-stealing beasts and forestall them from taking up planet earth.”
Look, I’ll drink 4 or 5 beers and watch this film. That is all I am saying.
