First trailer for Doom franchise reboot ‘Doom: Annihilation’

by Phil Wheat

Universal have released the first trailer for its upcoming franchise reboot Doom: Annihilation, which is based upon the iconic Doom video game series (as was the original movie starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson) and comes from Universal’s DTV arm, Universal 1440 Entertainment, who were responsible for bringing us the many, many Scorpion King sequels, the FANTASTIC Death Race DTV prequel franchise and the recently-reviewed Benchwarmers 2.

This time round the cast includes Amy Manson, Luke Allen-Gale, Dominic Mafham and Nina Bergman and the film is directed by one of my favourite filmmakers, Tony Giglio, who previously directed the superb slasher Timber Falls and the “as good as The Raid and Dredd” (at least IMHO) actioner Extraction; and who also penned a couple of the Death Race sequels.

DOOM: ANNIHILATION follows a group of space marines as they respond to a distress call from a base on a Martian moon, only to discover it’s been overrun by demonic creatures who threaten to create Hell on Earth.

Doom: Annihilation will be released in Fall 2019.
