New teaser for forthcoming ‘Doom: Annihilation’

by Phil Wheat

Universal have released a brand new 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.

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.

On the darkest moon of Mars, scientists have found an ancient portal which allows teleportation throughout the universe. Considered to be mankind’s greatest discovery, it’s actually a gateway from hell, unleashing a swarm of demons looking to steal the souls of everyone who gets in their way. It’s up to Lieutenant Joan Dark and an elite unit of Marines to destroy an ever-growing horde of bloodsucking and soul-stealing beasts and prevent them from taking over planet earth.

Doom: Annihilation will be released in the US on October 1st, with a UK release to follow on October 28th.
