The original 'Doom' movie that came out in 2005 failed to put up a good show. Both 'Doom' fans and the critics hated it despite having a good cast like Karl Urban, Rosamund Pike, The Rock, and more. Since the original movie turned out to be a hot mess, we're now being hit with a new one called 'Doom: Annihilation', which is slated to arrive this fall.
'Doom: Annihilation', as we know it, is a direct-to-video adaptation of the Doom video game franchise. It's being produced by Universal 1440 Entertainment, a division of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Well, the first trailer of the movie just hit the internet yesterday, and it looks like the original developers of the game aren't really impressed. Here's the trailer if you haven't watched it yet -

Well, let's just hope that the movie will be much more intriguing and action-packed than the trailer itself. 'Doom: Annihilation' is written and directed by Tony Giglio, and it stars Amy Manson, Dominic Mafham, Luke Allen-Gale and Nina Bergman.
