First Trailer for DOOM: ANNIHILATION Drops
The first trailer for this upcoming straight-to-home-video release has arrived.

Earlier today, the first trailer for DOOM: ANNIHILATION was revealed and you can now catch your first glimpse of what to expect with the upcoming film. The movie is the latest attempt by Universal to reboot the series on film, which we last saw on the big screen in 2005 with the Karl Urban (Star Trek) and Dwayne Johnson (The Fast and Furious series) led film.
The trailer doesn’t reveal too much, but you can get a good look at the UAC space marines and what we assume to be the Imps, which are humanoid creatures featured in the video game series the film is based off of. Overall, the trailer was disappointing and doesn’t seem to bring anything new to the table. It somehow seems to be looking worse than the first DOOM film and the creature designs look inspired by Paul W.S. Anderson’s atrocious Resident Evil films.
In any case, DOOM: ANNIHILATION is written and directed by Tony Giglio, who is known for the films Chaos and In Enemy Hands. The film will be executive produced by Lorenzo Di Bonaventura (Bumblebee) and John Wells (Animal Kingdom), and is produced by Jeffery Beach (Jarhead 3: The Siege), Phillip Roth (Death Race: Beyond Anarchy), and Ogden Gavanski (Cult of Chucky).
The cast of the film includes Amy Manson (Atlantis, T2 Trainspotting), Dominic Mafham (Ophelia), Luke Allen-Gale (Dominion, Captain America: The First Avenger), and Nina Bergman (The Car: Road to Revenge, Assassin X).
Universal’s DOOM: ANNIHILATION is slated for a straight-to-home video release sometime this fall, which we’ll keep you posted about when the exact date is revealed. Stay tuned to Dead Entertainment for all the latest news on this film and everything DOOM!
