News about Doom: Annihilation has been rather quiet ever since the first trailer for the film dropped, but today we learned that the straight-to-home video movie is due to arrive on Blu-ray and DVD on October 1st, 2019. Have a look below for the cover artwork, storyline, and where to pre-order this item today.
Doom: Annihilation is an explosive, terrifying thrill ride. 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].
Back in March, you might recall my bombshell article regarding what I thought of the film up to that point. While my opinions have not changed, I think I can confidently speak on behalf of many DOOM fans when I say the film is shaping up to be a huge disappointment and disservice to a great franchise.
Not even id Software, the developer behind the best-selling video game series, is showing much enthusiasm for this project. When a fan asked about their thoughts regarding the first trailer for Doom: Annihilation, the developer simply stated, “We’re not involved with the movie.”
