The New ‘Doom’ Movie is Getting Annihilated on YouTube

Please follow and like us:

The trailer for Universal 1440’s Doom: Annihilation was revealed on YouTube today, and was met with instant scorn.

Within just a few hours of posting, the trailer accumulated roughly 8,000 dislikes, and only 600 likes, giving an unintended irony to its tagline: “We call it hell.”

The straight-to-video adaptation of Doom describes itself as carrying “shades of James Cameron’s Aliens,” one of the most iconic sci-fi films of all time.

Rather than the Doom Slayer, Doom: Annihilation features Joan Dark, the brunette seen in the trailer shouting, “die, die, die!” and slinging a grown man against a wall like a helpless kitten.

Strangely enough, if you listen closely at the 14-second mark, you can hear what can only be described as a Predator’s clicking.

Be sure to head on over to the trailer’s YouTube page and contribute your opinion. And please do copy/paste any comments you leave there under this article.

    Why did they even wasted time and money making a movie that looks worse than a fan film?

      The set pieces look nice, the camera quality looks acceptable & the CGI doesn’t look bad either.

      It’s just everything else that seem so very very jarringly bad.

  2. I didn’t leave a comment, but I’ll paste the best one I saw:

    A link to the YouTube page would be handy…

  4. Wow, that looks awful.

  5. Ah, the stronk whamen narrative again. Well, this will be garbage.

    Extremely generic and doesn’t tie into DOOM at all other than the title. The guns look like plastic props and the “DIE DIE DIE” line had a joke of a delivery. Horrendous.

    • It feels like the Cloverfield Paradox, where they had some film, and had no idea how to market it and went “Let’s slap Doom on the title, pretend that was the intention all along, and make bank.”

    No Doomslayer and someone sounding really bored saying Die Die Die, is this a sequel to The Room?

  10. We truely are living in hell.

  11. Could they possibly have picked someone more unconvincing for the role? I mean the protagonist is so puny you’d be forgiven for thinking Mr. Pen from Gotham had a sex change.

    How tough is it really to make a story about a man to angry to die?

    It isn’t tough. I bet it isn’t even that hard to find someone to do the job of playing Doomguy. The guy who plays Punisher in the recent netflix series seems angry enough to fit the bill. You could even have the dude who plays The Hound in game of thrones, if you want.

    So the acting is the problem. The overall production isn’t a problem (similar movies have already been made, from Dredd to Payback, depending on your taste)…

    So what is it? Well, that last bit about “Joan” being the main character is a clue. Someone somewhere thinks that “angry men” is a bad thing, so they went with a (potentially) “angry woman” instead.

    And seems they have screwed up the entire dynamic just by gender swapping the hero in Doom. All because of squeamishness about depicting an angry guy on screen.

  13. Again if your site is going to differentiate itself to others, I would recommend staying away from inflammatory articles like this, leave that to IGN, just talk about the games leave the movies to the theaters.

      +1, like, or whatever

      Info that there’s a new DooM movie, and here’s the trailer is useful. Maybe mention in the article body that it’s not well received.

      • Agreed, wasn’t the site made so we could avoid having political crap bloat our gaming news? I’d count an article about a game-related movie as perfectly fine, but we don’t need to fuel any flames. Let us, the consumers, make up our own mind.

    • What was political about this article?

      You cucks are hilariously pathetic.

    • Matt Calderaz on March 14, 2019 at 8:24 pm said

      I disagree. Game-related content is fine. I would *love* to have a site with all game-related news and opinion in one place, there’s nothing wrong with covering similar scopes of content as the ‘sites we love to hate’, just without the ultra-left politics. Keep it middle-of-the-road, and I’m fine with any content here.

    It’s like they said: “Hey, remember that shitty Doom movie with the Rock? Let’s do that again. But this time, instead of the Rock, let’s use a woman (who isn’t Rhonda Rousey tier muscled).”

  15. I liked it, I never mix production’s lore in my mind. Either it is a spin-off or an alternate universe. What I don’t like is the production’s level. Kinda weird. Direct-to-video doesn’t justify this unless it is stated it is an exploitation movie like those back in the time. I don’t mind protagonist being a woman if it is well introduced. Thing is, all these feminist movement made people distrust entertainment’s proposals or new takes. As far as I’ve seen in the trailer, protagonists was on spot just like Lt. Ripley in Alien.

  16. It’s a B-movie, on that level any scandal is a welcome one. Who really cares. As a fan of DOOM, I’m glad this movie is being made. Yeah, it’s rubbish, so what? The last one wasn’t too good either, and that was a supposed AAA-movie!

    • earthmanbrick on March 13, 2019 at 10:08 pm said

      Yeah, bad movies can still be entertaining.

      I think the trailer makes it look like a recycled cliche of predictable genres with a ”progressive” pile of cringe as oppossed to some early James Gunn B-movie that will charm the audience with dark comedy, goofy but real/relatable conversations & the obvious appeal that the film knows not to take itself too seriously. (Watch Tromeo & Juliet or Super for prime examples)

      I don’t think the movie will be known for its direction of well crafted dialagues or plot.

  17. Kinetic_Powers on March 13, 2019 at 12:47 am said

    Really odd to make this movie. Honestly it would probably do better in some sort of 6 part digital animated series or something.

  18. What… the… fuck…

    Well… After Bethesda’s(?) crack at Doom and nailing the bloodthirsty, brutal and down right sinister nature of Doom Guy and his unrelenting stubbornness to die (and when he does its in spectacularly bloody fashion, of course) this film just appears to be a piss take, is it a joke? A parody? If so, I guess ha-ha… If this is real, then on top of not being able to contain my irritation at having just done a flippant poo-poo move and shrugged off a silent protagonist of pure carnal rage, and replaced him with a small, fragile looking woman who cries “die, die, die!” … Like it’s gonna give her strength to solo a demonic horde… Nah, it also appears it’s a blatantly deliberate move to appease SJW’s. Guess what you don’t see on the front lines? An SJW. Who do you not send to go kick a demon horde? A five foot f*ck all woman screaming because biology says nu-uh. No physical stature, no rage inducing testosterone, no… Never mind. F*ck this film’s advert and it’s inclinations. F*ck the politics around it. Big guy, big anger issues, big guns, big baddies – win.

  20. You exaggerate in your article. She doesn’t come close to “throwing the guy against the wall like a helpless kitten”. She merely pushes him and pins him. That’s a very simple maneuver, one that I’ve seen many times in my martial arts training, and yes, ladies literally half my height successfully applied the technique to me.

    It’s not at all a difficult thing for a trained Marine to do.

    This is the kind of hyperbole that I expect from certain other sites, and my desire to avoid politics and SJW nonsense is why I visited this site in the first place. You can not make hyperbolic jabs like this while claiming to be above this behavior. By engaging in this behavior you are only giving the SJWs fuel for their fire.

    With that said, the video looks pretty bad. Based on that trailer I would watch it for free on a rainy day, but that’s it.

    ..and that’s definitely a Predator clicking in the trailer.

    • Also a Marine here. I wouldn’t know if a woman Marine could do that or not because I wasn’t a POG. Quit acting like you are some kind of Kung-Fu master on internet comments. Marine Corps Marital Arts is a joke. This movie looks stupid and that scene just makes it look even more ridiculous. Shes built like a frail twig that couldn’t pick up a gallon of milk and it is unrealistic for her to be pushing anyone around. Why would you care what an SJW thinks anyways? They don’t ever need “fuel”, they just create it out of thin air.

    The trailer does look awful but then so too did the trailer for Transformers the Movie & for the series, Titans but both turned out pretty impressive.

    Doom Annihilation looks like a Uwe Boll movie. Who knows, it may be so bad it’s great & becomes a meme-making master-piece like The Room or The Star Wars Prequels.

    I don’t have high hopes but am happy to give it the benefit of the doubt

  22. “It’s not a game anymore.”

    – The death knell of any movie based on a game.
