indeed a new doom movie is plan to be released this year

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0419706/

The star of the show will be "The Rock"

intresting choice as lead role.

Also another dissapointing part for me is simply that the monsters will have NOTHING to do with hell like in previous doom games.

So all in all Lets just pray that Doom doesnt flop...

pleaseeeeee

Now allow me to close with "possible" sreencaps for Doom

The last pictures i saw of the movie TOTALLY reminded me of the first Resident Evil. The way you had those swats dressed in all black fighting, ya know, zombies.

It'll be cool if they have some of the classic doom monsters...and pull them off right. Not to mention the famous doom-guy suit.

Yes! Finally, a movie based on one of the great classics of the FPS genre. Surely this will be a cinematic masterpiece worthy of many awards. I cannot wait until the release of this flawless film! Nothing can possibly mess it up.

Well, I spoke too soon.

From what I hear, it's just going to be a pale imitation of "Aliens". Team of marines fights aliens.

Yes, aliens. Remember how in Doom and Doom 2, the enemies were demons? Yeah..no, they're just going with aliens now.

At least they aren't trying to adapt..the books...into a movie...oh my GOD those became increasingly bad. They're out of print, so I'll spoil them. Basically the demons aren't demons, they're aliens wearing...I don't know..demon suits or something. They're being opposed by another race of aliens, who look like gorillas or something and speak oddly while also being unable to grasp the concept of an individual (they can still heal lethal wounds with a glowing sphere, and fly through space though. But they're thrown off if someone speaks in the first person.)

Oh did I mention why the non-demons and collectivist apes are pissed off at each other? They apparently have a differing interpretation of some ancient book. Yes, this is why the demons attack earth. Because they're irritated somebody isn't following their interpretation of...you know they never even completely EXPLAIN what the hell said interpretation is, or why it means Earth becomes some kind of staging point for an assault...It's just implied it's some holy tome, one of the characters has a sudden epiphany (which happens WAY too often. One of them will just start beaming and yell "HAY GUYS, I FIGURED OUT THIS ASPECT OF THE ALIENS!" then make a trite analogy.)

Well..maybe the fourth book does, I haven't bothered to read it really.

Point is, the problem with this movie won't be the Rock. The problem will be they're trying to make doom into a movie, and also apparently remove a number of the aspects that were core to the little but functional "plot" it had.

As long as the movie doesn't take itself seriously, and has tons of action and shooting.

I'm all for it.

And hey, I loved Aliens.

*UPDATE*
im quite sorry friends...
the star of the show will NOT be the rock although he plays a vitl role.
The lead role goes to
Karl Urban
from more speculation seems that the monsters arent from hell, and they ARENT aliens, there mutant people who got a bad taste of some insane virus.

Well, at least we know it'll have an original story.

Good movie or bad, stuff like this is why it's destined to make $$$.
