(i don't think i can post the image direct as they have some sort of referrer logging system).

Looks to me like a scene from the start of Escape from New York :D

From what I heard Demons won't be anything to do with it.

Face it, this film is going to suck more than the Resident Evil films, Probably more than King Aurther.

Actually, the Res Evil comparison may be quite acurate...

A squad of black suited special forces in a high tech setting with genetic experiments gone wrong.... it basically IS the plot of the resident evil movie.

----------

I have nothing against the Rock, in fact i think he may well be the best thing in this movie... not that that is saying much... :(

But Doom without demons?? what???

The Rock is the new muscle bound action star. He's not a superb actor, but he fits the parts he's cast to play (muscular badasses). It's like the Arnie movies in the 80's and early 90's, Arnold isn't such a great actor but he was cast in quite a lot of movies.

Anyway, I think it'll be alright. But still without the demons it won't be as good. But I think I can understand why they left out the demons, same reason why people complained about the DOOM games. I'll let you all try to remember that.

Really, I would have thought a shotgun would do the trick!:p

Well, i suppose that could be why they took out the demon refs, but there have been many films that left them in.

i have no idea WHY they took out the demons. The idea of hell crossing over into earth (well mars) and the progressively more hellish environments (living skin on walls) was one of the few "unique" things about doom. But hey, why hang on to that... :rolleyes:

But there have been many, many films with demons/hell in (constantine, hellboy, event horizon, almost any horror film, etc..) so i can't see that leaving demons out would have anything to do with christian groups getting upset.

Come to think of it, you didn't have christian groups picketing any films with demons in, only games... typical bias...

True, but those were tending to deal more with supernatural being casting spirits back into hell or what not. Doom you're a human soldier kicking demonic ass with a shotgun. I guess they tend to let the supernatural beings slide. *shrugs* Who knows.

OMG!! I predicted it! I made a photoshop of the rock as the Doom 3 guy a few months ago, I'll try and find it again :D

Edit: I love IMDB.com

I'm surprised you're all just now reacting about the Rock. He's was the first person ever mentioned to be slated in this movie.
Infact before we even learned about the story of the movie, we learned the Rock was going to be in it.

The Rock overacts too much. If he doesn't pull it off right, this movie can be one huge epitome of how game-to-movies suck.

I dont like using the words 'muscular badass' ...too homo-erotic for me, but the rock was pretty funny in "Be Cool" ...Loved that afro :p
