BFG to Blow Up ANOTHER Rumored Doom Reboot, PLEASE

Doom: Annihilation ⭐️

On Netflix streaming as of this posting, and good luck getting through it, unscathed. That’s not a recommendation. Despite loving the original VIDEOGAME and being just so-so on the original movie, I found this reboot completely uninspired and unnecessary.

But it gets worse.

From the dumbest idea for a reboot rumor department, comes another possible Doom reboot. Yes, we need another ID Software Doom movie — a reboot, nonetheless — about as bad as a 12-gauge shot to the face.

How can there be another reboot talk a year later?!?!

Personally, we’re a little skeptical about another Doom adaptation – after all, the games have often prided themselves on prioritizing gameplay over story – but we hope Universal will find a balance that’ll appeal to general moviegoers and longtime fans alike. And if they do indeed manage to snag Cena to star, that’d certainly be a big step in the right direction.

Doom Reboot Reportedly In The Works, Fast & Furious Star Eyed To Lead

With John Cena in the lead? Sure, why not. Do we need another Sarge? The Rock has been there and done that. Guess it’s Cena’s turn. Vin Diesel turned down starring in the original one.

I get that studios (some/most/all?) are desperate with their IP, but the world doesn’t need another Doom movie. Especially another reboot. The first Doom picture was a bust and lost money and I don’t know the finances on Annihilation, but guessing that’s not been a huge moneymaker. Who thinks another reboot will do something the other two movies haven’t done?

When stupid project ideas are floated my go-to response is: can’t we just pick any other bestselling book and make a movie from that instead of another cash grip reboot? Moviegoers are smarter than this. Seriously, we are.

Now, before anybody jumps on me for bashing a movie I haven’t seen (it’s not even a movie yet, though, it’s a rumor of another reboot). We don’t need to see this, that’s the point. This project should be dead on arrival. Whomever is thinking about it at Universal needs to get the memo that Doom is not a viable movie reboot property any time soon.

In some weird, surreal way it’s like we’re inside the game, geared up, and from out behind a maze comes a reboot sequel, tentacles, teeth, ready to rip moviegoers to shreds.

We’re all doomed.

  1. I have no connection to the Doom games whatsoever, so I’m not really sure what to think. I do, however, suggest a far better adaptation of a video game that is streaming on Netflix, Castlevania. I’m also excited to see what Masters of the Universe: Revelation turns up to be: perhaps I’ll do some sort of He-Man marathon on my blog with the new series when it releases on Netflix.

    1. Videogame movies just don’t seem to work very well in general. Bummer on Castlevania. Free Guy is coming up later this year starring Ryan Reynolds and that might be OK. He is also in talks for an adaptation of the laserdisc game Dragon’s Lair. Dirk and Daphne on the silver screen someday, yay!

      1. On yeah, Dragon’s Lair! Now that ones a classic. Although I kinda wished it sticked with being an animated series (you know, the element that originally made it stand out originally!) and followed the footsteps of Castlevania and the upcoming Masters of the Universe show, a live action one could work. Maybe…
