I dunno, this looks pretty bad. Has that Resident Evil thing going for it and no that's not a compliment.

By the way, Storm's gimmick includes 1.) telling the audience to shut up, and 2.) occasionally making everyone stand for the Canadian national anthem. You know they don't know what to do with a wrestler when he's making fans stand for a national anthem. It's like waving a white flag and saying, "This guy has no personality -- we give up."

Gotta agree. I liked Resident Evil though (Zombies, yeah I'm into them, can't help it) so I'll look at your statement as a compliment to Resident Evil.

What surprised me about the trailer is the non selling of The Rock. From what I saw, there is essentially nobody in this movie. There is no mention of The Rock just a couple clips that amount to hardly any air time(isn't he playing the main character?). I'm predicting this film will tank unless of course all the Doom fans get together and promote the hell out of this. I don't think they are interested either.

Is it just me or does this really look like it has the quality of a B scifi movie of the early 90s. Cheap space station sets, cheap big guns, bad lighting, horrible acting, no plot?

When the hell is spyhunter coming out? I had never even heard of Doom the movie. I looked on id's website and found no mention of the movie, but I did find out they have a Doom3 table top game(good god!).

I really don't see Carmack and Romero as the type of guys to sell the Doom name to such a shitty movie. There were those Doom books, but who actually read those?

Sooner or later the Rock may have to swallow his pride and head back home to Vinnie Mac.

The film keeps being called "The Rock's next movie," which is highly inaccurate. He's a villain in the film and has a small role. It's a little more screentime than he got in The Mummy Returns, but not much...

Doom has been in the works for quite some time. But man, it seems like The Rock has like a 5 year backlog of movies.

According to IMDB, he's in filming for "Gridiron Gang" (looks like a teenage version of "The Longest Yard"), he has a role (unknown how big) in "Instant Karma" (in production), which is listed as "a visual-effects laden comedy about a safecracker who dies and is reincarnated as a series of animals."

There are also 3 movies in preproduction, including "Spy Hunter", "Ride Along" (where he plays a "tough-as-nails cop" who is joined on his police beat by Ryan Reynolds, who plays a cognitive therapist specializing in non-violent communication, who wants to marry his sister), and "Southland Tales", which is listed as a Comedy / Musical / Thriller. I have no idea what that means.

Finally, Johnny Bravo has been announced (been almost a year with no updates though).

EDIT: He's a villian in that? I didn't get that vibe at all from the trailer.

A quick look at The Rock's page at IMDB.com shows the following films on his plate:

1. Instant Karma (in production)
2. Johnny Bravo (announced) .... Johnny Bravo
3. Southland Tales (pre-production) .... Boxer Santaros
4. Spy Hunter (pre-production) .... Alec Sects
5. Ride Along (pre-production)
6. Gridiron Gang (filming) .... Sean Porter

Those, along with Doom and the 6 other movies he's already done, pretty much guarantee The Rock will never -have to- work for Vince again, much less swallow his pride in doing so. Even if Doom horribly tanks in the box office (which it most likely will), Rocky will already have his paycheck, as well as numerous other projects lined up. He will be just fine.

That being said, I still wish he would come back for a RAW or SD here and there. It would be a nice change from just seeing Austin come back once every few months like clockwork.

The Rock plays Sarge, who's the tough as nails squad leader. Karl Urban got the role of John Grimm, who is the main character. Apparently when Rock was looking over the script to read for Grimm, he liked the Sarge character more. Click here (media.filmforce.ign.com) and check out the 14 minute panel discussion from ComiCon for Rock, Urban, and id's Todd Hollinshed's comments on the movie.


Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
I don't know if the Rock plays a villain or not, but it sounds like he plays a good guy, though in an interview he did acknowledge a twist with the character towards the end.

Ah, didn't mean to spoil anything since the Rock has been mentioning it all over the place. (Or maybe it just seems like it's all over the place because I'm in SoCal and keep catching interviews with him. He talked about it at the San diego Comic Con two weeks ago...)

Even if Rock didn't have so many projects lined up, why the hell would one bad movie mean "back to Vinnie Mac"? Arnold never made a good movie. The quality of a movie has virtually nothing to do with whether or not people want to see it.

I actually thought Kindergarten Cop was a good movie, though that doesn't mean Arnold was good in it. Twins was a good movie. Terminator was a good movie. So was Terminator 2. And Total Recall. And The Running Man, with the Body and the almighty Richard Dawson. I've actually never seen Predator, but most people think that's a good movie, too.

And I usually hate dumb action movies. You can't fault Arnold's oeuvre, as lousy a governor as he is!

Arnold never made a good movie? What about Total Recall? Total Recall is extremely underrated, and of course gave us the priceless "Two Weeks!" scene...

Sure, it's no "Memento", but what is? :)

I'm probably the only person in the world who though PERDATOR 2 was a better film. Arnold wasn't in it and it made Danny Glover look like he deserved to be in the LETHAL WEAPON films.
