    Another DOOM movie being made?

    More off-screen antics, where we get to see yet another weapon and some more of that “experimentation chair.” Based on what we’ve seen, at least the marines actually seem to have more than one weapon type (about 80% of the RRTS had an assault rifle in the 2005 movie). Also, we get to have a closer look at one of those computer terminals. It appears to be something you’d expect to find in Doom 2016, just with the classic Doom aesthetic.
  2. Passed away from cancer. RIP. May his framerate always be above 30 FPS and his FOV always be above 90.

    So we’ve got what appears to be the inside of a dropship or vehicle of some sort. Interesting to see that it seems to be either Mars or Hell outside the exterior. That’s my other big issue with the 2005 movie; it was that it was completely convinced you’re watching a good movie when it really wouldn’t pass muster for an A-movie script. Everyone took the bad film seriously, except maybe for The Rock. This is the most likely outcome for the film’s distribution. It’d make the most sense to reach out to as wide an audience as possible if you’re embarking on a serious project with a serious budget and serious effort. Seriously, now you have once-struggling films find good homes on Netflix (and streaming services appears to be an increasingly diverse set of markets).

    So Nina gives us a little tour of the base (it looks like an excavation site of sorts, as there’s dirt on the ground). It’s still that same site where a sizable chunk of the action is likely to take place, since it looks pretty massive, has a very angular look, and is mostly covered in shadows and ominous lighting. I have a theory as to why we have a female lead this time around: So these marines are in fact looking for an ancient warrior that is the only one suited to kill all of the demons, and it’s none other than our favorite demon slayer. In other words, the identity of the Doom Marine is literally being kept a secret.

    So doing some research on Autonomous FX, which is doing the creature designs and effects on this movie. From what I’ve seen, their main line of work is in prosthetics and animatronics. Looks like we may be getting practical effects again.

    Just now, I got another BTS pic: We can pretty much kiss the Doom 3 aesthetic goodbye, my dudes. This really does scream classic Doom, sans the costumes. Speaking of which, perhaps I should be the costume designer due to my Doomguy cosplay? :P

    So searching on Instagram instead of Twitter, I found these couple of nuggets: So this may or may not be in the movie, but I thought it was really interesting to share. If they don’t use this formation as some sort of effect (maybe this being the eyes of a sleeping demon lord), then that’s gonna be a hell of a wasted opportunity. That cave formation just screams Doom. Another day of shooting, but what’s really interesting is the caption. Perhaps the movie is really a quest to find Reaper or the Doomslayer/Doomguy? The background looks very Doom-like. Perhaps a look at the movie’s (human) antagonist? A shot of what appears to be a cave formation, as well as that same chair Amy was seen sitting in. As @GoatLord mentioned, this is evoking even more of a classic Doom vibe.

    More pictures of the set, which appears to look closer to share more of that very angular and analog look that OG Doom has. The 2005 movie on the other hand was basically just a base covered in silver and chrome. Also, we’ve got a peek at some of the weapons being shown. They look almost nothing at all like the weapons in the 2005 movie, this time looking far sleeker and more futuristic this time around. Also, I’ve come to notice that the actors shown so far are playing only space marines (no scientists, maintenance workers, etc.). I know that we still have a ways to go before anything tangible is shown, but I thought that was interesting to notice.
  9. This is extremely well-done. I could easily see this turn turn into a stand-alone film, because the writing on display here is just that excellent.

    How Doom 3 fits into canon

    It was John Carmack himself who said that Doom 3 is in fact a remake of the original Doom. So yeah, D3 is its own canon (or at least its own timeline)

    oh god here come all of the true fans to declare BETRAYAL Spoony-style if it turns out she’s the Doomguy (Doomgirl) Context: I saw a thread on r/Doom about the new Doom movie, and it’s basically a bunch of fuckbaskets circle-jerking about how the new Doom movie is going to fail because it’s going to pander to the “esjaydubbaewes” like Ghostbusters 2016 before it, and how Deum is a manly man’s game that can only be enjoyed by only the manliest of men. TL;DR, the girl cooties would just get in the way of ripping and tearing demons. AND THAT IS ALL WE ARE GOING TO SAY ON THE MATTER, NO MORE TANGENTS ABOUT THE PROTAGONIST’S GENDER. Anyway, back on topic. The color choices in that image are actually quite interesting. In fact, they seem to be evoking classic Doom vibes more than what we got from the 2005 movie. In fact, those color choices and the overall aesthetic actually seem to be drawing more from classic Doom than they do Doom 2016. The thing is, Doom 2016 has a very sleek and modern look while paying homage to the original, whereas the original had a very analog feel to it (similar to the Blade Runner movies). This movie seems to be drawing more from the latter’s aesthetic. In fact, I see that the “Phobos Compound” from that explosive barrel makes a return, showing in combination with the aforementioned aesthetic, that this movie could be far closer to the source material than expected. And if it does turn out that we’re getting a Doomgirl, then I’m completely fine with that. Considering what DreadCentral also scooped up, they’ve mentioned that FX company doing “demon designs.” If that’s the case, then we could in fact be getting proper demons from Hell.

    DOOM sequel at E3?

    To be honest, it’s kind of interesting to see how RAGE 2 has been getting a ton of buzz, whereas the Doom sequel is pretty much under wraps for the time being. I did see that Doom 2016 was given a proper teaser a couple of weeks (or months) before E3 2015.

    A sneak preview of the set (possibly a UAC base) and the full body armor. Based on what @Quasar mentioned, the armor does look a lot like Z-Sec armor. EDIT: While I may be grasping at straws at this point, I couldn’t help but notice that Nina dyed her hair a certain shade of teal. Namely, that shade of teal appears almost exactly like on the armor of a certain female space marine we’re all familiar with...

    Now that you mention it, it’s there! Not only that, Nina appears to have a Doom 3-styled UAC patch on her jacket (her left arm). Anyway, that DreadCentral link got updated with new info: http://www.dreadcentral.com/news/272155/theres-new-information-about-universals-doom-reboot/ So even though we still have no confirmation of Amy Manson as the lead yet (not yet on Twitter anyway), we do have word on the special effects company that’ll be doing “special effects, makeup, and demon effects.” Yes, you read that right. Not “monster effects,” not “creature effects,” DEMON EFFECTS. This last piece of info should be taken with a grain of salt, as it could be the site just hyping the movie. Still interesting to note, however.

    So more previews of what the marines will look like. I may have stated this before, but I feel this should go without saying: The armor that the marines wear in this movie appear to be radically different from what what the RRTS squad wore in the 2005 movie. The soldiers in the latter were mainly wearing jumpsuits over these pieces of body armor that could easily be worn by riot guards or soldiers in present day. The armor worn by the marines here appear to be far more fitting to what a futuristic soldier would be wearing, even if it’s not exactly the Praetor suit or power armor. There’s proper jackets, elbow/knee padding, and the body armor itself looks far sleeker. Keep in mind that currently, we still don’t have the faintest idea of the movie’s synopsis. Given what we’ve seen so far, it’s likely (but not certain) that this may not even be a sequel to the 2005 movie.
