Millions of devoted fans worldwide have been spellbound by the dark invention of its adventures . . . have awaited its every incarnation with urgent anticipation . . . and have devoted countless hours, days and weeks to conquering its hidden mysteries: Doom.
When the home-computer game "Doom" was first launched in 1993, no one could have foreseen the legion of fans it would create and the mania surrounding its every new permutation. "Doom" and its successive installments have transfixed gamers worldwide for over a decade and have sold millions of copies (while chalking up an unprecedented tens of millions of downloads as shareware). It is, simply, the most explosive home-computer game franchise phenomenon in history.
Now, the game that made history is jumping from computer screens to the motion picture screen: get ready for Doom. Set countless years in the future and told in the hyper- kinetic, kamikaze style that made its gaming predecessor a global phenomenon, the science fiction action adventure Doom takes the viewer to the far corners of the galaxy with a fully-realized vision of a dark and disturbing future.
UPDATE: Universal Pictures has informed us that the studio is not in any way affiliated with a remake of Doom. We'll keep you posted if any further details come in.

If there was one video game that revolutionized all other video games - Doom. It was the early 1990's when Id Software released the original Doom game. Now, after two successful sequels, and a major motion picture, Id brings us Doom 3: Resurrection of Evil exclusively on the Xbox.
I happened to get a copy of the game, as well as a press CD with some screen shots and trailers for both the Doom 3 game and the advanced Resurrection of Evil. Well, let me just tell you I was even freaked out by the video and the images. I don't get scared by video games, but some of the monsters and demons are just so awesome looking! I've never seen technology like this on a video game ever. Really, it's not a video game anymore when you look at the screen - you are part of the game!Read More
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Universal's Doom, an R-rated sci-fi actioner based on the video game, opened in the top spot during a lukewarm weekend at the boxoffice but clearly lacked the firepower for which its namesake is known. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson stars in Doom, which was helmed by Andrzej Bartkowiak and opened with a disappointing estimate of $15.4 million. Not surprisingly, the audience for Doom, whose price tag was conservatively placed in the $60 million-plus area, was largely young, male and familiar with the video game.
DreamWorks' Dreamer: Inspired by a True Story crossed the finish line in the second spot with an estimated $9.3 million in its debut. The drama, starring Kurt Russell and Dakota Fanning, found a large family audience and generated exceptionally strong exit-poll scores as well as mostly favorable reviews. John Gatins wrote and directed the PG-rated film about an injured race horse nursed back to health by a trainer and his daughter.Read More
