Fans of the Doom gaming franchise may be feeling a bit better today as the first in-movie footage, shown at the Comic-Con convention in San Diego, suggests that its creators have listened to fans. The biggest news regarding the Doom movie effort had to do with aspects of the story and how the original game story is being incorporated into the movie script.

The cast and production team members of the movie formed a panel at Comic-Con in an attempt to put gamers at ease with the movie and to repair relations with the gaming community which had severely deteriorated in the past few months.

The first news which should make Doom fans feel better is that Mars is now on and most of the movie will take place on the red planet. Doom the movie will also not be rated PG-13 but R with the Rock himself claiming that the movie is: ...unapologetic as hell, faithful and gory. We are not sure if the mention of hell in the quote is meant to be a clue that the ultimate evil lair will be included in the movie.

The Doom team also confirmed that the movie will also include the most creatures of evil from the game including Hellknight, The Baron, Imps and Pinky Demons. According to Dave Callaham, the movie plot will follow the games closely but no details were divulged except for a short statement that it involves a ...team on Mars chasing real evil, bad things. Some confusion was caused when the movie team claimed that in the movie we will see how the monsters are created.

To further demonstrate how important the games have been to the movie creation process, the crew involved claimed that iD had been and is still, involved in the project since day one. A variety of corridors and labs are almost recreations of their in-game counterparts while extra attention to detail has been paid with the in-movie computer screens featuring the same images as those seen in the game.

In order to recreate the monsters required, the special effects teams decided on using a lot of physical props and effects rather than going all-out on CG creations. While The Rock insists that the only reason he wanted to join the movie was the chance to shoot the BFG which he claims is huge. The Rock, Karl Urban and the rest of the actors playing the marines have been trained by Tom McAdams an ex-Army consultant with 25 years of experience, in order to make their movements a realistic depiction of an elite unit in combat.

All this may be interesting but what really won the crowd over at the Comic-Con was a 3 minute clip from the movie, taken from an overall 6 minute in-movie sequence. In the footage shown, Karl Urban is seen in a room, looking slightly hurt, sitting on the floor. Just as he passes out, the camera moves into his head, through his eye and, following the necessary flash, we are back in the room. This time however, we can see things through Urban's eyes in a style very similar to that used in the Doom games. The first images we see are of Mr. Urban himself in a mirror, another nod to the games. What follows next is a continuous barrage of FPS action with a lot of lock'n'load and the odd tribute to gaming, through the use of shadows and the familiar Doom 3 corridors and labs. This sequence alone seems to suggest that the Rock is right when he claims that The intensity of the game is in the movie. From minute 5 we're there. Non-stop train ride to Hell. Pay attention to yet another mention of the cauldron stacked basement by Mr. Johnson.

Back in the clip, the marine uses an assault rifle until, half way through the footage; he swaps it for a shotgun. The entire sequence is well made and seems to have retained much of what makes the games so popular. It remains for us to see if the movie makers will stop at this sequence or if they will manage to deliver an overall well crafted movie.

Doom the movie is expected to release in the U.S. on October 21, 2005 while stay with MegaGames for the trailer mentioned above as soon as it is released.

I think its gonna be good, kast year, a few concepts from the game weren't going into the movienow its going to be much like the game but not sure about the hell thing.only time will tell, the resident evil movies sucked and but you can pretty much say it is going to be better than resident evil.plus iD is working with them, so you pretty much have the Doom 3 game except were not sure about the story, will there be a virus? or the base/facility is built on hell, some portal you know anything could happen.

I've never played Doom 3 because I don't feel like getting the right hardware for it, but then who cares about the games? I'm going to see this movie because it has a bunch of guys killing a bunch of creatures. I've never played any of the Doom games to my memory, but from what I understand it's mostly just a bloodbath. That's why I'm going to see this movie. I'm not going to whine about how close to the story it is when there's stuff blowing up all over the screen.I must say this'll be one far cry from any s**tty Halo movie. Halo looks like it was made for young children, while Doom is...well I can't really explain it, but there you are.

What i DID mean by that is, the first 2 dooms were good because they were so different, and not drivn on gfx or storyline, however doom3 is completely driven on gfx, effects, and all that s**t, and all it does it it makes the game suck ass. I know its not a continuation asshole, if i meant that i wouldve said the word 'sequal' somewhere in my post, god some ppl in this world are so ignorant

STFU all gay ass ladies. Here's the real deal:The Rock says the movie's gonna bad ass...hmm, when was the last time his ass won an Oscar, let alone be nominated for one?Secondly, if iD is working along with it, they better be careful. I remember when Sega worked on The House of the Dead, OMFG it was the stupidest movie I've ever bootlegged.Third, Doom 3 and Half Life 2 sucks just as much as the XBOX. Who the hell cares? The only reason why D3 and HL2 exists is because BETTER games will be made, using their technologies and advancements.Lastly, all of u fags r gonna need girlfriends like that kid who posted pixes of his hippied self and his ex-pop's 360. LOL b!tches!!!
