The 2005 edition of [url="http://www.comic-con.org"]Comic-Con International[/url] ended yesterday (purpose: "creating awareness of, and appreciation for, comics and related popular art forms"); [b]Todd Hollenshead[/b] (id Software CEO) along with [b]The Rock[/b], [b]Karl Urban[/b] and two producers were all there to "publicize" the upcoming movie adaptation of DOOM. The attendees, indeed, got the privilege to see two short clips from it in addition to participate to a Q&A session. The first footage revealed one surprising fact compared to our previous news, namely that the story will really take place on Mars and not on a fictitious planet; also, the environments seemed to be looking very like those of DOOM 3. The second clip most notably showed Karl Urban viewed from a first-person perspective, that is, like in a FPS game! Todd Hollenshead, by the way, confirmed this impression that the movie and DOOM 3 were both very linked: "There are parts that are straight out of the game, [...] When you play the game and go see the movie, you'll see a direct correlation." Here's a cut from [b]Gamecloud[/b]'s report: [quote]Everyone on the panel said that every effort was being made to make the movie faithful to the game and that it will be a R rated film. While there will be some CGI, the Doom monsters like the Baron, the Imp and the Pinky Demon will mostly be real monsters created by the Stan Winston Studios (who created the creatures in all the Terminator movies, Aliens, Predator and many more).[/quote] ---- Links: |- [url="http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/weblogs/brain/archives/001814.html"]Doom: 'A train ride straight to hell'[/url] |- [url="http://www.gamecloud.com/article.php?article_id=731"]Doom Movie Comic-Con Panel Report[/url] [07-19-2k5] New links: |- [url="http://www.dwaynejohnsonfever.net/Movie-Newsboard"]Dwayne Johnson Fever Movie Newsboard[/url] |- [url="http://media.filmforce.ign.com/media/490/490104/vids_1.html"]IGN Videos of the DOOM Panel[/url] - [url="http://filmforce.ign.com/articles/634/634545p1.html"]Comic-Con Coverage[/url]
