“DOOM: ANNIHILATION follows a group of space marines as they respond to a distress call from a base on a Martian moon, only to discover it’s been overrun by demonic creatures who threaten to create Hell on Earth.“
The “space marines” in the synopsis are also 100% confirmed to be UAC marines, the team from the game franchise.
Lastly, below you’ll also find our exclusive first look at the film with these three images.
The film stars Amy Manson (Atlantis), Dominic Mafham (Ophelia), Luke Allen-Gale (Dominion), and Nina Bergman (The Car: Road to Revenge).
