Hold Your Breath, ‘Doom’ Gets Rated…

Talk of Universal’s Doom adaptation went from bad to worse to sour a few months back, but after the San Diego Comic Con last month the movie had a revival in the hearts of fans- the word was good, very good. The buzz is building as the video game adaptation is heading to the big screen on October 21st and word on the street is “this could be cool!” Building on the momentum it was revealed today that Andrzej Bartkowiak’s adaptation has been given an “R” rating for strong violence/gore and language! Hopefully the good news continues until I’m watching the end credits roll. 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.
