The Doom-ed Movie?
8:49 AM | Anthony Wang | 27 comments

Although receiving varied critiques, the Doom movie opened up at number one in North American movie theatres this past weekend. The game to film adaptation earned $15.4 million, still short of the movie industry jumping out of its chair to a profit. According to the film's distributors, nearly 69 percent of the viewers had played the Doom video games, meaning there was little interest to watch the film outside of the gaming world. This statistic could alter the way current game to film adaptations are directed such as the Halo and Dungeon Siege movies to garner more interest, in addition to make more profit.
