Why are the makers of the DOOM Annihilation movie making a DOOM movie at all if they don't like video games and DOOM? Doesn't it seem like a waste of time?

Money. It’s a gas, according to Pink Floyd. Frankly, I think turning video games into films has historically been a losing proposition as far as quality goes. However, from the point of view of the producers, it is demonstrably true that you can still make a fortune off of a stinker with a quality special effects team and decent acting.

Just because a film doesn’t do well is no reflection of the team that produced it. Many of the world’s most talented artists (and most of them are not on camera) have come together many, many times to create…..giant flaming piles of garbage. It’s just the nature of beast. Making a quality film is just not an easy task.
