Official DOOM Trailer now Online

Filed under

Gaming enthusiasts should be pleased with the teaser, which shows a number of scenes that seem to clearly and intentionally evoke the Doom gaming experience. And the film's tone appears to be true to the original game and its two follow-ups.

Particularly noteworthy are the movie's creatures, suitably reminiscent of the baddies you've gleefully blown to bits in the game, and skillfully realized by make-up effects master Stan Winston and his creative team - the same studio that created the monsters for Alien, Predator and many other creature features.
The Doom movie, in case you've been gaming so intensely that you haven't heard, follows John Grimm (Karl Urban), a Marine nicknamed "Reaper," who travels with his squad to a Martian research facility where all hell is breaking loose.

Sarge, played by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, leads the team to the facility, owned and operated by the Union Aerospace Corporation, where researchers have just discovered the final 10% of the human genome... but with unexpected side effects. Specifically, residents are turning up dead or missing, frayed and bloody lab coats are found, and severed limbs are discovered. It seems that the project has somehow unleashed monstrous, infernal beings and now it's up to John to destroy them and save the day.

Watch the Teaser! Woohoo!


Oh man, I can hardly wait! I got goosebumps! I can't wait! I can't wait! <jumps up and down clapping>

You talk the talk, but do you waddle the waddle?

Black Lab Enterprise Linux 8 Service Pack 1 Supports Rebootless Kernel Installs

Softpedia was informed by the Black Lab Linux development team about the immediate availability of the first Service Pack (SP) of the Black Lab Enterprise Linux 8 OS. Based on the long-term supported Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system, Black Lab Enterprise Linux 8 Service Pack 1 (SP1) is now powered by Linux kernel 4.4.0-45.66, the same version used upstream, which is patched against the nasty "Dirty COW" bug that could have allowed a local attacker to gain administrative privileges. Now that Canonical is offering kernel live patch services for its Ubuntu 16.04 LTS release, Black Lab Linux developers also implemented the well-known Kspice tool for offering users rebootless kernel installs. Additionally, Black Lab Enterprise Linux 8 SP1 adds full UEFI support and the ability to install Snap packages.
