If you learned there was a documentary named Doomed! and that it was about a Fantastic Four film, you might well conclude the movie in question was last year’s famously troubled, Miles Teller-starring reboot. But no! Writer-director Marty Langford’s doc actually concerns a 1994 adaptation that was produced by Roger Corman but never actually released for reasons Langford explores in his film.
It was announced over the weekend that Doomed! The Untold Story of Roger Corman’s Fantastic Four has been acquired for distribution by Uncork’d Entertainment and will be released on VOD Oct. 11 and on DVD Dec. 20.
“Doomed! is such a compelling documentary — and not just for comic book movies but anyone intrigued by the ins and outs of Hollywood and business,” said Uncork’d Entertainment President Keith Leopard. “In short, it’s a Fantastic movie.”
