Rosamund Pike Confirms What We Suspected All Along About 2005's Doom
Throughout her career, actress Rosamund Pike has made a name for herself in several notable roles. Pike rose to prominence as double-crossing agent Miranda Frost in the 2002 James Bond film "Die Another Day." Her early filmography also includes roles in the 2005 film "Pride & Prejudice," 2012's "Wrath of The Titans," 2016's "A United Kingdom," and 2020's "I Care A Lot." She earned a best actress Oscar nomination for her performance in the 2014 David Fincher film "Gone Girl" (via The Hollywood Reporter).
However, Pike's career has experienced some dips alongside those big wins. One of the notable low points on her resumé is the 2005 film "Doom." The movie, in which she co-stars with Karl Urban and Dwayne Johnson in the early days of his film career, was a critical and commercial flop. Per Rotten Tomatoes, the film adapted from the first-person shooter video game of the same name earned only 17% from critics and 34% from audiences. It also exited the box office with a domestic total of $28.2 million and a worldwide gross of $58 million on a budget of $60 million (per Box Office Mojo).
In a recent interview promoting her upcoming Amazon show "Wheel of Time," Pike discussed the film and her role as Samantha Grimm in the film. In doing so, she confirmed what we suspected all along about 2005's "Doom."
