Movie Trailer – The Dark Tower

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Nikolaj Arcel

Starring: Idris Elba, Tom Taylor, Matthew McConaughey

Release: August 4th, 2017

I will see this movie because Stephen King is my favorite author and I loved the Dark Tower series.  I highly doubt that I’ll enjoy it though.  First off, this is nothing like the books, which I know is something everyone screams when a novel they enjoyed gets adapted, but seriously, nothing like the books at all.  Secondly, the story has been turned into some Hollywood version that resembles a standard fantasy plot instead of the off-kilter fantasy/western/horror epic that makes Dark Tower great.  I don’t know why someone decided to butcher King’s opus up this much or why he allowed it, but I have to imagine that money was involved.  So, like I said, I will watch this movie, I will try my best to be entertained by what it IS rather than what it is NOT, but I’m not optimistic.
