The Dark Tower Trailer




I'm not a huge King fan and here never read the series let alone one of his books (Almost finished The Stand) I do like Elba a ton . Trailer looks decent.

I am a huge King fan.
But most movies based on his novels are subpar. With the exceptions of Shawshank and the Shining.

Dark Tower is one of his big series, so I'm not expecting much.

At wrk so I cant watch trailer yet.

So now that I have seen the trailer, I'm thinking it's garbage.

Not as a movie itself, but to take the name of this series and simplify it so much leaving out major characters so it's just Elba vs. McCaughnahey(sp?) with a kid tagging along is disrespectful to the books, and clearly only about making some easy money.

As a movie itself, it might not be too bad.

Ok. I figured they were doing something. That is to bad. Maybe it would had been better HBO series or something like that.

Movie looks good but nothing like the books. Might have been better just calling it something else.
