The Dark Tower Trailer


It seems like we’ve been waiting forever to see Stephen King’s The Dark Tower be made into a film, there were rumours of a TV series and a set of films, to be honest I’m not sure if the TV series is still a go or if it’s dead. Anyway here’s the trailer………

So little over a week a go The Dark Tower trailer made it’s way onto YouTube and everywhere else. Finally it’s here, now I’ve not read the books I’ve always felt like I wanted to but never got round to it. Stephen Kings books have always been popular and I’m more looking forward to IT than I am this but this does look good.


When I first viewed the trailer I wasn’t overly impressed but on second viewing I think the film should be decent, there seems like there’s a bit of a generic action film feel to some of the scenes shown in the trailer, so it’ll be down to the cast to win over anyone who also feels that way.


There’s no questioning Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey they are both fantastic actors. So are you looking forward to seeing this? If you’ve read the books does it look accurate? Let me know in comments or fire a tweet at me @ABsHorrorShow on Twitter.

Excitedness Rating – 6/10

  1. I tried reading the first book years ago…and I stopped a third of the way through, because I didn’t like the narration style and not enough was explained to me. I felt like I needed to constantly check Wikipedia to understand what was going on (and this was before the first smart phone, which meant I’d have to be near my dad’s desktop anytime I wanted to read the book). I haven’t tried reading ti since, but maybe someday in the future. In the meantime, I think I’ll check out this movie. It looks freaking awesome.

  2. I am the only person who wasn’t into the King Gunslinger series. However, Idris is going to turn in a respectable performance. McConaughey surprised me though. He just may pull off the menace that is required for the Man in Black.
