Well, I like the casting choices. It's been stated in the reveal article in Entertainment Weekly that the first movie won't be just a movie of the Gunslinger, so I guess we'll see where they go with the plot. They are going to have to simplify it a little bit for movie audiences, I think.

They really should have done this as a TV series, I like the casting but I just see this getting stretched so thin to fit the normal movie length.

"In yet another new post about Sony's forthcoming The Dark Tower adaptation, director Nikolaj Arcel has confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that the film (well, films, should enough people show up for the first one) will essentially function as a sequel to Stephen King's epic series.

Here's the quote:

“The hardcore fans of The Dark Tower series will know that this is actually a sequel to the books in a way,” Arcel says. “It has a lot of the same elements, a lot of the same characters, but it is a different journey.”"

I figured when they posted the teaser image with the horn.

Looks like a very loose interpretation. I see stuff from Gunslinger, The Waste Lands, Wolves of the Calla, Song of Sussanah... all in this trailer.

Still, though... very excited to see this and how they play with this "sequel" and how the horn factors in.

It takes place after the books, a sequel of sorts.

I watched this today and I hated everything about it. A total waste of Idris. Matty M felt like he didn't even care enough to ham it up much. There was nothing in this that felt special or gripping or in anyway made you feel like this movie needed to be made.
