the dark tower featurette

Can the dense mythology of The Dark Tower be condensed into a two-minute featurette narrated by Idris Elba, Matthew McConaughey and Stephen King? Kind of.

The first look at the film outside of its cryptic trailers dives into the motivations of the characters played by Elba and McConaughey, shows some new footage of the film, offers up some glimpses behind-the-scenes, and boils the story down to its essence: a fight between good and evil.

The Dark Tower TV Spots

Sony Pictures is bringing the long-awaited adaptation of Stephen King‘s book series The Dark Tower to theater at the beginning of August. The first trailer for the sci-fi western was more confusing than anything, especially for anyone who isn’t familiar with the book series, though our trailer breakdown may have helped a bit.

Now some TV spots for The Dark Tower have started hitting the small screen, presumably taking advantage of the audience watching the NBA Finals, and while they don’t really do much to explain the story more, they do show off more of Idris Elba slinging guns like a badass while Matthew McConaughey threatens to turn the world into hell.

the mountain between us trailer

Despite a vague title that sounds somewhat like a romantic-comedy, Kate Winslet and Idris Elba aren’t here to romance each other in The Mountain Between Us (though I would watch that rom-com).

The two of them play strangers whose plane crashes on a desolate Colorado mountaintop and must fight to survive against the freezing elements, wild animals, and their own attraction to each other — it was inevitable, they are the most beautiful people in the world — in the recently released official trailer.

The Mountain Between Us header

Two of England’s best acting exports are joining forces for a survival romance about two people who escape the wreckage of a plane crash. Idris Elba and Kate Winslet star in The Mountain Between Us as a surgeon and photojournalist, respectively, who are injured in a crash and must rely on each other to survive in the freezing Colorado mountains. Naturally, they fall in love in the process. I mean, have you seen those two? They’re two of the hottest people on the planet. Of course they fall for each other.

USA Today has our first look at some photos from the movie, as well as some quotes from the director that make me think this is the beginning of a Revenant-style campaign to make sure everyone knows how tough it was to shoot out in the elements.

The Dark Tower Teaser Poster

Stephen King fans have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of the first trailer for the adaptation of the author’s book series The Dark Tower from Columbia Pictures and MRC. It sounds like they won’t have to wait much longer though, because Stephen King just released the first teaser poster for the film.

The Dark Tower teaser poster seems like a pretty simple piece of marketing at first, using juxtaposing images of Idris Elba as The Gunslinger, Roland Deschain, and Tom Taylor as Jake Chambers opposite an image of Matthew McConaughey as The Man in Black, the silhouette created by the buildings around them should reveal an image familiar to fans of the books.

guerrilla trailer

Showtime has shared some big news and released some notable trailers so far this week. They announced the date for the return of Twin Peaks, renewed The Affair for season four, and gave us our first real good look at Jim Carrey’s I’m Dying Up Here. Today they also have a first glimpse of John Ridley‘s (12 Years a Slave) new drama, Guerilla. Ridley wrote and directed most of the miniseries’ six episodes, which stars Freida PintoBabou Ceesay, and producer Idris Elba as members of an underground cell.

Below, watch the Guerrilla trailer.

the dark tower image

The last time we heard from Sony’s upcoming adaptation of The Dark Tower, it was being delayed from February 17, 2017 to July 28, 2017, giving director Nikolaj Arcel and his team a few extra months to finish their movie. It’s a decision that makes sense on two fronts: the original post-production timeframe did seem overly ambitious and of course the long-delayed, frequently troubled path to bring Stephen King‘s magnum opus to the big screen was going to offer up one more speed bump in the home stretch.

And while we have to wait an extra five months to finally see how Hollywood has managed to bring King’s truly strange and truly wonderful fantasy series to life, there is a new image from the film to look at right now, if that’s your thing.

Avengers Infinity War Set Photo - Thanos

In the Marvel cinematic universe, everything is leading to The Avengers: Infinity War. Right now, the Mad Titan known as Thanos doesn’t have any of the Infinity Stones in his possession that will lead to this massive conflict, but he’ll inevitably collect them, fit them snugly in the Infinity Gauntlet, and wreak havoc on Earth and maybe even the other realms.

However, as of now we’ve only seen five of the six Infinity Stones. There’s the Space Stone, which is inside the Tesseract and now in Odin’s vault; the Reality Stone, which is presumed to still be in The Collector’s museum after being handed over by Sif and Volstagg; the Mind Stone, which is on Vision’s forehead after being removed from Loki’s scepter, the Power Stone, which is locked up at Nova Corps headquarters; and the Time Stone, which is contained in the Eye of Agamotto at Kamar Taj.

So where could the Soul Stone be? One fan theory has an an interesting idea of where we might find the final Infinity Stone. Read More »
