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 »

100 Streets Trailer - Idris Elba

We’ve seen plenty of dramas featuring an ensemble of characters with interconnected stories like Crash, Traffic, Babel, Magnolia and more. Now we’re getting another out of the United Kingdom called 100 Streets. The film just recently opened across the pond, but it’s been picked up for a release in the United States early next year, and the official trailer has just arrived.

Idris Elba stars in the film as a former rugby star who has lost his way in life, cheating on his wife (Gemma Arterton), drinking heavily, and generally making a mess of everything he’s been given. And while the trailer focuses intently on all of his mistakes, there’s apparently much more to the story than meets the eye.

jumanji release date

Sony is reorganizing its release calendar, and that means a few big titles are getting shifted around. First off, The Dark Tower has been postponed from February 2017 to summer 2017, as we reported earlier today… and it’s taking over Jumanji‘s slot, which means Jumanji is now getting pushed to Christmas 2017.

Meanwhile, Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver has gone from being a spring movie to being a summer movie, and The Equalizer 2 — the first sequel of Denzel Washington’s entire career — is getting delayed one year to fall 2018. Get full details on the Jumanji release date and more below.  Read More »

The Take Trailer - Idris Elba

Earlier this year, there was an action thriller called Bastille Day slated to hit theaters in February across the pond. But then the terrorist attacks in Paris last fall resulted in a delay of the movie until April. The movie has already opened in a bunch of international territories, but during that time the terrorist attacks in Nice, France which happened on the titular holiday have forced the movie to have a new title here in the United States.

The Take is now the name of the new action thriller starring Idris Elba, who proves perfectly why he would make a great James Bond. We had previously already gotten a look at the film from the international trailer, but now a new The Take trailer has arrived for the domestic release this fall. Read More »

the dark tower tv series

Even by fantasy franchise standards, MRC’s adaptation of Stephen King‘s The Dark Tower looks pretty damn ambitious. Next year brings the much-anticipated movie starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey, but that’s just the first piece in the puzzle. Also in the works is a companion TV series that’ll fill in some of the the universe’s intricate backstory. Elba will reprise his role for the show, as will his Dark Tower movie co-star Tom Taylor. But the project is also looking to cast a younger actor who can play the teenage version of Elba’s character.  Read More »

dark tower interview

The fact that a film adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower has finished filming and it currently being edited for an early 2017 release date still amazes me. Just two years ago, this project looked completely and totally dead, the victim of an overly ambitious cross-media plan and budgetary constraints. And now, I can write an article that can include a picture of Idris Elba as Roland Deschain, the last Gunslinger at the top. This blows my mind.

From 2010 through 2015, Ron Howard was steering The Dark Tower alongside his producing partner Brian Grazer, eventually handing the project over to director Nikolaj Arcel. However, Howard and Grazer remained on board as producers and they’ve spilled their guts in a fantastic new interview where they explain the long journey to getting this movie off the ground.
