The Dark Tower trailer classified, expected soon

17 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Aside from a leaked trailer (which was quickly removed), a few images, and a teaser poster, we’ve seen very little in the way of marketing for the upcoming big screen adaptation of Stephen King’s fantasy epic The Dark Tower, as it’s release has been pushed back from February to July and now finally August.

Well, it looks like all of that is about to change, as Trailer Track is reporting that the first trailer for the Nikolaj Arcel-directed movie has been classified by Consumer Protection BC in Canada, meaning that it will likely arrive online within the next week or two (perhaps with the North American release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 this Friday?). The trailer has been approved for exhibition with all films, and runs for 2 minutes and 32 seconds.

Exclusive: Director Richard Kelly and Jake Gyllenhaal on Why ‘Donnie Darko’ Still Resonates Today

6 April 2017 8:50 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

On Oct. 26, 2001, Donnie Darko, director Richard Kelly’s sci-fi film about a despondent teenager (Jake Gyllenhaal in his second major film role) who befriends a giant bunny named Frank (James Duval), was released in theaters. The film told a cryptic narrative of a high schooler who is sent on an existential journey after he escapes death from a falling jet engine and learns that the world has just over 28 days before it ends. In that time, Donnie fends off the torments of being a teen -- a testy older sister (Gyllenhaal’s real-life older sister, Maggie), concerned parents (Mary McDonnell and Holmes Osborne), overbearing teachers (Beth Grant), mild flirtations with a new female student (Jena Malone) -- while trying to figure out, in some ways, how to save the world.

“That was a movie that was more about the psychological journey of adolescence and the confusion of it all,” Gyllenhaal tells Et. And while it »

The Dark Tower movie has been pushed back to August

31 March 2017 7:44 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although we got to see a poster earlier this month, we’re still waiting on the first trailer for the big screen adaptation of Stephen King’s fantasy epic The Dark Tower, and now comes word that the film has been delayed for a second time.

Unlike last time, when it was pushed back from February 17th to July 28th, the latest delay is just a single week, with the film swapping dates with The Emoji Movie and moving to August 4th. Apparently this is the final move for the film, and was done to allow The Emoji Movie “more summertime play”.

Now, let’s hope we get that trailer soon…

21 of cinema’s worst elevators

20 March 2017 8:10 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kirsten Howard Mar 31, 2017

From The Shining to I Origins, these are just some of the worst offenders when it comes to moving between floors...

This article contains spoilers for just about every film on its list.

I don’t know when it started exactly.

When I was very young, it was fine. I maybe even enjoyed getting on an elevator and being whisked off, but somewhere in the timeline of my life, something changed. I began to dread stepping onto one. My heart would pound, a cold sweat would creep down my neck and my breath would quicken.

“What’s wrong?” a bemused acquaintance would ask as we were about to embark.

“Oh! Nothing, really,” I’d respond as casually as I could for someone suddenly about to lose control of their bowels. “I just thought I might take the stairs. Bit of exercise, you know.”

“But it…it’s 18 flights, »

Reshoots are underway on The Dark Tower movie

9 March 2017 6:56 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kirsten Howard Mar 9, 2017

We're still without a trailer for Idris Elba's Dark Tower flick, and reshoots were taking place over the weekend...

At the back end of last year we heard some pretty disappointing news about the Idris Elba-starring Stephen King adaptation The Dark Tower.

Fans of the books (and of Elba) had been eagerly awaiting a new trailer to drop, but in November we were abruptly informed that one would not be forthcoming, and that the movie's release date had in fact been pushed back six months due to the complicated visual effects that were needed to do the project justice.

Four months on from that news and we still don't have a trailer for the film, however we do know that last weekend Elba and the crew were out and about in »
