The Dark Tower trailer features Easter eggs for The Shining and It

4 May 2017 8:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday fans got their first look at the long-awaited trailer for the film adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series of novels, but tucked away in the background of Matthew McConaughey’s Man in Black unleashing hell on earth and Idris Elba’s Gunslinger performing one of the sickest looking reloads in cinematic history is a photograph of the Overlook Hotel present in arguably the author’s most famous work, The Shining.

There is also a brief shot of young hero Jake stumbling across a destroyed circus with some balloons floating, hinting at Pennywise the Clown and It.

For those unaware, the different worlds found within The Dark Tower are used as a hub to connect all of Stephen King’s novels into a singular universe – something the film is clearly tipping its hat too with these references.

The Dark Tower Trailer – Flickering Myth Reaction

The Flickering Myth team reacts…

Should we be worried about The Dark Tower? After all, we’re only four months from release and the first trailer only landed yesterday [watch it here]. It invokes memories of a few years ago when 20th Century Fox held back trailers for Fantastic Four because there was a lot of trouble brewing behind the scenes. The same thing happened last year when Sony kept delaying the first trailer for their Ghostbusters remake. Can we expect to see similar stories coming out of The Dark Tower once the dust has settled?

We’ll soon find out but for now, let’s see what the Flickering Myth staff thought of the trailer.

The Dark Tower trailer analysis and breakdown

3 May 2017 12:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

John Saavedra May 4, 2017

The first trailer for Stephen King's The Dark Tower has arrived, and we found tons of references, clues, and easter eggs...

For a long time, it was thought to be impossible - a film adaptation of Stephen King's fantasy horror epic about a Gunslinger traveling through different worlds to stop an evil Man in Black from destroying the fixed point that holds all of reality together: the Dark Tower. Yet, we'll finally see this story on screen, as the man in black flees across the desert, and the gunslinger follows. 

After suffering several setbacks through the years - getting this movie made has been a journey almost as epic as Roland's - The Dark Tower is almost here. Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair) directed and co-wrote the film adaptation. Fellow Danish filmmaker Anders Thomas Jensen helped rewrite the script, which was originally penned by Akiva Goldsman and Jeff Pinkner. »

Watch: 'The Dark Tower' Trailer Is Here and It Is Ferocious

3 May 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey have kept busy engaging in a bit of The Dark Tower role playing on Twitter, teasing each other in character as gunslinger Roland Deschain and the Man in Black, respectively. It was a fun bit of meta-marketing that may be cheesy to those unfamiliar with Stephen King's books, but surprisingly in keeping with the series' tradition of blending our world with its world.  Anyways, that culminated in the very first official footage of The Dark Tower ever released. It was just an appetizer, though, for today's main course. Finally, after long, long last, we have the trailer for Sony's The Dark Tower. Check it out.   The Dark Tower Directed by: Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair) Written by: Akiva Goldsman, Nikolaj...

‘The Dark Tower’ Trailer Breakdown: The 5 Biggest Takeaways From the Ambitious Stephen King Adaptation

3 May 2017 8:25 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For years, Stephen King’s “The Dark Tower” series was seen as unadaptable. Inspired by the 1855 Robert Browning poem “Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came,” the story came to King in piecemeal — he started it with a single line, and fleshed out the plot as he moved through it. The resulting eight-book sci-fi/fantasy/horror saga is a mind-warping, inter-dimensional story that fuses the classic elements of a western showdown with existential turmoil and a meta-narrative that ultimately involved King himself as a character.

First Trailer for ‘The Dark Tower’ Finds Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey Facing Off

3 May 2017 4:06 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The man in black fled across the desert, and The Dark Tower trailer followed. After languishing for years in the development wastelands, Stephen King’s sprawling fantasy epic series The Dark Tower makes the leap to the big screen this summer. King’s series of eight novels have been kicking around Hollywood since at least 2007, jumping from studio to studio, when first J.J. Abrams and then Ron Howard attempted to bring the saga to both the big and small screen.

Now A Royal Affair director Nikolaj Arcel has the reigns, and he’s ushering The Dark Tower in with Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey in the leads. In the film, 11-year-old Jake Chambers (Tom Taylor) discovers clues about an alternate dimension known as Mid-World. The boy eventually finds himself sucked into this dimension, where he befriends Roland Deschain (Elba), a gunslinger on a quest to reach the mythical Dark Tower. »

The first trailer for The Dark Tower has finally arrived – and it looks pretty epic

3 May 2017 1:38 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Scott Davis

After what seems like years of waiting, the first official look at the eagerly-anticipated adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower has finally arrived with our very first glimpse at the new trailer, which you can view below!

Idris Elba (Star Trek Beyond) stars in the lead role as Roland Deschain who is “on a quest to reach the “Dark Tower” that resides in End-World and reach the nexus point between time and space that he hopes will save all existence from extinction.” But in hot pursuit is vicious sorcerer named Walter Padick (Oscar Winner Matthew McConaughey), an evil sorcerer who stands in his way.

The film has taken quite a while to make it onto the big screen, even with the delays to the new interpretation that set it back from its original February 2017 release. Indeed, in 2007 it was looking like J.J. Abrams was set »

First going into development in 2007, it’s been a long and winding road to the big screen for Stephen King’s dimension spanning epic novel series The Dark Tower, with both Jj Abrams and Ron Howard on board as directors. Now, it’s in the hands of Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair), with Idris Elba playing the heroic gunslinger Roland Deschain and Matthew McConaughey as his nemesis The Man in Black. With the first finally set to come our way tomorrow, the pair took their antagonistic relationship to Twitter, sparring online and giving us our first look at the movie in the process. Merely a tease of what’s to come tomorrow, these brief videos do give us a good look at what to expect, with McConaughey in full on evil mode, and Elba showing off some nifty gun skills. @idriselba I know this.
