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…

Thoughts I Had... "The Dark Tower" Poster

21 March 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Chris here. With the long (lonnnnnnnnng) road to production, reshuffling of realease dates, and confusing messages on a spin off series, I can't blame you if you've lost track of Stephen King adaptation The Dark Tower. The franchise hopeful has tradeed hands from Ron Howard to A Royal Affair's Nikolaj Arcel, and lost a few potential stars along the way. But with a looming summer release, it's about time to start seeing some of the goods (even if those set photos of a leather-clad Idris Elba should have kept this at the top of our minds). At long last here is the first poster, with some thoughts after the jump...

The Dark Tower teaser poster invites you into new worlds

20 March 2017 9:34 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Many fans of Stephen King will certainly be familiar with his series of novels, The Dark Tower. On the 28th of July his ambitious story comes to the big screen. not as the typical adaptation we’ve all come to expect but as a quasi-sequel which is a continuation from the ending of The Dark Tower VII.

Nikolaj Arcel, who directed A Royal Affair, has taken the helm on Kings sci-fi western horror with a cast of Idris Elba as Roland Deschian, a frontiersman Knight, Matthew McConaughey as Walter O’Dim, an ageless deceiver and sorcerer and Tom Taylor as Jake Chambers a son like figure to Deschain who helps him complete his journey.

With a lack of official synopsis for The Dark Tower available we can’t divulge too much of the plot but it centres around Jake, a child adventurer who uncovers numerous clues regarding another dimension. »

The Dark Tower: the first poster

Kirsten Howard Mar 20, 2017

Sony are finally gearing up for the release of their Dark Tower movie with a brand new poster, and you can see it here...

It's been a bit of an emotional rollercoaster for Dark Tower fans, but it's looking like Sony are tentatively starting up some marketing for the film at long last.

See related  The Big Bang Theory: Sheldon prequel is going ahead

After Warner Bros backed out of bankrolling the project and Ron Howard lost interest in directing, Sony were the ones who stepped up with the cash, and Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair) slipped behind the camera to helm the Stephen King adaptation.

There were then some problems with the visual effects which saw the film's release pushed back six months, and we recently reported that reshoots were also underway.

But here we have it, the first poster for The Dark Tower. Take a look. »

Reshoots are underway on The Dark Tower movie

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.

See related  Preacher renewed for longer second season Preacher episode 10 review: Call And Response

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 »

A Low-Key Berlinale Yields Some Foreign Oscar Contenders to Watch

19 February 2017 3:03 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Situated as it is in the dank tail-end of a cold German winter, the Berlinale never attracts as much attention from awards-watchers as its fellow European majors Cannes and Venice: The former, after all, takes place in sunny spring climes, when everyone has recovered sufficiently from the last awards season to contemplate the next one, while the latter glamorously kicks off the gilded fall festivals, handing the baton to Telluride and Toronto. Berlin’s programming, meanwhile, is arguably the most proudly esoteric of the three, with an emphasis on newer filmmakers and underexposed filmmaking regions and demographics.

None of that, needless to say, is exactly music to Oscar pundits’ ears, but for the keen-eyed observer, Berlin annually turns up a few contenders that stay the course all the way to the following February. It’s rare for a Berlinale premiere to make quite as big a splash as Wes Anderson »

The one chance for the entire world to get involved with the Academy Awards has always been the best foreign language film category. Since any country can submit a film each year, though, that means the competition is intense. Let’s take a look at the countries that have snagged nominations this year and see how they’ve performed in the past in the hopes of shedding some light on what might happen come February 26.

This year the five nominees for best foreign language film are Land of Mine from Denmark, A Man Called Ove from Sweden, The Salesman from Iran, Tanna from Australia, and Toni Erdmann from Germany.

Ambi picks up Scandi thriller 'Guardian Angel'

10 February 2017 10:01 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Finnish-Danish-Croatian co-pro is currently shooting in Croatia and Denmark.

Ambi Distribution has acquired worldwide sales rights (Scandinavia, Iceland and former Yugoslavia) to thriller The Guardian Angel, now shooting.

Writer-director Arto Halonen [pictured] is currently filming the Finnish-Danish-Croatian co-production on location in Croatia and Denmark.

Pilou Asbæk (A War), Josh Lucas (The Lincoln Lawyer), Rade Serbedzija (Downton Abbey) and Cyron Melville (A Royal Affair) lead the cast.

The English-language film is based on the true story of Copenhagen’s Hypnosis Murders of 1951; a police investigation discovers that one man used manipulation and hypnosis to turn another man into a robber and a murderer.

“The story holds great interest for us today, not only as proof of the external power of controlling the human mind but also as it focuses on the visible and invisible manipulations acting upon us and affecting us as human beings,” said Halonen. “Focused on a single, fascinating case of an actual hypnosis crime, [link »

5 January 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By: Carson Blackwelder

Managing Editor

The greatest thing about the best foreign-language film category is the recognition of works from all around the world. Throughout the years, movies made outside the United States of America have gotten the recognition they deserve thanks to the implementation of this specific award. With the 2017 Oscars right around the corner, let’s take a look back at the distribution of nominations and wins across the seven continents that make up this big world we inhabit.

This year’s best foreign-language film contenders are: Toni Erdmann (Germany), The Salesman (Iran), Land of Mine (Denmark), A Man Called Ove (Sweden), Paradise (Russia), The King’s Choice (Norway), My Life as a Zucchini (Switzerland), It’s Only the End of the World (Canada), and Tanna (Australia). This site’s namesake, The Hollywood’s Scott Feinberg, lists the first five of those as frontrunners and the other four as major threats. »
