Stephen King says Cujo makes an appearance in The Dark Tower movie

27 May 2017 12:59 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier this month we got our first look the long-awaited big screen adaptation of The Dark Tower, with eagle-eyed viewers noticing a couple of Stephen King Easter eggs with references to The Shining and It both present in the trailer.

However, it seems they won’t be the only references to King’s other works within the movie, and the author has revealed to IGN that there is one in particular that he’s fond of: “If viewers who are familiar with my work look very closely, they might see Cujo. Keep an eye out for Cujo in New York City.”

For anyone unaware, Cujo is the rabid St. Bernard at the centre of King’s 1981 novel, which was itself adapted for the big screen in 1983.

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 classified, expected soon

30 April 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | 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: Laura Haddock talks Transformers: The Last Knight & playing Wembley

10 April 2017 3:36 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: David Sztypuljak

Last week we got to hear from feature-film newcomer Isabela Moner on her role as Izabella in the latest movie in the Transformers franchise and today it’s the turn of fellow Brit Laura Haddock. Laura has previously appeared in numerous TV shows including The Level, Da Vinci’s Demons and Luther on stage and had parts in The Inbetweeners movie and Guardians of the Galaxy. By her own admission the level has increased somewhat as she takes on the role of Oxford university professor Vivian Wembley in the Michael Bay film.

During the preview footage we got to see (see our full explanation video below), we got to see the introduction of Haddock’s character as she’s thrown out of an Autobot and brought to see Anthony Hopkins at his mansion alongside Mark Wahlberg. We also found out what it’s like to be introduced in such a physical manor, »

And The Next James Bond Is…

5 April 2017 12:52 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Let’s take a few minutes to reflect on what could have been.

After two years of speculation, it seems like the question of who will be the seventh actor to take on the iconic role in the long-running film series will have to go on the back burner. Last Monday, the New York Post gossip section published an article citing multiple sources that reported that current Bond actor Daniel Craig is in the final stages of negotiating a return to his most iconic role. If true, it would mark a pretty serious change of tune for Craig, who, in an oft quoted Time Out interview from October 2015, responded to the question of his returning to do another Bond movie thusly: “I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists. No, not at the moment. Not at all. That’s fine. I’m over it at the moment. We’re done. All »

Drama Makes the Running at 2017 MipTV

1 April 2017 11:41 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Cannes — “American Gods,” “Ride Upon the Storm,” from “Borgen” creator Adam Price, and Beta Films’ very high-end “Babylon Berlin,” co-directed by Tom Tykwer (“Cloud Atlas”), all bow at a 2017 MipTV trade fair which captures the world’s TV industry in fairly dramatic transition.

Pay TV ($204 billion last year) passed TV advertising ($182 billion) as the single biggest source of funding for the TV economy, according to Ampere Analysis, which will present an analysis of future TV at Mip. By 2021, Ott subscriptions in the U.S. and Western Europe will pass traditional pay subs as the favorite way to watch TV.

Already, at 142 million to pay TV’s 219 million in 2016, Ott subs ranked way above free TV households (109 million) in the Western Europe/U.S. in 2016, a recent Ampere Analysis study suggested.

Traditional TV groups still accounted for 80% of TV spend in 2016 in the U.S. and Western Europe. But, up from »

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…
