    You mentioned when it showed Jake "This is complicated." But I think they have taken a lot of the complicated out and for me that will be a huge disappointment! Visually it looks amazing and the cast fit their part. I realize that it's been said this is a continuation of the original stories, picking up where we last see Roland, but that's not the story I wanted. There is very little I see in the trailer that has held true to the books. I'm going to watch it obviously, but I think it's going to break my heart a little.😟

    I'm hoping it's gonna be great, it looks like it can be from the trailer. I'm expecting quite a different interpretation from the books (there's a massive story there) so just something based on that but keeping it's soul, and done well making a good film on it's own, and I'm totally happy.

    Did anyone see Pennywise? Pause real quickly at the end of 4:16 when he's walking in the forest area.

    you know if Roland had been portrayed as black in the book...NO PROBLEM. King has ruined every movie he has been associated with except the first Shining and that was probably because he wasn't allowed. the actor looks cool and i dont have a problem with him, but FOLLOW THE SENSE OF THE BOOK! Oh well, thanks King!

    I'm a huge fan of the books. I have heard that this movie is NOT following the books. It's a kind of sequel to the books. Its hard to explain without giving away major spoilers to the books. So I think its going to capture the feel of the books but not match it scene for scene. We shall see. It comes out on my birthday so I'll be using this as my free birthday ticket and I can't wait to see it!!

    Grace, if you "confirm" that the Man in Black is used in King's lore across multiple novels, please give examples. I seem to follow, but I just ask that you explain further.

    Idris Elba is so fucking good for this role. He's gonna be fucking awesome as Roland.

    It's funny how you keep bringing up the TV vibe because there will be an accompanying TV show that ties into the Movie. If I'm not mistaken.

  • Edgard Andres Amavizca Felix

    "that kid" is important?!!! "that kid" is Jake Chambers a Gunslinger. Son (adopted) of Roland. Respect, please. Hehe...sorry, I'm a big fan.

    I was just at a conference last week and Sony showed us about 8 minutes of material from this movie and the trailer, while very good, doesn't fully do it justice. The cast works extremely well together and the visuals are absolutely stunning from the 8 minutes I saw. I think this will be a very good adaptation and I am extremely excited to see this movie as a fan of The Dark Tower books

    I'm kind of disapointed with the direction they're taking with this movie (nothing related to Idris Elba being Roland, loved that choice). But the story kind of looks like it's being shown in Jake's perspective. Like a kid's adventure movie with some horror element. Nevertheless, as a tower junkie i'm still excited and hoping this is one of those 3 hours long movie. And hope it's a comercial success so we can have the whole saga in theater.

  • Tyrone Spear-Samuels

    Never read the books, but i am a stephen king fan and an idris elba fan, so i think it will be a worthy undertaking to hit the theaters on Aug 4...

    They narrowed the plot to "save the tower=save the world", the worst kind of cliche ever. Roland's search for the Tower has a much stronger meaning. This movie will be bland, rushed and generic.

    I am new to "The Dark Tower". However if the gunslinger is a white character in the book, they shouldn't have change it into black. I was against the race bending in "Ghost In The Shell" and I am against the race bending in this movie.

    I'm extremely excited for this. Hearing the gunslinger mantra surprisingly brought tears to my eyes. I think fans of the books who are mad about this adaptation are forgetting a very important aspect of the series. The dark tower exists within a multiverse similar to those found in Marvel and DC comics. It makes me very excited to think that this version may still exist within the original series. There have been other clues that lead me to think the books and the movie may be more connected than that even.

    I love Idris Elba and Mathew McConaughey but they do not seem to fit Roland or The Man in Black. IDC if Roland is a black guy but he's suppose to be a Clint Eastwood like character. That being said, it looks like they RUINED the series! Eddie and Susannah aren't in it. How are they going to make a movie and leave out two of the main characters!?! Book 6 is called Song of Susannah, but she wont be in the movie? And what is it with Jake trying to convince Roland to go on his quest? He has been hunting The Man in Black for hundreds of years! Jake is suppose to die, that's how he appears at the waystation. it isn't until the 3rd book that he goes through the haunted house. And Who are these ninja characters? Not in the book. Looks Very disappointing!

  • Cesar Rivera

    I feel like Matthew McConaughey's and Idris Ella's roles should be reversed and not just because Idris Elba is black but Matthew McConaughey is just not intimidating in any way. He's physically not intimidating and then he talks and he's even less intimidating I think he would work fine as a hero but is almost laughable as a villian. It is just a trailer though we'll see how it turns out in the end.

  • DestinedFilms

    I'm really excited for August 4th. As far as the comments I've read through for it being a generic trailer because it's been done before, almost everything has been done before but I think what matters is how it's presented and delivered.
    Idris is a great actor and one of my favorites and Matthew is exceptional as well and I can't wait to see how they play of each other. As for the kid I didn't have a problem with him, I thought from what was shown he was decent to say the least.
    Now I haven't read the original source material but whenever a film is heavily based or directly adapted by a book series I always make sure to read it before seeing the movie.
    Other than that unless you've read the source material and you're a real die hard fan I think it's a we're so custom to trying to find a flaw with movies these days that we forget they're made to entertain.
    Watch the movie, then judge accordingly.

  • librapaladin81

    As a Stephen King and Dark Tower fan, overall I'm happy with what I saw in a first real look at this adaptation from the books.  I think it looks promising.  My only major concern at first glance is that the first half of this trailer seems to be pushing the role of Jake, the young boy, as though he were the 'main' or 'point of view' character.  This would be more in line with films adapted from adolescent literature like 'Harry Potter' or 'Divergent', in which case the teens or tweens were the main characters.  I recognize that this is an 'easier path' into the world set in the novels for a general audience, but this simply is not the case for the Dark Tower book series.  I hope they ease off that approach in future trailers and especially in the film itself.  Roland, the Gunslinger, IS the main character.  Part of the allure of the books was immediately being thrown in to his world and being disoriented by that, and then learning little by little the 'rules' and backstory of his world.

  • hazza3

    To me the trailer portrays it as a Forbidden Kingdom, Labrynth, and Gamer kind of movie. Big badass hero and a little white child sidekick to go on an adventure to save the universe. Hopefully the movie captures the true intention of the books of a massive adventure of 'One versus All' with a start and an end, instead of a start and a maybe.

    I always pictured the Gunslinger's world/stories to be much more surreal, less conventional. Different studio than It, but with the Marvel and upcoming Universal Monsters crossovers, I almost wonder if there's going to be an attempt at something similar with King's universe.

    As a big fan of the books I can certainly say it's quite different from what I imagined (very stripped down, which I always loved the books because of their go for broke attiude) but not necessarily bad, so i'm curious if not egarly anticipating this.

    Apart from the very generic art style, the trailer soundtrack (the musical pocket watch part) is trying miserably to inject the atmosphere of "For a Few Dollars More" by simply copying the theme from that movie. Not a good start at all!

  • Per VIdar Gornitzka Anfinnsen

    After Dallas Buyers Club and Interstellar, I can't fathom people not being able to see Mathew McConaghey as a big screen actor. He's a genius. So's Idris Elba. Who, yes, has done a lot of television. But the caliber of acting that they both show, far exceeds any reasonable doubt.

    I don't mind Idris in this role at all...  I actually never finished reading the series...I only read the first three books and not the other two (plus there is addendum book now out as well)  ..I will have to revisit that world in book form ... personally I agree with the stakes are high mentally  in wanting to get that "feeling" in a movie but I don't think using CGI  & big bucks gimmicks is the way to do that all the time...  some movie sacrifice the story and good character development by instead focusing on the action...this story needs to be perfectly balanced to work I think.... we shall see

    Sorry Grace, but this does NOT look excellent! This is an action movie and has a completely wrong tone and style compared to the books. Jake doesn't do one liners (that's Eddie's job). Look to American Gods for the right feel and correct handling of material! It needs grit, surrealism, horror, melancholy and depth. I really love the books and watching this trailer is cringe worthy. No issue with the cast, just the god awful direction and writing. I wonder how Steven King really feels to have his pet project mutilated like this? I feel like the books were not respected during the making of this movie on an Avatar the Last Airbender level. What a pity.
