'The Dark Tower': What you see is what you get

The Dark Tower Box Office

The pair are a familiar mismatched companion duo, which provides for some of the film's best comedic beats, who - however briefly - find real common ground in the deaths of their fathers. "You kill with your heart".

Done in a brisk 90 minute running time, the movie feels like a bunch of scenes cobbled together.

"The Dark Tower" is about a young boy who discovers a place called the Mid-World.

We've been here many times, in the "Harry Potter" books and "Star Wars" movies, via Narnia and Middle-earth, and all the way back to Arthurian romances and beyond. Likely it was days filled with Sony Pictures head Tom Rothman standing over the editor screaming, "IS IT DONE YET?" Meanwhile, The Dark Tower movie, which stars Elba and Matthew McConaughey as Roland and the Man in Black, respectively, opens in theaters tomorrow, August 4. Seriously, that's all I know about it. While the short runtime makes certain The Dark Tower doesn't linger too long on exposition, instead largely revealing bits of information through flashback or short expository exchanges, it also prevents the movie from digging deep into the world's mythology and the characters' histories. Roland, upon hearing of Jake's dreams, seeks the assistance of a seer to interpret Jake's drawings, as they may lead him to Walter.

Stephen King wrote The Dark Tower over the course of 30 years from 1982 until 2012.

Although the story claims that "when Arcel delivered an early cut of the picture that alarmed Wiczyk and Rothman, they considered bringing in a more experienced filmmaker to recut it", both men deny the allegation. The audience learns the lore as Jake progresses through the story.

But she dropped the posturing when she showed up for court in Florida , her home state, on Tuesday, accompanied by her mother. She conceded awesome robbery, great burglary auto, ownership of cannabis and documenting a false report in a hearing in June.

Spanning multiple genres and fantastical worlds, the King classic is an eight-part saga that began life in 1982 with The Gunslinger, and after years of false starts and scrapped plans, we're now teetering on the edge of Sony's big-budget adaptation.

About halfway through the movie, Jack discovers that he shines, which means he has psychic abilities.

With the vast amount of events in King's multi-novel series, the TV series will be the flawless way to adhere to the scenes long-time fans would dream to see on screen. King's Constant Readers will also get a kick at some of the subtle (and not-so-subtle) references to his other works.

"Levi's another name for Matthew in the bible", the "Dark Tower" actor said on "Good Morning America". Wouldn't it have made more sense to go with that?

McConaughey and Elba are the reasons the movie succeeds as well as it does because the movie truly is fun. They are the ones who can't wait to see this!

The feature film adaptation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower will arrive in hitting theaters this weekend, though translating the story from page to screen has allegedly been an arduous experience. The added problem with this one, however, is it's nowhere near close to being as good a standalone movie as most of those others.
