After years of stops and starts, The Dark Tower movie is finally going to happen, and there’s a trailer to prove it. My initial reaction is that it doesn’t really feel like Stephen King—it feels very Hollywood with its fancy gunplay and cheesy dialogue.
That having been said, it’s important to keep in mind that this isn’t a direct adaptation of the books. My guess is that many King fans won’t be 100% pleased with what they see so far.
The Dark Tower hits theaters on August 4 2017.
