I'll keep my fingers crossed, but, the trailer is quite tempting as have others been and then so disappointed.
I am definitely interested in seeing it. The story is interesting, Idris and Matthew put 110% into whatever roles they do. The movie will surely be edited compared to the books. Its just the nature of the business.

Cujo, Pet Semetary and Christine were films that were done well I think. King novels are detailed and give so many multiple point of views you go INTO the story as opposed to reading it. For example-The Stand. Each death early on was experienced in such detail I was actually tired after reading it. Especially the "pokerizing" involving the duct tape suffocation.

Films like these may do well and capture the moment visually, but face the challange of the visceral experience in most cases.

I guess I'm in the minority. I think the trailer looks awful, has the feel of an ABC Sunday night movie from the 90s.

I think it looks fresh and creative compared to the endless parade of superhero movies and remakes.

I, of course agree with your assessment.

Its adapted from a book, not really what I would consider a fresh idea.

Lots of books draw inspiration from outside sources nothing is truly original if you really want to get down to it. However the reason I say it looks fresh is there has never been a Dark Tower film.

I'm very much looking forward to this Adaptation of the Dark Tower series I've much enjoyed reading.

I don't expect it to be anything like the books as this is all taking place after the horn of Arthur Eld was blown..
This is a different level of the tower entirely.

There is much opposition to this movie from a lot of Dark tower purists because Roland is Black.
I'm looking forward to a fresh view on things and believe it will be interesting to see where this goes..

I have not forgotten the face of my Father!!

The trailers I'm seeing on my TV look vastly different from the ones displayed on youtube via my pc monitor and from what I viewed on my TV, I am not happy, it did have the look of a made for TV from the 90's or earlier to it. I think this is going to be a bust. I'll wait for the video if I don't see it at the $2.50 movie theater. Oh well.

The nicest thing I have seen in reviews about this movie: "It's not as bad as the Emoji Movie."
