Today, Columbia finally released the first trailer for their adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower!
I love the idea of Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey playing rivals but, in all honesty, this trailer … well, I don’t know how I feel about this trailer. Watching it, I found myself flashing back to watching both Tomorrowland and Prisoners of the Lost Universe. (No, that’s not a good thing.) Columbia is advertising this with “In a world of superheroes, there is only one gunslinger” but, to be honest, this could just as easily be a trailer for the latest entry in either the MCU or the Superman Kills People saga.
That said, trailers are often the worst way to guess what a movie is going to be like and I still hope The Dark Tower is good!
(By the way, the comments section underneath the trailer on YouTube is really annoying. Yes, Roland’s black. Yes, the Man in Black is white. Get over it.)
