The Dark Tower Is Getting Toppled By Critics! See The Vicious Review Roundup!

no title

We didn't expect The Dark Tower to be Shakespeare (or even Captain America), but one of the worst reviewed movies of the year??

Yep, as of this writing the movie sits at a sad 16% on Rotten Tomatoes, something that probably shouldn't be too much of a surprise given reviews were embargoed until the day it came out.

But even the kind reviews are so half-hearted, it sounds like the Stephen King adaptation is a movie for NO ONE.

The saddest part is, the books have been coming out for decades, and an adaptation has been in some form of development for about 15 years. And after all that time… eesh.

Too bad for Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey, too. Because they sure are doing their part being adorable to sell it!

Ch-ch-check out the TERRIBLE responses in our review roundup (below):

This grape-colored suit is the jam!

Matthew McConaughey and his stunning wife Camila Alves hit up The Dark Tower premiere in New York on Monday night looking completely flaw-free.

The movie hunk chose a purple suit that really made his light eyes pop. We love color and risk!

Meanwhile, his better half stunned in a floor sweeping patterned Georges Chakra Couture beauty. Camila's glam was also perfectly smokey.

What do YOU think of this pair? SOUND OFF in the comments (below)!

Idris Elba & Matthew McConaughey Face Off In First Trailer For The Dark Tower — And Stephen King Fans Are Divided!

The Dark Tower wasn't shot with a camera, it was shot with heart.

Still, fans of the Stephen King dark fantasy series were teetering between delight and disappointment after the first epic trailer dropped on Wednesday!

The gritty trailer features Idris Elba as trigger-happy vigilante The Gunslinger and Matthew McConaughey as the sinister Man in Black.

King already revealed the film would deviate from the plot of the first 1982 book and mostly take place in the modern world, but assured fans would still "get behind it, because it is the story."

Welp, the novelist wasn't totally right about that — some fans were not feeling alterations like eye color (gasp!), cinematic grittiness (the horror!), and the Man in Black's sudden southern twang (Leave McConaughey alone!).

What are YOUR thoughts, Perezious Readers? Check the trailer (above) and see what the Twitics had to say (below)!

Idris Elba Will Face Matthew McConaughey In The Most EPIC Stephen King Adaptation Ever! Get The New Deets On The Dark Tower Movie!

no title

Stephen King fans have been blessed (and cursed) with dozens of film adaptations of his work over the years.

But after many attempts, the author's long-running book series The Dark Tower will finally see life on the big screen!

The eight novel sci-fi/fantasy series, which King regards as one of his magnum opus, follows a gunslinger on his quest to find a fabled Dark Tower — but things get WAY complicated, as he meets many of King's other characters from different worlds along the way.

And it looks like this film already boasts quite the cast — Idris Elba has finally been confirmed to be playing the hero Gunslinger and Matthew McConaughey is playing the mysterious Man in Black!

King admitted he is "a little bit surprised" that the film is finally in production, as the first novel in the series was published way back in 1982! Speaking to EW, he said:

WB Passes On Stephen King Franchise, Dark Tower Project May Come Crumbling Down

stephen-king-russell-crowe-the-dark-tower-warner-bros-passes-mrc-ted-elysium-last-hope-hbo-glee

Help us, MRC! You're our only hope!

It's a sad day for Stephen King, his Dark Tower series, and potential gunslinger Russell Crowe!

Warner Bros — a studio with many sound stages to fill after Harry Potter and Batman franchises closed shop — just passed on adapting eight ah-mazing novels that could give them a decade of sweet films!!

Nooooo!!!

Akiva Goldsman wrote a supposedly sweet script for part one, The Gunslinger, and we thought this would become the epic franchise to end all epic franchises!

The trajectory here included not only a

Russell Crowe May Replace Javier Bardem In The Dark Tower

Russell Crowe may star in The Dark Tower movies

We had no problem with Javier Bardem playing gunslinger Roland Deschain in the adaptation of Stephen Kings' series, The Dark Tower, but Russell Crowe might be even better!

The thespian is no stranger to killing people on screen and looks good in a cowboy hat. In fact, the trailer for RZA's kung fu epic, The Man With The Iron Fist, puts Crowe's credentials for the covetted role on full display.

He is reportedly in talks to

Another Stephen King Adaptation In The Works!

Filed under: Film FlickersBookz

rose madder adaptation in the works

Stephen King is on a roll! (as if he ever isn't)

Between Bag of Bones, Under the Dome, and The Dark Tower, LOTS of King adaptations are in the works!

Now, we've learned that Palomar Pictures and Grosvenor Park have teamed up for a few new projects, including a film adaptation of Stephen King's 1995 novel Rose Madder.

Rose has been adapted by In America writer Naomi Sheridan, and the story is "based on a woman who's on the run from her abusive husband and is able to travel into a painting."

Sounds intense! We'll definitely check that one out…as well as the seven-hundred other King movies/TV shows in the works! Ha!
