The movie based on King’s The Dark Tower novel series did not do well. It did not do well at all. Also, it was pretty bad. But the TV series maybe, maybe has a chance at seeing the light of day. If it happens, though, it won’t be following up on the movie.
Successful Stephen King adaptations are everywhere right now—but one that didn’t stick its landing is The Dark Tower. Both at the movies and on TV, the future of The Dark Tower series is in up in the air. However, King recently gave fans a glimmer of hope that the story could continue on the page.
I mean, when you’re pitching yourself as being “From the Mind of Stephen King,” you damn well better have a small slice of Americana hiding some messed up stuff. But Castle Rock’s own take on a classic King trope looks as starkly gorgeous as it does creepy.
Everyone expected It to be a hit, but no one guessed just how big a hit It would be. The adaptation of the Stephen King novel had the largest opening ever for a horror movie ever and continued its momentum into this past weekend, crossing $200 million. We talked to the film’s director and producer duo, Andy and…
As horror and scifi fans well know, John Carpenter isn’t just the director of genre classics like Halloween and Escape from New York—he’s also a killer musician who has created some of the most memorable movie scores ever. With that in mind, he’s shot a brand-new video for his theme to 1983's Christine.
Stephen King’s words have been made into dozens of movies—and, after It’s blockbuster success, most people assumed that even more would get the big-screen treatment. They just couldn’t have guessed it would happen so quickly.
There was always going to be a second chapter to the cinematic reboot of Stephen King’s It. Not necessarily a sequel, but rather a continuation of the story of the Losers Club, after they first defeat Pennywise and go on to become adults.
Stephen King’s It is an upsetting novel. Sometimes for the wrong reasons. Most notably, there’s the icky and inexplicable sex scene between the boys of the Loser’s Club and their one female cohort, Bev. It’s a gross, gross scene, and a lot of people hate it, which means it gets brought up every time It gets discussed.
It’s been a long time coming to theaters, but It turns out to have been worth the wait. The cinematic adaptation of what is arguably Stephen King’s most famous novel is absolutely an excellent horror film, but its real success is how it exceeds just horror—it’s dramatic, funny, and, most impressively, has way more…
Early buzz for the new adaptation of Stephen King’s It is good. Really good, in fact, and if you can’t stand to wait any longer you can at least view this oddly atmospheric behind-the-scenes footage in the meantime.
The film adaptation of Stephen King’s It doesn’t open until September 8, but the first reactions are pouring in on social media, and they are very positive.
The It teaser broke the internet, and the first trailer was equally scary. Now, the much-anticipated Stephen King adaptation has released another horrific peek, and this time it’s interactive. IT: FLOAT—A Cinematic VR Experience allows you to peer around inside the sewer, where Pennywise the Clown eagerly awaits.
Hollywood and Vine is one of the most famous intersections in the world. It’s a place packed with crazy Los Angeles characters, but even Hollywood and Vine doesn’t feel ready for Pennywise. From now until September 10, the corner sports a terrifying addition: the Neibolt Street house from It.
One of the key ideas in making a Dark Tower movie was to distinguish it from the books. It wasn’t supposed to be a straight adaptation of the novels, but the next version of the story—a simultaneous sequel/reboot using the mythology of the novels to tell a new version of the story. This sounded like a great idea...…
Pennywise’s variety of creepy clownery is coming back to screens with the new adaptation of Stephen King’s IT this September 8th. And when the planned two film series is finished, director Andy Muschietti, along with his sister and creative partner Barbara, know exactly which King story they want to tackle next.
The biggest problem with The Dark Tower movie is that when it ends, you don’t feel the need to see more. Unlike the epic books that inspired it, the movie is streamlined to be one complete story. Hypothetically, this should be a good thing. But with The Dark Tower, that process removes any gravitas needed to make us…
Well, this might be the answer we’ve been looking for. Variety has a story detailing the issues that The Dark Tower movie has run into. It’s an interesting read, but the detail that sticks out the most is that three separate entities apparently had some form of veto power over the film.
Stephen King is the undisputed master of horror. He’s an incredibly prolific writer, penning over 56 books under his own name alone, and is one of the most adapted authors alive, with over 120 adaptations of his books, scripts, and short stories on film and television. In those thousands of pages, there have been more…
The first trailer for It was one of the scariest movie trailers in recent memory. Now, a new trailer is online and while it loses a bit of that shocking surprise, it makes up for it with plenty of tension, lots of new footage, and more looks at the evil clown Pennywise, who is simply terrifying.
A new Dark Tower promo video was just released. It’s called “Connected KINGdom,” and points out that The Dark Tower is the center of a Stephen King universe that includes various other stories, many of which became very well-regarded films themselves. What does it fail to talk much about? The Dark Tower.
