Trivia

Several of Stephen King's other novels are connected to the Dark Tower series, and some of them have been adapted into films. They have all featured actors from the various Star Trek series. The earliest novel with such a connection was Salem's Lot. The first film adaptation featured Julie Cobb, who appeared in the original Star Trek series. The 2003 remake featured Cobb's former husband, James Cromwell, who played the crossover character Father Callahan, and had appeared in Star Trek: First Contact (1996). The Stand (1994) featured Ray Walston, who appeared on an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987); and Miguel Ferrer, who appeared in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (1984). Hearts in Atlantis (2001) featured Anton Yelchin, whose final film role was in Star Trek Beyond (2016), opposite Idris Elba. See more »

Goofs

Understanding that this is a fantasy story and that Roland's pistols are somewhat magic there is a bit of a glitch here. The pistols are based on the Remington 1858 army model and, as such, should be single action pistols meaning that the person firing them would have to cock the hammer manually each time they're fired. Roland operates these pistols as double action pistols (never manually cocks the hammer) throughout the movie firing them one handed. See more »

Surprisingly Excellent!
4 August 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jake Chambers is an 11-year-old adventure seeker who discovers clues about another dimension called Mid-World. Upon following the mystery, he is spirited away to Mid-World where he encounters a Gunslinger, Roland Deschain, who is on a quest to reach the "Dark Tower" that resides in End-World and reach the nexus point between time and space that he hopes will save all existence from extinction. But with various monsters and a vicious sorcerer named Walter o'Dim, the Man in Black hot on their trail, the unlikely duo find that their quest may be difficult to complete.

In North America, The Dark Tower was released alongside Kidnap, as well as the wide expansion of Detroit, and is projected to gross around $20 million from 3,451 theaters in its opening weekend. It made $1.8 million from Thursday previews at 2,770 theaters, which began playing at 7:19 P.M. as an ode to the 19:19 of Stephen King lore present in the book series.

Some people were forcing me not to see it,but I saw this film and surprisingly found it excellent.
