As a life long fan of Steven King, until some of his books started scaring the crap out of me and I chose to get into History and Politics, by watching the video below and the reviews, it’s clear he still has his game.
Should you decide to go to the movies and watch it, bring a crash helmet and a seat belt, as you will likely need both.
The movie promises to be a fast-paced wild ride.
Stephen King Has Seen Dark Tower, What Does He Think?
Asking King what he thought of the trailer, his reaction was simple.
“I thought it was fantastic.”
He elaborated, “Fans of the books are going to be delighted to finally see Roland and Jake on screen, not to mention Walter, the Man in Black.”
Expanding on that, I asked him what he thought of seeing two of our most talented actors portraying these characters that he created so long ago.
“It was great to see Idris Elba as Roland.
He has terrific focus and tremendous energy as Roland. Mathew McConaughey is very scary and very intense as Walter. I love that right away you set up the tension between the two of them.”
The Dark Tower director Nikolaj Arcel recently did an interview with IGN where he revealed that Stephen King is happy with the way that the movie turned out despite it being different from his original novel.
The big screen adaptation has been in development for years and Stephen King has warned long-time fans of the book series that the movie will be different in a lot of ways, almost as if he’s trying to set the precedent, to front-load the audience, but this is the first that we have heard in regards to the author being satisfied with the long awaited The Dark Tower movie.
