Live-action Alita: Battle Angel trailer has finally been unveiled!

So it's finally here! Proof that the ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL film is actually happening! Based on the popular manga, this has been James Cameron 's passion project for what feels like hundreds of years. He kept talking about it - how he's been developing technology for it, how state-of-the-art it will be. Hell, you'd almost be fooled into thinking he was building a real female cyborg...

The Dark Tower TV series may no longer be connected to film

I haven't seen THE DARK TOWER yet, but I thought it looked pretty cool.  Now, admittedly, I haven't read the books yet (shame, I know), so I can understand die-hard fans being disappointed that their expansive and unique fantasy epic got turned into a simple action story. However, like I told a colleague just today, " I love me some Idris Elba , as well as watching...

Jake Chambers meets the Gunslinger in ten-minute clip from The Dark Tower

For a while there, I felt fairly confident that THE DARK TOWER would reign supreme as 2017's best Stephen King project, after all, Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey headlining a potential franchise based upon King's much-celebrated series? It seemed like a no-brainer, but, when the dust settled, Andy Muschietti 's IT wound up being the film to blow everyone away and...

Stephen King addresses challenges of making Dark Tower

While IT is doing gangbusters (clownbusters?) at the box office, moviegoers have already forgotten about the flop that was THE DARK TOWER. Fans had been waiting for the adaptation of Stephen King ’s massive fantasy series, and what they got was 90 minutes of Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey trying to patch up a sinking tugboat.

The Dark Tower TV series' fate might be based on a survey

So THE DARK TOWER did not reach the financial expectations Sony was gunning for. They were hoping they had a new LORD OF THE RINGS on their hands (as THE DARK TOWER is Stephen King 's big fantasy epic series), but instead got a mediocre, YA-esque dud that squandered an awesome Idris Elba performance. And this all puts the proposed DARK TOWER TV series in jeopardy. If no one...

At the moment I'm writing this, THE DARK TOWER is currently sitting at 19% on Rotten Tomatoes , which, considering how long fans have been waiting to see Stephen King 's epic released on the big-screen, is a far cry from the reception we were hoping that it would get. With an incredible amount of story left untold, it was the hope that THE DARK TOWER would be the first of a...
