Much fuss has been made about how little publicity there's been for the flick, with Sony only releasing a trailer, a few posters, and some TV spots.
I find this approach a breath of fresh air, as back when I was a boy, movies got a trailer three months from release, a poster or two, and some TV and radio commercials. That's it.
Ahhh, the good-old days. When we weren't spoon fed everything about a movie before it came out!
Suffice to say, I'm happy with the amount of publicity The Dark Tower has received so far. Surprise: it actually makes me want to see it more!
That being said, there's a new international trailer for Nikolaj Arcel's film, featuring a little more footage of Idris Elba as Roland, and Matthew McConaughey as his nemesis, The Man in Black. I'm not going to bore you with the details. Just give it a watch:
I still like what I see, and am just as pumped, if not more so, for The Dark Tower's Aug. 4 release. How about you, Basementites?
PS: There's also only been one trailer for that other Stephen King adaptation, It, and It comes out in two months, for the record. Yes, I want to see It as well. See what I did there? Good.
