Sohel Islam | 5 comments Okay, so I was just looking at The Dark Tower trailer. I love the casting but based on the trailer, it seems as if it's a generic action movie with bare elements of the series.
Am I the only one who is disappointed with the trailers?

I wouldn't say I was completely disappointed. His recital of the litany brought me chills. Same with his loading of the guns.

Lonne (lonnster) | 17 comments I was disappointed at first.. but I'm still way too excited for the movie. I think we'll have to wait and see

Erin (ems84) | 2087 comments I thought the trailer looked good. I know it comes off as an action movie but I am hoping the movie will be more then that.

This. Those parts of the trailer were incredible and made me very, very excited.

But I do see "The Last Action Hero" all in that trailer. I'm not surprised - how do you turn a magus opus into a single movie? Plus Idris Elba can read me a To-Do list and I'd be all there for that.

I think those guns should have been bigger and I know we shouldn't judge the movie based on the trailer but I feel like that they are going to go for style over substance, focusing mostly on action and very little on charachter development

I think they will make a sequel if this one makes enough money. Another thing that really bothered me is the depiction of the Tower. It is so much more than as described in the trailers

I was thinking they would make a sequel but...they didn't leave a lot of room for one (from what I've seen). It would have been best if they started from the beginning as the series was created but...Hollywood.

Jessica | 52 comments The rumors I had read was that this movie was meant to lead into additional movies and/or a TV series on a network like HBO or Showtime. Nothing has been confirmed that I have heard, but I'm still hopeful, as this movie only looks like it touches on a small part of the series.

Deb Storey (debstorey) | 14 comments I think a tv series would probably work very well with these books and meanwhile I am so looking forward to the movie!

I would love it if this series went HBO and got the GOT treatment.

mrbooks | 1469 comments Yes the movie as a taster and a well rounded TV series would be fantastic. Looking forward to the movie and keeping my fingers crossed for a series.
