Stephen King’s The Dark Tower is starting to pick up steam with the release of three new trailers for the upcoming epic fantasy film based on the book series. If there is one thing that Stephen King really loves and that fans of his enjoy as well, that’s great cinema based off his stories that he first immortalized in print so many years ago.
“Vintage horror fiction!”
This set of new trailers released for The Dark Tower just goes to show that the movie itself is long overdue and fans of Stephen King have really waited long enough for this release.
The Dark Tower starts what is expected to be a series of films based off the Stephen King book series of the same name. Although the subsequent films in The Dark Tower series have not been officially confirmed yet, it is likely that Sony is waiting to see how well the first film does before it commits to high-end budgets on the sequels.

Stephen King is perhaps the most adapted author in the world by now. He has written over 50 novels and numerous shorts stories. All of his novels have been best sellers and dozens of them have been transcribed for the big screen as well as TV. There have also been comic book adaptations of Stephen King’s work as well.
Fans of Stephen King and The Dark Tower will not have to wait very long for this film to finally get a release in the United States. As with many big budget summer blockbusters, The Dark Tower will hit theaters just before school starts, on August 4.
