An ancient curse, and a killer, are contained inside an old dark mansion.
When the first trailer came out of The Dark Tower the net was all a buzz as sightings of Pennywise and a few other King staples were sighted throught its run time. Well, today we get a look at a little clip that highlights ALL the references to Kings little world. Have a look and see how many you can find. There are a lot of them!
“There are other worlds than these. Stephen King’s The Dark Tower, the ambitious and expansive story from one of the world’s most celebrated authors, makes its launch to the big screen. The last Gunslinger, Roland Deschain (Idris Elba), has been locked in an eternal battle with Walter O’Dim, also known as the Man in Black (Matthew McConaughey), determined to prevent him from toppling the Dark Tower, which holds the universe together. With the fate of the worlds at stake, good and evil will collide in the ultimate battle as only Roland can defend the Tower from the Man in Black.”
Idris Elba, Matthew McConaughey, Tom Taylor, Fran Kranz, Jackie Earle Haley, Katheryn Winnick, and Abbey Lee are the stars and Nikolaj Arcel directs.
As the teaser states – August 4th the quest begins.
Michael Pare – for my generation he was Eddie from Eddie and the Cruisers – personally, I liked him in Streets of Fire as well but for quite a while – he has been largely quiet. That is about to change.
John Fallon – who most of you will likely recognize for horror news site Arrow In The Head directed a film titled The Shelter and he has had it out on the festival circuit for a while now but the time has come to get it into the hands of horror fans everywhere and that issue has been resolved. Uncork’d Entertainment has picked up the rights and is giving the film a small theatrical run but most of us will likely be able to catch it on VOD. Before we get into those details though – let’s have a look at that new trailer – shall we?
If the pretty moving pictures didn’t give you enough of a hint of the storyline of this one – here it is all written out for you:
“Vagrant Thomas Jacob (Michael Paré of “Eddie and the Cruisers” fame) finds shelter for the night when he falls upon a seemingly abandoned two-story home with its lights on and an inviting front door. Once inside, his past comes to haunt him and he soon realizes that he is not alone. There’s a supernatural force on hand and it won’t let him leave. Destiny has brought Thomas to this place but will he survive the ordeal?”
Starring alongside Mr. Pare is Gayle James, Rachel Whittle, Lauren Thomas, Daena Turner, and Amy Wickenheiser.
That theatrical and VOD rollout will be on Nov. 4th and for those of you who wish to own it – well you’re waiting till Jan. 3rd for the DVD rollout.
Have a look at the new eye candy!
Well, that didn’t take long. Was just a week or so ago I gave you a look at that creepy poster art for the latest from Marcus Dunstan and today brings something even cooler – a trailer! Titled The Neighbor – the film stars Josh Stewart, Bill Engvall and Alex Essoe the tale goes as follows:
“The Neighbor takes place in the small town of Cutter, Mississippi, where most people keep to themselves. But when John (Josh Stewart) comes home to find his girlfriend Rosie (Alex Essoe) missing, he suspects his mysterious and off-putting neighbor (Bill Engvall) is somehow involved. John learns that Rosie’s life is not all that is at stake after a visit to his neighbor’s cellar. It becomes clear that the seemingly quiet town is more dangerous than it looks, and John and Rosie must do more than just run away if they want to survive the night.”
