a detour to the Dark Tower’s door

it seems Roland’s journey towards The Dark Tower has taken a bit of a detour. originally slated for release on February 17, 2017, the once-unfilmmable story is being shifted to a Summer 2017 opening, largely due to requiring extensions on special effects. a rough-cut trailer leaked last month, but Sony yanked it immediately before things got too out of hand on the Internet. even though i’ve waited waaaaaay too long for this movie to finally see the light of day, i actually feel it makes more sense to promote it as a summer blockbuster…because the majority of the US (save for those few states who are blessed with mild-to-non-existent winters) will unlikely be going out to the movies (or much of anywhere else, for that matter) in February.
