The Dark Tower gets moved back again… but not too much this time

April 1st, 2017 by Marc Comments

While we all got excited for the IT trailer a few days ago (and we weren’t alone as it has broken records with almost 200million views in the first 24 hours), we were also wondering… where the heck is The Dark Tower trailer?!

Well, still no sign of it yet (although we love the new poster above) and now we’ve learned that the movie has been delayed another week from July 28th to August 4th, having already been moved from its original release of February 17th this year.

Why? Well, the movie has simply swopped dates with The Emoji Movie which Sony wants to have “more summertime play”.

We’re assured this will be the las move for The Dark Tower and we certainly hope this is the case because we’ve already waited almost 30 years… and we can’t take any more!

The Dark Tower is being directed by Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair) and stars Idris Elba (Luther) as Roland Deschain, Matthew McConaughey (Interstellar) as the Man in Black, Tom Taylor (Doctor Foster) as Jake Chambers, Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road) as Tirana, Fran Kranz (The Cabin in the Woods) as Pimli, Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen) as Richard Sayre, Michael Barbieri (Little Men) as Timmy, Claudia Kim (Avengers: Age of Ultron) as Arra Champignon and Katheryn Winnick (Vikings) as Laurie Chambers.

It will be released on August 4th, 2017.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
