Last fall, Sony supposedly tried to launch the trailer for the highly-anticipated film version of The Dark Tower. Fans expected the launch during Entertainment Weekly’s first yearly PopFest. The launch never happened, despite an unfinished version of the trailer leaking online. With only five months left until the movie’s release in July, it appears that the first trailer will soon be posted.
The Dark Tower 2017 trailer coming soon
There are reports that the trailer will arrive anytime, although there is no official date given yet. However, the news should not disappoint fans since the film’s soundtrack has finally arrived on Spotify. The music is the same from the one used in the leaked The Dark Tower trailer. This led fans to think that the trailer’s launch is just around the corner.
A Birth.Movies.Death reader alerted the site about a new single by L’Orchestra Cinematique entitled Behind Blue Eyes. The song was a cover of The Who’s classic song of the same name. The accompanying artwork revealed that the song came from The Dark Tower trailer. Behind Blue Eyes is the exact same music connected to the leaked trailer in October.
A couple of weeks after the leak, Sony Pictures pushed The Dark Tower release date from February 17 to July 28 of 2017. The decision gave the filmmakers more time to finish the effects and the rest of post-production. The film was initially slated to take on The Great Wall, A Cure For Wellness and Fist Fight on February 17. With the new launch date, it will compete against Focus Features’ The Coldest City and Paramount’s documentary An Inconvenient Sequel, a follow-up to the critically-acclaimed An Inconvenient Truth.
The Dark Tower 2017 will have a TV series
The initial plan was to release a film trilogy. NBC was to air two seasons of a restricted TV series in between the movies to flesh out the world from Stephen King’s novels. When the project moved to Sony, the studio teamed up with Media Rights Capital to co-finance both the trilogy and the series.
Unfortunately, fans have not heard much about the TV show ever since. Ron Howard teased in an interview last September that the project is still in development. Howard added that he does not know which TV network the series would land.
