Trivia

Was originally to be adapted to film by J.J. Abrams following his success with the Lost (2004) television series. After Abrams backed out, Ron Howard became attached to the project until the rights went to Nikolaj Arcel. See more »

Goofs

Understanding that this is a fantasy story and that Roland's pistols are somewhat magic there is a bit of a glitch here. The pistols are based on the Remington 1858 army model and, as such, should be single action pistols meaning that the person firing them would have to cock the hammer manually each time they're fired. Roland operates these pistols as double action pistols (never manually cocks the hammer) throughout the movie firing them one handed. See more »

I just love this movie
17 August 2017 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Since when we judge movies based on books! Those two are totally different experiences. I absolutely loved this movie. Simply, one of my favorites this summer and I would never ever listen to critics again. I went to watch other movies based on reviews and left Dark Tower till the end and man I wish I watched Dark Tower first. I simply can't wait till the next one. I hope there will be more than one!
