Today, after a decade of development hell and 35 years of reading, the first trailer for the long-awaited The Dark Tower film finally arrived. It's less than three minutes of actual footage, but it's the first really meaty glimpse of the film we've had.
So let's pick it apart as much as possible.
Below, I've gathered more than 20 of the most important moments from the trailer, including powerful visuals, callbacks to the novels, Stephen King Easter eggs and more. Since the film serves as a kind of sequel to King's original series, we can't predict everything, but we can see the similarities, feel the mythology beginning to build and look for exciting variations.
So have a look at the trailer one more time, and then let's get to it.
