Well, I did watch it...barely did it. I liked it a lot even though it was missing video and sound effects. It got me really excited and now I can't wait for its final release. The title of it seemed to entertain that it was meant to be the first international draft version.

Regarding the story, it does seem like a second turn around...but we all knew that this is a sort of sequel, right?

Just awesome, can't wait....

I liked it a lot too. My favourite bit is where the gunslinger shoots repeatedly in the air directly above him. It looks very action-packed. I didn't see billy-bumblers though - maybe they're not in the trailer, or still had to be added or won't be in the movies at all. I really hope they will be in the movie(s). They seem ideal to make a connection with the audience - if they don't get handled TOO cute, but rather as unique creatures are handled in something like Star Wars. Although they have to be CGI and good CGI is expensive.

But I can't wait to see it in the cinema. I hope it will make cinemas here, as Cell and A Good Marriage didn't. But I think because it's from Sony and an expensive production it probably will.
I wonder what the length will be, but I'm guessing around two hours. Films closer to three hours are still the exception and only certain directors and franchises get those.

I managed to see it before it was pulled. It looks good. Damn good. The scene with Roland firing his guns was a real thrill, and when he recites bits of the Gunslinger's Creed at the end: "I kill with my heart." Oh man! :m_excited:

The killjoys can say all the crap they want, but whatever other qualms they may have for this film, I am confident that Idris will absolutely nail it as Roland Deschain.

I tried to post a link here to free downloads of all Stephens audio books on a file sharing website once, that was surely a no no. :laugh: When I realized they were actually ripping Stephen off, I became a tattle tale shortly thereafter and call them out but its all almost always out there, somewhere, by someone.

I remember. ;-D

As they find them, Sony is issuing take-down notices for the sites that still have the trailer. It becomes a game of whack-a-mole with these things, though.

Had to delete the link. They do not want this available.

Yeah, I kinda expected that.

The whole business of leaks always rather puzzles me. Is it a matter of people working on a film leaking it, or do people actually manage to hack into computers of the studios? Or both perhaps? I would imagine the security of studios being real high, still these leaks always happen...

Guys, for the record: the trailer was an unfinished one, meaning the lighting and effects were not in place as yet. When it's done, we'll be in for a treat.

I can't believe I missed it! From comments it seems like it was really great! I hope that this novel gets the "Marvel" treatment it deserves. Marvel Comics has done a great job with their movies and Netflix series and making sure that they all tie in together. I hope this movie and the planned TV series does the same thing.

Thus far, I've not been satisfied with the T.V shows Under the Dome or Haven.
