In a recent Soapbox article on The Dark Tower, I promised I would do a spoiler-free follow up post for fans new to the series, and with the release of this month’s Live From The Pop Culture Studio video, I’ve kept that promise.
As you’d expect from the title, “Everything You Need to Know About The Dark Tower” features all the information you need to know about Stephen King’s epic novels, in the lead up to the 2017 big screen adaptation starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey, without spoiling any of the surprises contained in either the books or film.
While Constant Readers of King’s series may grumble that I’ve simplified things too much, let me reiterate: this video was designed for newbies.
My hope is that if you were on the fence over whether or not to read the Dark Tower books, watching this video will make you take the plunge, or if you’re a fan of Elba or McConaughey (or both) but aren’t sure if the movie is for you, it’ll help you decide to give it a go.
