I don’t remember it ever being mentioned what color the Gunslinger Roland is. I guess we just tend to assume he’s white because that’s what color most cowboy heroes were in oldschool movies and such. Idris Elba? No problem! I would just want the movie to be good.

It’s kind of a shame, really, because I think there really could be a market for Weird West films. Straight-up Westerns are pretty much dead. They dominated Hollywood from very early on and only started to die out in the 70s. They were cheap, easy to make, and they carried a lot of cultural resonance with pre- and post-War Americans. To do a Western of any kind today, you really need something to set it apart. And that’s where Weird West comes in: Weird West is any combination of the traditional Western with any kind of speculative genre, be it… Read more »

I was hoping this would be good but unfortunately they seemed to make it pretty generic, more like a young adult movie then a proper Dark Tower adaption. I think they should have made a more direct adaptation.
