"The Dark Tower" movie could have fascinated fans because of its extraordinary story but due to unprecedented situations, the adaption of Stephen King's novels was delayed for the fourth time. The much-anticipated movie is now scheduled to hit theaters on August 4, 2017.
The film was originally slated to release on January 13. It was then pushed back to February 17 and to July 28. Slash Film has learned that footages shown on CinemaCon didn't look like it was near to finish. It may have some visual effects but no trailer released yet compared to other Stephen King's adaptation which already has a trailer.
The July 28 spot was filled in by "The Emoji Movie" and that "The Dark Tower" movie will no longer be pushed back again. Sources said that the latest transition was to provide more time for the students to enjoy movies before the school opens. Besides, an upcoming trailer for "The Dark Tower" is just around the corner.
