If you’re planning to see Idris Elba as Roland, finish it.
The first glimpse of Idris Elba and Tom Taylor in action on 'The Dark Tower'.
The full trailer for Stephen King's 'The Dark Tower' has finally been unveiled, seeing Idris Elba, Matthew Mcconaughey and Tom Taylor in the lead roles. It's a dark blend of fantasy, sci-fi and traditional western, which is what makes it one of the most exciting films of the year.
Idris Elba and Tom Taylor team up for 'The Dark Tower'
Idris Elba plays the formidable Gunslinger in Nikolaj Arcel's adaptation of Stephen King's best-selling series of novels, with Matthew McConaughey as the evil Man in Black and Tom Taylor as the Gunslinger's unlikely 11-year-old quest partner Jake Chambers.
A series adaptation of Stephen King's 'The Mist' is coming this summer.
Our first look at the forthcoming series adaptation of Stephen King's popular novella 'The Mist' has finally arrived in the form of a gripping trailer for Spike TV. The 10 episode first season is set to air this summer, but this isn't just about a small town grocery store anymore.
'The Mist' comes to Spike TV this June
Created by Danish filmmaker Christian Torpe ('Rita', 'Silent Heart'), who also directs the first episode alongside Adam Bernstein, this new adaptation of 'The Mist' follows the lives of various people within a terror-struck small town. It comes ten years after the critically acclaimed Frank Darabont film adaptation was released starring Marcia Gay Harden, Toby Jones and Thomas Jane.

Here are 7 of the greatest Stephen King film adaptations.
With the release of 'The Dark Tower' imminent, as well as the new trailer for the 'It' reboot making the rounds, it seems that Stephen King is back in fashion. His novels and short stories have always been a source of great interest for filmmakers and TV series creators, so it's always thrilling to see a new adaptation.
Here are just a few of our favourite Stephen King movie adaptations:
Jack Nicholson starred in 'The Shining'
The teaser promises plenty of scares when 'IT' hits theatres later this year.
Stephen King's critically-acclaimed horror novel 'IT' has been terrifying readers for decades now, and despite once getting a small screen live adaptation in 1990, which starred Tim Curry as the creepy clown Pennywise, this year's movie release will serve as the first time 'IT' has hit the movie theatre.
The young cast featuring in Stephen King's 'IT'
This time round, former 'Hemlock Grove' actor Bill Skarsgård will be donning the makeup and handing out the red balloons as Pennywise, luring children to their death and making sure the residents of Derry, Maine don't get much sleep.

Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey star in the adaptation-sequel to 'The Dark Tower'.
The forthcoming adaptation of Stephen King's 'The Dark Tower' series is coming this summer starring Matthew Mcconaughey and Idris Elba, but it's not your regular kind of adaptation. The movie will act as something of a sequel to the book series, with some familiar characters and an all new story.
Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba star in 'The Dark Tower'
We really hope this idea of continuing a novel saga in film catches on - 'Harry Potter' is kind of halfway there. 'The Dark Tower' continues on from events in the seventh and final book of Stephen King's saga of the same name (though a prequel was released in 2012 entitled 'The Dark Tower: The Wind Through the Keyhole' that was meant to become the fifth novel); a series which he has more than once described as his magnum opus.

This is one scary movie we're definitely looking forward to.
A re-boot for one of the scariest Stephen King films ever released, 'It', is finally coming next year with Andrés Muscietti named as director. However, there's no-one yet attached to the lead villain role of evil shape-shifting clown Pennywise. So who do you think should play him?
Will Poulter from 'The Revenant' was originally in talks for the part, but news has emerged that he has backed out. There's no word yet on whether or not Tim Curry will reprise the role, though it's definitely unlikely as much as we'd love to see him back. Let's look at the specs: Pennywise has his insane laugh, wide smile, gruff voice and is largely humorous. So who could rock those traits the best?
Jim Carrey has clowned around plenty of times before

It joins '10 Cloverfield Lane' and the upcoming ghost story 'The Conjuring 2'.
This year is quite the year for horror. We've already seen a good handful of epic chillers and it's not stopping there. Stephen King's 'Cell' is the latest movie to be announced for release later this year, but here's a look at what we've seen so far and what's to come this summer.
Meet the band in exhilarating horror 'Green Room'
1. Green Room - Patrick Stewart as a ruthless psychopath determined to murder a punk band may seem an unlikely concept but that's what makes this nerve shredding horror (directed by Jeremy Saulnier of 'Blue Ruin') so grippingly intense. When a band shows up at neo-Nazi bar for a show, they unwittingly find themselves witnesses to a brutal murder - and now they're next on the hitlist. Alongside Patrick Stewart, the movie also stars Joe Cole from 'Peaky Blinders', '28 Weeks Later' actress Imogen Poots and 'Star Trek Into Darkness' star Anton Yelchin.

Who will play Pennywise?
There's a lot of Stephen King to look forward to over the next few months; his horror tales consistently make good movies, so much so that sometimes you gotta make them again. Pennywise the evil clown is returning next year in a re-boot of 'It'.
Stephen King's 'It' returns
Many might confess that the last Stephen King character they want to see again is Pennywise; once was enough for a lifetime of nightmares. Nonetheless, this 1990 Primetime Emmy winner is such a popular fear flick that it's being given a modern makeover - we just wonder how they're going to improve on the vision of terror that is that darned clown. It's probably a fact that nobody has booked a clown for their kid's birthday since 1990. Probably.

Witches are scary once again.
The directorial feature debut of Robert Eggers has put the scariness back into witch culture with a critically-acclaimed slow-burning horror that even had Stephen King terrified. 'The Witch' doesn't rely on jumpy moments or grotesque imagery, merely unsettling scenery and a menacing film score. It's a precious release for the horror genre, because genuinely enjoyable (and scary) occult-based films are very few and far between.
We've racked our brains to think of ten of the best witch horrors of all time:
'The Witch' is the horror film to beat this year

The double Golden Globe-nominated British actor is tapped to play the lead role in the big screen adaptation of King's novel.
The British star, 42, is due to play the part of gunslinger Roland Deschain, who squares off against the series’ villain, The Man In Black, played by Matthew Mcconaughey who had previously expressed interest in playing both roles, according to Deadline.
A big screen adaptation of King’s epic series of novels has been rumoured for a long time, but the new project’s backers Sony are reportedly going to be more ambitious than settling for just a movie, floating the idea of a TV series set in the same fictional universe.
