‘The Dark Tower’ has been delayed again until August 4, 2017

the dark tower delayed again august 4

The Dark Tower has been delayed again. And, apparently, it’s a shit show, with the footage recently screened at CinemaCon looking quite rough.


If everything had gone according to plan, we would have seen Nikolaj Arcel‘s adaptation of Stephen King‘s The Dark Tower by now. The film was originally scheduled for a January 13, 2017 release date before being pushed back to February 17. From there, it was pushed back to July 28. And now, it looks like the quest for reach Dark Tower has just gotten a little longer, as Sony has delayed the film once more.

The Dark Tower has been pushed back a week and will now arrive on August, 4 2017. The news that the film is being delayed shouldn’t come as much of a surprise – folks outside of CinemaCon have yet to see any footage at all. In fact, our own Peter Sciretta was at CinemaCon, where he noted that the footage on display didn’t even look close to finished. As he noted on Tuesday:

…the footage had some visual effects that looked very early and unfinished for a July 28, 2017 release. With no trailer yet released for this film, I wonder if Sony will delay the movie yet again.
