Edgar Wright directing adaptation of Stephen King’s ‘The Running Man’ for Paramount. Holy fuck, yes!
Holy shit, Edgar Wright is directing a new adaptation of The Running Man. Man, ain’t this good news for my ass. Given my love for Stephen King lately, and my adoration for Edgar Wright! Oh hell yes.
It’s a Stephen King quote, friends! But it’s applicable both existentially, and to OL proper! Ya’ll are old friends that I have missed as of late. Lately, I’ve been eating an absolute speed bagging to my proverbial balls. Not even in a bad way, if you can believe it. Rather, just extremely long days sitting in a chair and staring into the void of a webcam while teaching. Immediately followed by a hollowed-out feeling of exhaustion when the daily gauntlet is completed.
Fall semesters are always draining, but they’re doubly draining in this new (and perhaps temporary?) digital world. Everything just flat-out takes more fucking time than it used to. Want to do group work? You can’t just print shit! Gotta assemble individual files for each group’s section, upload said files to Google Drive, check that they’re in the right folder, confirm that they’re shareable. Blah, blah, blah.
New It trailer. I don’t know the source material, but the trailer seems fine! I mean, no matter what, can’t be the worst King adaptation this year, right? *Stares at The Dark Tower*
I don’t know The Dark Tower at all, so I really have no idea how this trailer resonates with fans of the series. But! I hope ya’ll dig it.
I’ve never read It. I haven’t watched the original It in twenty-years. So, I don’t give a sh(it) (ha!) about this trailer. I hope you King folks enjoy it, though!
New Dark Tower poster! Everyone who this excites, celebrate! Oh, celebrate so much.
Fans of The Dark Tower eagerly awaiting its movie adaptation are going to have to wait a bit longer. Originally scheduled for February 17, 2017, the movie has been pushed back to a very nebulous “Summer 2017” release date.
So, I’m not going to watch this because I have two episodes of Stranger Things left to go. But you should! ‘Cause I’m sure it is glorious.
