Does this stuff usually come out after the movie hits mainstream media?

    FWIW there are going to be several different DT toys like Funko Pops of Roland and Walter.
    I was looking for the funko pops until I finally checked and saw they aren't out yet.
    Yeah, I notice that today actually when checking out Zavvi's sale. On the plus side they were quite early in the listing.

    You would think there would have been more advertisements for the film at this stage though.

    There haven't been much in the way of movie trailers or TV ads for "IT" either. That film is generating "online buzz", which is maybe what TPTB are looking for to happen. That being said, we may be able to help support the film by getting as much out there online as possible? Call me a newbie!! lol lol

    Viewed the ~2 minute trailer yesterday and today in a theater prior to the main film starting.

    Jumbled mess. A DT fan would understand, but I don't think the average person is going to be compelled to see it.

    My wife just shrugged.

    August is the dumping ground for films. It doesn't bode well.

    I think it's going to bomb hard and that sucks but I'm not completely without hope.

    People said that "January" was the dumping ground. Then, that changed to February.

    There are a few. January, February, August and September.

    August is considered the wild spot month now. The first Guardians movie premiered in August.

    IT will definitely do better and probably be the better movie but I am way more excited for the Dark Tower. You know what you are gonna get with IT. The DT movie has a much bigger canvas to play with.

    With the exception of Wonder Woman, this year's crop of summer movies have been underwhelming. Outside of Spidey and Apes, Dark Tower is looking very enticing.

    Right here is precisely why I am intrigued enough to make the pilgrimage to my local movie theater. Not only does the Horn fit in neatly with the established nature of The Dark Tower's universe, it also was/is a great reason to shake things up from a filmmaker's perspective. We call that a "win-win".

    I've said it before and I'll say it again, I am so glad they chose to approach this film in this manner as a "continuation" rather than an adaption.

    I fucking love that shot of Roland and Jake @ 0:25 aiming their guns at the unseen threat.

    That is Jake? I perceived the other shooter to be Steven Deschain.

    I wonder if they are stuck between making a good trailer and getting people interested and not giving away all the good parts of the movie before it's released. Or is that maybe wishful thinking?
    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?
