    "The art of the film" : what does that mean?
    I would understand the reason of this book if there was already a successful saga of movies, but isnt it a bit early for this?

    The author and publisher just now that King fans are buying pretty much everything related

    Well, it's probably gonna be like any of those "Art of the Film" books. They're coffee-table books with photos and articles about the production of the film. Here's one they made for "Batman vs. Superman":

    Film is an art form. I wonder if this book will have an essay or something by King

    Film is an art form. Regardless of what the perceived quality of the film ends up being, there was still a lot of prep work that went into making this movie. A lot of concept art, a lot of 3D renderings, a lot of drawings and images and brainstorming etc.

    This book will showcase that process.

    Thanks all for the replies. Except if it includes an intro by Steve or any essay, it doesnt seem that relevant to me... but may still get one!

    Amazon has the description now:

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/1501164457/
    This deluxe, illustrated official companion to the Dark Tower movie—based on Stephen King’s bestselling seven volume series—explores the art and creation of this extraordinary film, starring Idris Elba as The Gunslinger and Matthew McConaughey as his nemesis, The Man in Black.

    A gorgeous celebration of the art and creation of the Dark Tower movie, The Making of the Dark Tower includes interviews with actors and the director, the costume designer, and the set designer. From revealing how casting found the stars and the photography team scouted key locations, thoughts on where the Dark Tower can go from here, the book is organized into five parts.

    Part I: The Path to the Tower discusses the origins of the saga and its thematic and cultural influences. Part II: The Gunslinger and the Man in Black profiles the two characters as two opposing forces. Part III: Mid-World is a journey through the bizarre wasteland of interdimensional detritus that is Mid-World. Part IV: Keystone World might be our Earth, but the Keystone World of the Dark Tower universe is also rocked by quakes and stretched thin by interdimensional stress. Part V: The Dark Tower is the wrap-up section collecting insights from the film’s major players, sharing their favorite memories and looking back on the journey that led them to this point.

    Over three decades ago Stephen King introduced readers to Roland Deschain, the last Gunslinger. In 2003 King wrote the last of seven novels in the Dark Tower series. Now fans of the book and of the movie will welcome this big, beautiful, full-color book that they’ll need for their collections.

    The one for Rogue One is very cool. I have a friend that has all the ones for The Lord of the Rings Trilogy and The Hobbit Trilogy. I'll more than likely get this one for The Dark Tower.

    Whatever else the movie brings, the visuals for the Dark Tower itself look fantastic!

    By the way, looks like the book was renamed from "The Making of The Dark Tower - The Art of the Film", to "The Dark Tower : the art of the film"
    Does anyone know (for instance Bev?) if by any chance Steve will contribute something to it? More than probably just an interview?

    Still no news about a possible Dark Tower story, by the release of the movie?
    I am convinced that something will be published, but maybe announced closer to release date?

    I'll admit that my contact at the french publisher of TDT didn't hear anything, but I was really certain that he would take that opportunity to write something that he wanted to write about that universe :-(
