By this point in a big film’s marketing cycle, we typically would have seen a couple trailers, a ton of posters, lengthy magazine pieces, the works. In contrast, there has been so little concrete info out there on The Dark Tower, which opens in theaters in almost exactly three months, that some people (like, y’know, me) began to doubt whether the movie would open on time, or even if it existed at all.
New ‘Dark Tower’ Motion Posters Tease the Trailer Is Finally, Actually, Coming Tomorrow
If you read our summer movie preview yesterday you might have seen The Dark Tower on our list and thought, ‘Wait, what?! That’s coming out in August?’ Yes, your eyeballs will finally see the long awaited Stephen King adaptation in just three months, but the average moviegoer wouldn’t know it from the complete lack of marketing.

Harmony Korine Taps Matthew McConaughey for ‘The Beach Bum’
Harmony Korine’s been laying fairly low since his last feature, 2013’s neon-hued crime rave Spring Breakers.

With the Guardians sequel poised to rake in the billions, why take a chance on a franchise-starter that might not have the same box office heft?

‘Kubo and the Two Strings’ Review: A Mythological Masterpiece From Laika
Anomalisa is a tough stop-motion act to follow (to be fair, Charlie Kaufman typically sets the bar pretty high), but if anyone is suited for the task it’s Laika, the studio behind delightful animated features like ParaNorman and The Boxtrolls. Their latest effort blends Laika’s usual wit and charm with stunning visuals matched by an equally remarkable journey, making Kubo and the Two Strings an epic worthy of the eponymous character’s vibrant mythology.
