The Dark Tower Moves To August

Posted: March 31, 2017, 08:24
The Dark Tower movie has been pushed forward one week and will now premier August 4.

In The Dark Tower, the mythical, shadowy edifice they’re chasing is also elusive. It exists in a trans-dimensional state, and pinning it down to a specific time and place can be difficult.

The same is true of the movie. It just moved back another week, to Aug. 4.

But now, EW has learned The Dark Tower is indeed abandoning the July 28 date, switching places with Sony’s animated The Emoji Movie.

A Sony spokesperson says the studio “will not move” the date again and that this latest one-week push was done to give The Emoji Movie “more summertime play” before school returns to session and less to do with The Dark Tower, which won’t be as reliant on young viewers.

Sources tell EW a trailer release is imminent, so stay tuned as we prepare to join Roland in our journey to the tower.
