I really hope this movie is good because the book series by Stephen King is incredible. If you've never heard of The Dark Tower ($TBA), then a little background is needed. Starting in 1982 Stephen King released a series of eight books. The final book was completed in 2012. The story was actually completed after the seventh book "The Dark Tower" and the last book takes place between books four and five.The Gunslinger (1982) The Drawing of the Three (1987) The Waste Lands (1991) Wizard and Glass (1997) Wolves of the Calla (2003) Song of Susannah (2004) The Dark Tower (2004) The Wind Through the Keyhole (2012)The story was inspired by Robert Browning's poem "Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came". It's about Roland Deschain. He is the last living member of a group known as Gunslingers. His world looks similar to the old west but also include magical characteristics. His world is dying. The magic is disappearing as well as many of the technological advances. Nations are being torn apart, cities are vanishing and time is no longer flowing in a predictable manner. The pattern of the sun is even no longer predictable.The series documents Roland's quest to find the Dark Tower. A building that is said to be the center of all universes. He must find the tower to keep his world and all worlds from moving on.The movie stars Matthew McConaughey as the Man in Black, Katheryn Winnick as Laurie Chambers, Tom Taylor as Jake Chambers and Idris Elba as The Gunslinger. The Dark Tower drops on August 4th. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Now that the season is over for The Walking Dead, it's time to get excited for the next big thing in zombie goodness. It looks like Brad Pits new movie coming out this June will fit the bill. Brad plays United Nations employee Gerry Lane, whose job is to go around the world and stop the Zombie pandemic that is threatening the human race. The one difference between these zombies and the walking dead zombies is that these guys can move. I mean Usain Bolt kinda speed. If you haven't seen it check out the trailer. Can't wait to see this one. Let me know what your think.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TvRCQM2HrXs

Don't get your hopes up, the Mini Paceman Adventure Concept ($TBA) was just a project by a bunch of BMW apprentices in Munich who were instructed to create a vision for the Mini brand. They started off with your basic Mini Cooper S Paceman and removed the rear end and rear bench to create the cargo area. The whole thing is powered by Mini's four-wheel drive, and turbocharged 1.6-liter engine. They even added a roof level air intake so you can cross rivers without stalling. As much as I wanted to hate it, I actual hope Mini releases this thing some day.
