The big-screen adaptation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower opened in theaters over the weekend, starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey. It topped the box office charts, which reflects the high anticipation for the first screen version of King's epic work.
Still, it fell short of expectations and did not fare particularly well with critics, as its Rotten Tomatoes score reflects. What does that mean for the future of The Dark Tower?
Is this first movie a total write-off?
Oh, no. Reportedly, the budget was a relatively modest $60 million and it's made nearly $20 million so far just in the U.S. So the movie has a fair shot at recouping its costs through the international theatrical release and home video market.
What about the TV series?
