Stephen King has offered up his two cents as to why the recent adaptation of his book 'The Dark Tower' lost its shirt at the box office.
In real life, Matthew McConaughey is, by most accounts, a stand-up guy. You just wouldn’t know it from his movie posters. As eagle-eyed meme generators have pointed out, the Oscar-winning Dallas Buyers Club star has a habit of leaning on his co-stars in the posters for a number of his films.
The review embargo has lifted for the long-awaited adaptation of Stephen King's 'The Dark Tower' and it's not looking pretty.

It’s the moment Stephen King fans have been waiting for – his fantasy epic ‘The Dark Tower’ has finally been brought to life. After some teasers from its stars Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey on Twitter yesterday, and some pretty cool motion posters released online, we’ve got our first proper look at the forthcoming movie. Elba plays the ‘gunslinger’ Roland Deschain, the last of his kind who roam the post-apocalyptic Mid-World, which exists in parallel to Earth, in search of the ‘dark tower’, the nexus of all universes.

The Oscar-winning star of 'Gold' says the entire film set DISAPPEARED under water while shooting in Thailand. 'Gold' is in cinemas now.
Matthew McConaughey returns to cinemas this week in ‘Gold’ (out on 3 February) playing prospector Kenny Wells, a fictional character loosely inspired by real-life miner David Walsh who brought the Canadian stock market to its knees in the 1990s.

It’s a stark contrast to the extreme weight loss he underwent for his Oscar-winning performance in ‘Dallas Buyers Club’.

There they found McConaughey, pre-McConaissance, of course, ‘dancing naked’, and arrested him, the charges relating to the possession of marijuana and its necessary paraphernalia and resisting transportation. “I don’t want to rent a place there, but it was a nice stay for a night,” McConaughey said at the time.
Matthew McConaughey and Naomi Watts in a movie directed by Oscar-nominated Gus Van Sant should be a sure thing. The movie was made last year, and is set in the Aokigahara forest in Japan, at the bottom of Mount Fuji, known as the ‘suicide forest’ due to the number of people who go there to take their own lives (54 were recorded in 2010 alone). McConaughey plays a businessman who goes there to do just that, but meets another man, Takumi, played by Ken Watanabe, who is planning to do the same.
Gary Oldman has the “role of a lifetime” playing a dwarf, it features Matthew McConaughey and Kate Beckinsale at the height of their mainstream fame, yet it’s been called one of the worst and most tasteless movies ever made. When the British actress signed on for 2003’s ‘Tiptoes’, written and directed by cult filmmaker Matthew Bright, she agreed to do it for SAG minimum wage – with one condition. The now-63-year-old (below) had actually written the script for ‘Tiptoes’ when he was 18.
