There is a rumor going around that it may be the first in the Stephen King "Tower of Darkness" or "Dark Tower" or something like that series, but I know nothing about this series to know if this sounds right or not.

Damn J.J. Abrams and his ways.
:Q

The description in the title sounds nothing like the DT series, though.

if JJ Abrams did it we can all look forward to boring convoluted plots with a finish that makes no sense but leaves nerds screaming about his genius.
In that case the film(s) should follow the books nicely. :laugh:

you the fvck is this JJ Abrams?
some average writer/producer that nerds drool over and idolize.

gotcha. so if he directed the next Harry Potter flick, ~75% of ATOT would crap their pants?

No - this is not even remotely related to The Dark Tower events/plot.


Gotta be Godzilla, in my mind.

This thread title cracks me up. :D

Just saw the trailer on Apple...hurray for yet another crisis-hits-NYC movie. I will definitely watch it and later bitch about the plot on here.

Agreed. This is nothing like The Dark Tower series. The only thing they share is that they both have a little something to do with New York.

If it was The Dark Tower series, it would've started out in a desert. At least that's how I've always pictured it.

"The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed..."

Too lazy to go find it again but I read that the movie could be based on the game "Rampage." I forget the connections that were made in that theory but they seemed pretty valid.

Didn't the last godzilla movie get advertised in a similar way? (Mysterious ads) I could be wrong (am probably am).

I thought it was supposed to be more of a Cthulhu, H.P. Lovecraft-ian style horror done from a 1st person camera perspective.
