Martin Scorsese Says the Look of ‘Silence’ Was Influenced by Classic Japanese Cinema
When you make a movie set in Japan, it’s a good idea to know what Japan looks like. And how better to do that, than to watch as much Japanese cinema as you can consume?

‘The Dark Tower’ Producers Confirm Those Plot Rumors and Story Changes
Fans of The Dark Tower have been speculating for a while about how the movie adaptation could be reshuffling the story around a little bit. Characters were cast that don't appear in the seven-book-long series until much later than the first installment, which hinted at some possible plot reconfiguration. A promo image of the Horn of Eld posted by Stephen King himself on his Twitter also suggested that this version of The Dark Tower might not take the same path as the one we’re familiar with. Later, for EW’s coverage of the film, director Nikolaj Arcel talked about taking the story in a slightly different direction from the books, utilizing plot elements but moving them around a bit to make the story more movie-friendly.
