Reader, beware: The path of this particular beam is rife with many, many spoilers for the "Dark Tower" book series and upcoming film. Read at your own risk.
One of the most iconic phrases in Stephen King's "Dark Tower" novels comes when 11-year-old boy Jake Chambers tells the series' gunslinging hero, Roland Deschain, "There are other worlds than these."
Uttered in the first book of the series, "The Gunslinger," the words mark a game-changing moment for the novels, as they hint at their central device of multiple different universes and distinct dimensions. Some worlds are similar to each other and some are not, but they all affect the entire Stephen King canon as a whole.
Friday, Tom Taylor, who plays Jake in the upcoming film adaptation (technically a sequel) posted a tweet of the quote, accompanied by an image of Jake entering a mysterious door. Book readers will recognize that the door is inside Dutch Hill, a station of sorts that leads to one of these "other worlds." To reveal any more (especially when exactly Jake says these words to Roland in "The Gunslinger") would be spoiling too much, even for those interested in spoilers. After decades of waiting for a proper "Dark Tower" film, it wouldn't be right to ruin the party. As always, long days and pleasant nights as the release grows closer.
