Suntup Editions Covers Edition Salem’s Lot: Now Available for Pre-Order

Suntup Editions is pleased to present Salem’s Lot by Dave Christensen. This artwork appeared on the 1st edition of Salem’s Lot, published in 1975. On the cover, the painting was very small. It measured just over 1 1/2″ wide and about 2 1/2″ tall. Now for the first time, you can experience this iconic painting at a size you have never seen before.

Suntup was fortunate to have obtained a scan of the original painting, and in this one-of-a-kind reproduction, you can see the smallest of details, down to the brush strokes!

A must-have for King fans, especially if you’re a fan of ‘Salem’s Lot. These prints are hand-signed by Dave Christensen, and the first 20 include an original Remarque, most of which are already pre-sold to print subscribers.

Exclusively available through Suntup Editions for your private collection, and limited to just 50 signed copies per size, worldwide.

The IT Experience, A Pop-Up Haunted House In Hollywood Based On The Stephen King Novel

The IT Experience,” a new pop-up haunted house at Hollywood and Vine, offers fans of Stephen King’s classic 1986 novel IT a chance to step into the world of Pennywise the clown. The haunted house is for fans 18 and over, and comes ahead of the film adaptation, which opens September 8.

Walking into the Niebolt House, named for the abandoned house where the Loser’s Club first encounters Pennywise in the novel, guests will be able to experience “where IT lives” as they are guided by Georgie, whose wayward paper sailboat sets the story in motion in the book and film, through the 5,000-square-foot house as they venture from room to room through immersive sets inspired by scenes from the film with authentic props.

In groups of seven, visitors will form their own Loser’s Club as they traverse the haunted lair of the murderous entity known as It for a 20-minute experience encountering pneumatic surprises, live actors, holographic images and animatronic beings.

The IT Experience will be open daily from Aug. 14 through Sept. 10 at Hollywood Blvd. and Vine St. in Hollywood.

Cemetery Dance To Publish Night Shift: The Deluxe Special Edition By Stephen King

This new book of stories from the author of Carrie, The Shining, and ‘Salem’s Lot is a chilling collection of strange imaginings, ghoulish twists, and diabolical terror. Stephen King, a modern master of the macabre, has brought together nineteen of his most unsettling short pieces—bizarre tales of dark doings and unthinkable acts from the twilight regions where horror and madness take on eerie, unearthly forms… where noises in the walls and shadows by the bed are always signs of something dreadful on the prowl.

The settings are familiar and unsuspected—a high school, a factory, a truck stop, a laundry, a field of Nebraska corn. But in Stephen King’s world and place can serve as devil’s ground… if the time of night is propitious and the forces of darkness are strong, and the victims are caught just slightly off guard.

In the ominous, frightening world of Stephen King there are things unimagined, almost unspeakable, working the Night Shift:

– Strange presences in Jerusalem’s Lot, a town abandoned for generations—and with good reason. No one who wanders there now, after the sun has set, ever comes back alive…

– And the hideous growths on the hands of a former astronaut—tiny round and yellow eyes popping through the skin, watching him, not liking what they see…

– And the mysterious little girl lost in a fierce Maine blizzard, calling out to her rescuers in a pitiful voice. But she walks on top of the deep, drifting snow—and she leaves no tracks…

– And the grim-faced children in a Midwest town where no one seems to live past the age of nineteen…
– And the vermin in the second sub-celler of the old mill—abandoned to darkness for a hundred years and now assuming shapes and sizes nature never intended them to take…

– And the giant folding and steam pressing machine in the Blue Ribbon Laundry—an impressive and reliable piece of equipment, until it got its first taste of human blood…

– A foreword by Stephen King
– An introduction by John D. MacDonald
– A brand new afterword by Stewart O’Nan
– Deluxe oversized design (7 inches X 10 inches) featuring two color interior printing

Watch The Dark Tower Magnum Opus Featurette

A new Magnum Opus featurette for Sony Pictures‘ upcoming The Dark Tower has arrived online!

There are other worlds than these. Stephen King’s The Dark Tower, the ambitious and expansive story from one of the world’s most celebrated authors, makes its launch to the big screen. The last Gunslinger, Roland Deschain (Idris Elba), has been locked in an eternal battle with Walter O’Dim, also known as the Man in Black (Matthew McConaughey), determined to prevent him from toppling the Dark Tower, which holds the universe together. With the fate of the worlds at stake, good and evil will collide in the ultimate battle as only Roland can defend the Tower from the Man in Black.

Elba and McConaughey are joined in The Dark Tower by Tom Taylor, Claudia Kim, Fran Kranz, Abbey Lee, and Jackie Earle Haley. The film is directed by Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair) from a script by Akiva Goldsman & Jeff Pinkner and Anders Thomas Jensen & Nikolaj Arcel. The producers are Akiva Goldsman, Ron Howard, and Erica Huggins. G. Mac Brown is executive producing.

The Dark Tower book series tells the story of Roland Deschain, Mid-World’s last gunslinger, who is traveling southeast across Mid-World’s post-apocalyptic landscape, searching for the powerful but elusive magical edifice known as The Dark Tower. Located in the fey region of End-World, amid a sea of singing red roses, the Dark Tower is the nexus point of the time-space continuum.  It is the heart of all worlds, but it is also under threat. Someone, or something, is using the evil technology of the Great Old Ones to destroy it.

The Dark Tower is coming to theaters on August 4, 2017.

Stephen King Talks The Dark Tower In A World Exclusive From Empire Magazine

“You don’t sit down one day and say, ‘Well, I think I’ll write a magnus opus.’ But I said to myself, ‘This could be really long and really exciting and I wanna take a crack at it.’ Look what happened.” What happened, is that Stephen King (speaking exclusively in the brand new issue of Empire) wrote something so audaciously ambitious, so creatively complex, that it seemed unfilmable. The work in question? The Dark Tower, of course.

“It never seemed likely to me that someone would come along and want to make a film out of it,” King continues. “There were things from time to time, when people would talk about the possibility, but I never took it seriously.” The Dark Tower’s journey from page to screen has certainly been a colorful one, with J.J. Abrams attempting to adapt it alongside Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse as far back as 2007. Ron Howard and Akiva Goldsman came on board in 2010, casting Javier Bardem as gunslinger Roland Deschain and planning to deliver three films with two television series sandwiched between. “I liked that idea,” King tells Empire. “Everybody did.”

Though Ron Howard eventually moved on, his replacement – first-time director Nikolaj Arcel (screenwriter for the Swedish version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) – set about tackling Goldsman’s draft. “I like Akiva Goldsman as a writer very much,” says King. “(Akiva) said, ‘Why don’t we start in media res, in the middle of the story?’ Akiva’s idea and Nic’s idea, was to say, ‘Maybe this is the second time around for Roland Deschain…’”

After 10 years of in-production limbo, it was only “two years ago” when King started to actually believe this film would hit the big screen.

Remarkably, The Dark Tower pops the author’s producing cherry, also gifted casting approval over an ensemble headed by Idris Elba (“in the books, it’s never said that Roland Deschain is a Caucasian person”) and Matthew McConaughey (“to me, he was always Walter, pretty much the way I’d imagined him. When people fall back from him in fear, you understand why”).

According to King, The Dark Tower “is something completely new that melds the Western with fantasy. This is a risky project. It’s not backed up by a bunch of comic books. (It’s) scary. But I’m happy with what we’ve got.”

For more on The Dark Tower, including interviews with McConaughey and Elba, be sure to pick up the brand new issue of Empire.
