DVD/BLU-RAY
View: While It continues to make box office history, another of Stephen King's books adapted to film, The Dark Tower, is out Tuesday. Though USA TODAY's Brian Truitt gave the film only * out of four stars, he cited Idris Elba as the lone highlight for "a winning sense of stoic gravitas as Roland Deschain, a gunslinger of Arthurian-like legend." 

'Alias Grace' airs on Netflix Friday.
