Just the actors involved makes this a film potentially worth seeing. However, the footage shown didn't made it look more alluring than it actually possibly is. With its effects and scope looking cheap and not that refined. Something you wouldn't have expected from the size and importance of this production. Also, I personally couldn't get away from the vibe that the film felt very 90's like with the child supporting actor and the simplistic portrayal of good and evil and it simply revolving around one thing which is a tower and it being a portal of some sorts.
Note: this is coming from someone who hasn't ever read the book or comics.
