I never knew he had a new movie.
O_O
Stephen King is so creative.

I was going to see the My Little Pony: Equestria Girls Movie and the one that involves crime being legal for one day... Oh, yes. It's "The Purge".

No spoilers, please.

I am assuming the show is based off his book. I have been seeing a lot of promotions for it.  If they stick close to the book it should be interesting.

The book version had a town's residents stuck under the dome for about a week, from what I hear the show will push that timeline.  It will be interesting to see the adaptation. And what stays true, and what changes etc.

Isn't this the same plot as The Simpsons Movie?

The idea is silly.

A giant dome descends to cover a town. Ooooookkkk 

But there's no explanation for it. Who made it? Where did it come from? Why is it there?

And the end of the book had me going WTF?
