The first trailer for THE DARK TOWER has dropped over night and its got me rather excited, I’m no book reader so prior to the trailer dropping I honestly had no idea of what it was about but seeing Idris Elba as a gunslinger had me straight away. Take a look at the trailer below.
In a world full of superheroes, there’s only one Gunslinger. From the epic best-selling novels of Stephen King comes THE DARK TOWER. Only in cinemas August 17.
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 Knight Warrior, 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.
Starring Idris Elba, Matthew McConaughey, Tom Taylor, Claudia Kim, Fran Kranz, Abbey Lee and Jackie Earle Haley.
Directed by Nikolaj Arcel
