'The Dark Tower' Trailer Is Here
We've all been kept waiting long enough and as promised, the first full length trailer for The Dark Tower arrived this morning.
Both Idris and McConaughey had been exchanging teaser tweets in character, leading up to the release of the trailer, and with another four months until the release of the film, we can expect a whole lot more to be drip fed across the summer.
Idris Elba plays Roland Deschain, the last Gunslinger, locked in an eternal battle with Matthew McConaughey's Walter O'Dim, also known as the Man in Black. The Gunslinger must prevent the Man in Black from toppling the Dark Tower, the key that holds the universe together. With the fate of worlds at stake, two men collide in the ultimate battle between good and evil.
Adapted from Stephen Kings novel The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger, this adaptation has seen off directors J.J. Abrams and Ron Howard across the 10 years it has taken to come to the big screen. There are eight books in the series in total, so if this cleans up at the box office as expected, this will be a franchise that will run and run.
