After some wondering if we would ever see a trailer for The Dark Tower before it came to theaters, worry no more as Sony released the first trailer on Wednesday.
The first trailer for the highly anticipated adaptation of the Stephen King novel finally made its way on-line Wednesday and having a normal job I’m just now able to make a post. Stephen King’s The Dark Tower is an eight book series inspired by the poem “Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came” by Robert Browning.
I’ve never read any of the Dark Tower books and therefore have no sort of expectation as what the movie should be, but after watching the trailer the movie looks like it could be fun and intriguing.
Directed by Nikolaj Arcel and starring Idris Elba as the Gunslinger, Roland Deschain, and Matthew McConaughey as the Man in Black.
The Dark Tower hits theaters on August 4, 2017
Synopsis for The Dark Tower:
Jake Chambers (Tom Taylor) is a young 11-year-old adventure seeker who discovers clues about another dimension called Mid-World. Upon following the mystery, he is spirited away to Mid-World where he encounters the lone frontiersman knight Roland Deschain (Idris Elba), who is on a quest to reach the ‘Dark Tower’ that resides in End-World and reach the nexus point between time and space that he hopes will save Mid-World from extinction. But with various monsters and a vicious sorcerer named Walter Padick (Matthew McConaughey) hot on their trail, the unlikely duo find that their quest may be difficult to complete.
