To the joy of many fans of Stephen King (It and The Shining) the first poster to the upcoming film based on the author’s book series ‘The Dark Tower’ has been released! We see Idris Elba (Guerrilla and Star Trek Beyond) and Tom Taylor (Legends and Doctor Foster) as the Gunslinger aka Roland Deschain and Jack Chambers along with Matthew McConaughey (Gold and Free State of Jones) as the Man in Black in this new teaser poster.
It certainly got us pretty hyped for that first trailer (fingers crossed it’ll be sometime around WonderCon)! Can’t wait to watch the journey of the Ka-Tet of Nineteen Ninety-Nine on the big screen! ‘The Dark Tower’ is set to open in theaters on July 28th.
Synopsis of ‘The Dark Tower’;
The Dark Tower series tells the story of Roland Deschain, Mid-World’s last gunslinger, who is traveling southeast across Mid-World’s post-apocalyptic landscape, searching for the powerful but elusive magical edifice known as The Dark Tower. Located in the fey region of End-World, amid a sea of singing red roses, the Dark Tower is the nexus point of the time-space continuum. It is the heart of all worlds, but it is also under threat. Someone, or something, is using the evil technology of the Great Old Ones to destroy it.
