Featurette: “The Dark Tower” Gunslinger’s Legacy

Sony Pictures has premiered a new featurette for the upcoming film adaptation of Stephen King’s “The Dark Tower” fantasy novel series. Incorporating interviews with stars Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey, along with King himself, the series explores the legacy of Elba’s Roland Deschain (aka. The Gunslinger) character.

Deschain is Mid-World’s last gunslinger who is traveling southeast across its 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.

Nikolaj Arcel helms the film which also stars Tom Taylor, Jackie Earle Haley, Katheryn Winnick and Claudia Kiim. The film opens worldwide on August 4th.
