First “Dark Tower” Trailer Arrives Shortly

The first official trailer for Stephen King fantasy novel series adaptation “The Dark Tower” is set to arrive within the next day, and ahead of that comes three motion posters for the film which stars Idris Elba, Matthew McConaughey and Tom Taylor.

Elba plays Roland Deschain, Mid-World’s last gunslinger, who is traveling southeast across a 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.

The 2min 32sec trailer comes ahead of the film’s opening in cinemas on August 4th 2017.
