Sony Pictures presented three new spots from his next film, The Dark Tower during the NBA Finals. You can see them below. The first focuses on Idris Elba's character Roland Deschain, while the second shows the villain, Man in Black (Matthew McConaughey). The last one narrates the threat that this one poses to the Earth.
In addition to the aforementioned actors, the cast includes Tom Taylor as Jake Chambers, Abbey Lee, Jackie Earle Haley, Fran Kranz, Katheryn Winnick, Michael Barbieri and Claudia Kim. Nikolaj Arcel is the director.
The Gunner's eternal journey to the Dark Tower is the central theme of the Stephen King saga novels. With the constant output of promos and the trailer, we wondered if the movie was a remake, reboot or reinvention. Apparently, it's none of them.
With the first film based on Stephen King's sprawling Dark Tower stories headed our way this August, those who have never so much as glanced at one of the books or other media might be wondering what it's all about. Here's King plus movie cast members Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey to shed a little light in a featurette.
#4 A great release date: July 11, 2017 Watch The Dark Tower
Elba here plays Roland Deschain, a mysterious ‘Gunslinger’ in an alternative universe known as Mid-World, charged with finding the mythical Dark Tower that will save all existence from extinction. Accompanied by a young boy (Jake Chambers) from our world, the Gunslinger must embark on his quest pursued by the Man in Black (McConaughey). Suffice to say, the stakes are high for this one, not just in terms of the plot, but also the movie itself. Adapting the Dark Tower series is a challenged that has defeated various filmmakers, but now Nikolaj Arcel has tackled a story that all involved hope will launch a set off films and a potential TV companion series. This first movie is out in the UK on 18 August.
From the epic best-selling Stephen King novels, comes Columbia Pictures’ “The Dark Tower,” starring Idris Elba as the Gunslinger, Roland Deschain, and Matthew McConaughey as the Man in Black.
Check out the extended sneak peek of the film, which debuted on YouTube on Tuesday. In addition to soundbites from Elba and McConaughey, Stephen King himself weighs in on the adaptation and shares his thoughts on seeing Elba bring one of his most famous creations to life.
Stephen King’s “The Dark Tower,” the ambitious and expansive story from one of the world’s most celebrated authors, makes its launch to the big screen in August.
There are other worlds than this one. The last Knight Warrior, Roland Deschain (Idris Elba), has been locked in an eternal battle with Walter O’Dim, also known as the Man in Black (Matthew McConaughey), determined to prevent him from toppling the Dark Tower, which holds the universe together.
