After years of development, and months of teasing, things are finally starting to pay off as the first trailer for Stephen King’s The Dark Tower has been released. The trailer focuses on the perspective of Jake Chambers, a young boy from Earth who comes to learn that the legends of the Gunslinger, and the evil of the Man in Black, are all too real.
There are other worlds than these. 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. The last Gunslinger, 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. With the fate of the worlds at stake, good and evil will collide in the ultimate battle as only Roland can defend the Tower from the Man in Black.
