You’re reading that right! It’s here! The Dark Tower trailer is here, and the hype looks real! Check it out below. Please let us know what you think in the comments! Stephen King’s The Dark Tower is one of the most recognized books and expansive story in recent history, in my opinion. With it finally coming to the big screen, I can’t help but be excited beyond belief. Of course, this movie has a ton of opportunity to fail, but from the trailer is looks like failure isn’t an option, just like in Mr. King’s books.
The movie stars Idris Elba as Roland Deschain and Matthew McConaughey as Walter O’Dim. Idris is the last gunslinger whose central duty is to protect the Dark Tower, which funny enough he’s looking for. Matthew, the polar opposite, seeks to destroy the tower and breach a hole into earth to further spread destruction and chaos. Using technology to further his advances, it will be interesting to see everything unfold. Also, to actually see Matthew McConaughey actually play a villain role further peeks my interest.
The Dark Tower arrives in theaters August 4th.
