Stephen King’s epic literary saga The Dark Tower has delighted fans for generations. The tales of Roland Deschain are some of the most loved stories told by the author and now the trailer for the movie based on those stories is here.
Idris Elba (Star Trek: Beyond) plays Roland Deschain, the last Gunslinger. He is locked in an ongoing quest to end the threat of the Man in Black, played by Matthew McConaughey (Dallas Buyers Club) in a world that is like ours but in the aftermath of worldwide devastation. In the film, Roland and The Man in Black take their war to the streets of New York as a young man named Jack starts receiving visions of the Dark Tower, a place of immense power that holds the worlds together.
Jack must find the Gunslinger and stop the Man in Black before he reaches the Dark Tower to prevent the destruction of reality itself. The trailer is filled with action from Idris Elba’s Roland as well as the quiet menace of the Man in Black from McConaughey. It will be interesting to see how they bring Stephen King’s epic story to life on the screen this summer.
