We’ve known about the new Dark Tower movie for a while now, but weirdly, there’s been very few leaks, video footage, or even information about the new Stephen King adaptation. FINALLY, however, we have a trailer! And it’s everything we’d hoped for and more.
The new movie is set to be released on 4th August, and we’ve been pretty excited ever since we heard the news. The new trailer has certainly got the heat rising, and we’re hoping these next few months go pretty quickly because we’re eager to see how this one plays out. The trailer gives us the overall gist of the movie – and it’s a good’un.
The Dark Tower will see Idris Elba play Roland Deschain (The Gunslinger), starring alongside Matthew McConaughey as the Man in Black, the demonic sorcerer. The new movie will outlay an epic mix of western, horror and fantasy, and will be set in the Mid-World. Stephen King fans are chomping at the bit to see how the Dark Tower is recreated on-screen, but even if you’re not a fan it’s definitely going to be on the must-watch list.
Initially, the movie was set to be released in February just gone, but producers were slightly overambitious with their release date, and have since pushed it back to August. However, the extra wait is worth it for this immense cast. Alongside Elba and McConaughey stars Jackie Earle Haley, Abbey Lee, Katheryn Winnick and Dennis Haysbert. You couldn’t really get any better than that.
We’re expecting the new movie to be a hit – and if all goes well, there could even be a TV series on the cards. Producer Ron Howard has said,
Creatively it could work very well, hand in hand with what we’d like the movies to be.
So see what you think about the trailer…
