The first poster for Columbia Pictures’ The Dark Tower is a stunner, giving off an Inception vibe mixed with a little Doctor Strange.
On it we see the back of Idris Elba as Gunslinger Roland Deschain, who roams an Old West-like landscape in search of the dark tower, in the hopes that reaching it will preserve his dying world. He’s accompanied by Jake Chambers (Tom Taylor), with Matthew McConaughey playing the Man in Black.
The film is not a direct adaptation of any of the books in the series from author Stephen King but is rather a continuation and semi-amalgamation of what’s already out there. It’s hinted that the film takes place towards the end of Deschain’s journey.
The film also stars Fran Kranz, Jackie Earle Haley, Abbey Lee, and Kathryn Winnick.
The Dark Tower, which was recently delayed to July 28, 2017, was directed by Nikolaj Arcel and produced by Akiva Goldman, Ron Howard, Brian Grazer, and Erica Hughes.
