‘The Dark Tower’: Gunslinger and the Man in Black Get Posters

These new character posters for The Dark Tower show the film’s protagonist,  Gunslinger Roland Deschain (Idris Elba, who roams an Old West-like landscape in search of the dark tower, in the hopes that reaching it will preserve his dying world, with the other being the antagonist, the Man in Black (Matthew McConaughey).

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 Aug. 4, 2017, was directed by Nikolaj Arcel and produced by Akiva Goldman, Ron Howard, Brian Grazer, and Erica Hughes.

 

Jake Chambers (Tom Taylor) is a young 11-year-old adventure seeker who discovers clues about another dimension called Mid-World. Upon following the mystery, he is spirited away to Mid-World where he encounters the lone frontiersman knight Roland Deschain (Idris Elba), who is on a quest to reach the ‘Dark Tower’ that resides in End-World and reach the nexus point between time and space that he hopes will save Mid-World from extinction. But with various monsters and a vicious sorcerer named Walter Padick (Matthew McConaughey) hot on their trail, the unlikely duo find that their quest may be difficult to complete.

    Hmmm
    I wonder if it will be pretty good

    I like Elba and McConaughey

    When it comes out will be the first time I’ve seen the whole story
    I tried to read the first book in the series,
    wasn’t it called the dark tower?

    But I just couldn’t plow through it
    It just didn’t keep my attention
