Two Great Promos For THE DARK TOWER Tease The Gunslinger and The Man in Black in Action
While we wait for the first full trailer to be released tomorrow for The Dark Tower, here's a couple brief new teasers for you to enjoy that give us our first footage from the film! The first focuses on Matthew McConaughey as Walter O’Dim a.k.a. Randall Flagg a.k.a. The Man in Black. As you'll see, he's ready for The Tower to fall. McConaughy is so perfect for this role! The second spot centers on Idris Elba as The Gunslinger, who says " I don't kill with my gun. I kill with my heart".
I really hope that this movie is great and that it succeeds. Stephen King has had nothing but good things to say about it, so that's a plus! There was a fun little lead up to the new promo spots with a Twitter exchange between McConaughey and Elba. Here's how it went down:
And then he posts the trailer which you can watch below:
Idris then says:
And posts this promo spot, which is so cool!
The Dark Tower series tells the story of Roland Deschain, Mid-World’s last gunslinger, who is traveling southeast across Mid-World’s post-apocalyptic landscape, searching for the powerful but elusive magical edifice known as The Dark Tower. Located in the fey region of End-World, amid a sea of singing red roses, the Dark Tower is the nexus point of the time-space continuum. It is the heart of all worlds, but it is also under threat. Someone, or something, is using the evil technology of the Great Old Ones to destroy it.
The film is being directed by Nikolaj Arcel and it also stars Tom Taylor as Jake Chambers, Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road) as Tirana; Fran Kranz (The Cabin in the Woods) as Pimli, the right hand man of Randall Flagg; Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen); Katheryn Winnick (Vikings) and Claudia Kiim (Avengers: Age of Ultron).
The Dark Tower hits theaters this summer on August 4, 2017. To catch up on all of our Dark Tower news, click here.
