There’s plenty of bad blood between Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey in a brand new image for The Dark Tower, which is set to be one of 2018’s biggest releases.
Adapted from Stephen King’s groundbreaking magnum opus, The Dark Tower chronicles the journey of Roland Deschain (Elba), a gunslinger and frontiersman knight who is fighting to destroy the vicious evil imposed by sorcerer Walter Padick (McConaughey) over his homeland of Mid-World.
Director Nikolaj Arcel (Mama), is the man finally bringing this ambitious fantasy project to the big screen, which previously attached directors such as J.J. Abrams and Ron Howard, and stars like Javier Bardem, Viggo Mortenson and Russell Crowe.
While we’re still waiting on the release of the first trailer, the idea of seeing Elba and McConaughey going to battle is enough to sell us on the project.
The Dark Tower will be released in cinemas on July 27, 2017 in New Zealand and Australia and on July 28, 2017 in the US and UK.
