Nicolaj Arcel’s adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower is one of the most anticipated cinematic events of 2017, promising an epic showdown between Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey.
A collection of new spots have been released, and offer audiences insight into lead protagonist Roland Deschain (Elba), and his cunning adversary Walter Paddick (McConaughey).
While Roland’s spot exemplifies his position as the last gunslinger, who is caught in a desperate battle to stop the end of the world, McConaughey’s focuses on his character’s affinity for the dark arts, and a quest for ultimate power.
The final spot titled ‘Earth’ offers viewers a picture of the exotic landscape of the other dimension called Mid-World, along with teasing the presence of the mythical Dark Tower.
With its compelling narrative, vast scale and innovative world building, not to mention the presence of two of the biggest stars in the world, The Dark Tower will surely leave audiences enthralled when it is released on August 4 in the US and UK and on August 17 in New Zealand and Australia.
