Check out the latest trailer for the upcoming feature adaptation The Dark Tower, which is filled with more scenes of action than the last offering. However, it might not be quite what horror fans are looking for. Head on down to watch the footage and decide for yourself.
Based on the King-penned fantasy series, the film follows a wandering knight who is the last hope of the fallen land of Mid-World. He is charged with finding the Dark Tower while battling his nemesis, the Man in Black.
“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.”
Idris Elba, Matthew McConaughey, Tom Taylor, Fran Kranz, Jackie Earle Haley, Katheryn Winnick, and Abbey Lee star.
Nikolaj Arcel will direct the adaption, with Ron Howard and Brian Grazer producing under their Imagine Entertainment banner. The Dark Tower was recently delayed to Auguest 4, 2017.
