There’s a new international trailer out for The Dark Tower starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey, and while I’m still looking forward to seeing both of their performances in the film, the film has yet to grab me. It seems to be the case for Sony as well, because it doesn’t look like they’ve really done any real marketing on the film other than release a couple of trailers. Pretty surprising when you consider that it hits theaters on August 4th.
There are other worlds than these. Stephen King’s The Dark Tower, the ambitious and expansive story from one of the world’s most celebrated authors, makes its launch to the big screen. The last Gunslinger, Roland Deschain (Idris Elba), has been locked in an eternal battle with Walter O’Dim, also known as the Man in Black (Matthew McConaughey), determined to prevent him from toppling the Dark Tower, which holds the universe together. With the fate of the worlds at stake, good and evil will collide in the ultimate battle as only Roland can defend the Tower from the Man in Black.
