The Dark Tower Trailer

We’re now in the second half of blockbuster summer, and while it seems like all the big studios movies will stop charging into theaters once the end of July rolls around, Sony Pictures wants to make sure you don’t forget about the one arriving a little late to the summer blockbuster cookout.

The Dark Tower is an adaptation of Stephen King‘s acclaimed and beloved book series, and a new international trailer has just arrived to teased the conflict between the last gunslinger (Idris Elba) and the figure of evil known as The Man in Black (Matthew McConaughey). This trailer certainly isn’t light on the action, and it gives us a much better glimpse at the battle these two wage against each other, a battle that could end up having drastic consequences for our own world.

the dark tower featurette

Can the dense mythology of The Dark Tower be condensed into a two-minute featurette narrated by Idris Elba, Matthew McConaughey and Stephen King? Kind of.

The first look at the film outside of its cryptic trailers dives into the motivations of the characters played by Elba and McConaughey, shows some new footage of the film, offers up some glimpses behind-the-scenes, and boils the story down to its essence: a fight between good and evil.

Longtime fans of Stephen King’s lengthy seven-book saga The Dark Tower weren’t exactly thrilled with the film adaptation’s first trailer. Instead of being a straightforward retelling of The Gunslinger, the first story in King’s saga, director Nikolaj Arcel’s movie picks and chooses aspects from multiple books in the series, leaving fans wondering what they’re in for when the movie finally hits theaters.

Now Arcel has confirmed something King himself hinted at over a year ago: The Dark Tower movie is actually a continuation of the story that began in King’s novels. Read on to find out more, but beware – spoilers lie ahead.

The Dark Tower TV Spots

Sony Pictures is bringing the long-awaited adaptation of Stephen King‘s book series The Dark Tower to theater at the beginning of August. The first trailer for the sci-fi western was more confusing than anything, especially for anyone who isn’t familiar with the book series, though our trailer breakdown may have helped a bit.

Now some TV spots for The Dark Tower have started hitting the small screen, presumably taking advantage of the audience watching the NBA Finals, and while they don’t really do much to explain the story more, they do show off more of Idris Elba slinging guns like a badass while Matthew McConaughey threatens to turn the world into hell.
