The Dark Tower is a movie that appeared to be in some sort of hellish limbo. There were images but everything has been very quiet for months now. Yesterday we finally learned that the trailer for a movie that is just over three months away from coming out is finally being released and today stars Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey posted two brief teasers to twitter. So, footage exists which means that this movie must exists, right? We can all get our hopes up that this is a thing that is going to happen one way or another? We’re all a little nervous because everything has been so quiet for what could be a huge release but now there is footage. We have seen it with our own two eyes and look for the trailer tomorrow.
The Gunslinger, Roland Deschain, roams an Old West-like landscape where “the world has moved on” in pursuit of the man in black. Also searching for the fabled Dark Tower, in the hopes that reaching it will preserve his dying world.
The Dark Tower will be released on August 4, 2017.
