First Trailer for ‘The Dark Tower’ with Idris Elba & Matthew McConaughey

The Nikolaj Arcel-Directed Film

“I do not kill with my gun… I kill with my hart.” Sony Pictures has released the first trailer for the epic adaptation of Stephen King’s book series, The Dark Tower, which puts Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey on opposite sides of good and evil.

The Nikolaj Arcel-directed film also stars Tom Taylor and Katheryn Winnick and is about a Gunslinger roaming an Old West-like landscape in pursuit of the man in black. Akiva Goldsman, Anders Thomas Jensen, Arcel, and Jeff Pinkner  wrote the script that is more sci-fi than fantasy. If done right, it could be the next big genre franchise.

The Dark Tower will open in theaters starting August 4th. Check out the first official trailer below, plus two new character posters in a gallery below.

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.
