‘The Dark Tower’ trailer is almost here…

And ahead of its release tomorrow, we’ve got some new motion posters.

‘The Dark Tower’ is one of the most highly-anticipated of all Stephen King’s adaptations… and it looks as though we’ll get our first real glimpse of the upcoming movie tomorrow. But if you just can’t wait to see Roland and the Man in Black in action, we’ve got some cool new motion posters to paw over until then.

And they’re pretty cool.

‘The Dark Tower’ tells the story of Roland Deschain, Mid-World’s last gunslinger who happens to be travelling across the post-apocalyptic land in search of The Dark Tower.

It’s the nexus point of the entire space-time continuum, and it’s the heart of all worlds… but the Tower is under threat, with someone (or something) using the power of the Old Gods to destroy it.

Pretty cool, huh? And this is just a small tease of what’s in store tomorrow, when the full official trailer finally drops, and we get a much better look at ‘The Dark Tower’.

Of course, we’re all excited – including the film’s stars.

And it looks as though Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey have been getting into character over on Twitter… and it’s already sending shivers down my spine.

Their exchange concludes with two short clips, featuring Roland literally slinging bullets into his open revolvers, with the elusive Man in Black stalking the post-apocalyptic landscape.

Now we just have to wait for the full trailer tomorrow.

‘The Dark Tower’ stars Idris Elba, Tom Taylor, Nicolas Hamilton, Katheryn Winnick, Matthew McConaughey, Jackie Earle Hayley, Abbey Lee, and Claudia Kim.

Nikolaj Arcel directed the movie based on a script he co-wrote with Akiva Goldsman, Anders Thomas Jensen, and Jeff Pinkner.

‘The Dark Tower’ heads to cinemas on 18 August 2017.
