More and more, I’m getting real excited for The Dark Tower. The latest trailer, which dropped today, only furthered my anticipation.
Here’s the synopsis:
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.
I haven’t gotten a vibe from a film like this since the first time I saw The Matrix trailer. Something about this world crossing gun play and cool characters really has my attention.
It comes to theaters Aug. 4.
