added: Mon, Jun 26th '17

Sony Pictures has released a brand-new featurette for the upcoming film adaptation of Stephen King's beloved western fantasy thriller "The Dark Tower," which is offering a better glimpse into the legacy of Idris Elba's gunslinging knight character named 'Roland Deschain.'

The film follows mythical gunslinger Roland Deschain (he's the last in a long line of gunslingers) as he travels across dimensions in an attempt to protect a sacred tower structure from "Death" (played by Matthew McConaughey as the embodiment of the devil, known as 'The Man in Black').

Tom Taylor, Katheryn Winnick, Jackie Earle Haley, and Dennis Haysbert co-star.

Directed and co-adapted by acclaimed Danish filmmaker Nikolaj Arcel (2012's A Royal Affair), "The Dark Tower" opens in theaters on August 4th.

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.
