FIRST LOOK: THE DARK TOWER

The Dark Tower is Stephen King’s ambitious, expansive and multi-genre crossing series.  Fans have waited anxiously for a television or film adaptation.  Idris Elba plays Roland Deschain, the last Gunslinger, determined to prevent Matther McConaughey’s Man in Black- Walter O’Dim, from toppling the physical and metaphorical Dark Tower.  The destruction of the universe is at stake in this eternal battle.  The film also stars Tom Taylor, Claudia Kim, Fran Kranz, Abbey Lee, and Jackie Earle Haley.  The film is directed by Nikolaj Arcel, and produced by Akiva Goldsman, Ron Howard, and Erica Huggins.
