The official trailer for Stephen King’s, The Dark Tower has just dropped and it looks damn impressive
I have said it before, it is a good time to be Stephen King!. With movie adaptations already in the can with Andrés Muschietti’s IT reboot and now Nikolaj Arcel’s The Dark Tower. I think we can now safely say we’re getting the Stephen King movies that we all deserve. For years, his excellent horror novels have been crucified, butchered and plagued with straight-to-tv remakes (obviously there is still some greats) but 2017 looks to be “The Year Of The King”.
Director/writer Nikolaj Arcel is one of the finest directors in European crime cinema. He has directed and written some amazing crime classics such as The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, The Department Q trilogy (Department Q: The Keeper of Lost Causes, Department Q: A Conspiracy of Faith, The Absent One). I couldn’t recommend these movies enough, I hope if you’re reading this then you hunt down and watch those movies that I have just mentioned. above
The Dark Tower stars Matthew McConaughey as The Man In Black and Idris Elba as The Gunslinger. I am not familiar with the story of the novel as I am not a big reader (I wish I was). I think the trailer looks great and doesn’t give too much away in regards to the plot.
TWO CHARACTER POSTER WERE ALSO RECENTLY RELEASED
Roland Deschain (Idris Elba), the last Gunslinger, is locked in an eternal battle with Walter O’Dim (Matthew McConaughey), also known as the Man in Black. The Gunslinger must prevent the Man in Black from toppling the Dark Tower, the key that holds the universe together. With the fate of worlds at stake, two men collide in the ultimate battle between good and evil.
THANKS FOR READING. HOPE YOU ENJOY THE TRAILER
