Your second movie treat for today is the long awaited first trailer for Stephen King's latest adaptation THE DARK TOWER, a Ron Howard produced science fiction film highly stylized epic adventure, which should finally arrive into theatres across the world after many years of problematic production at the beginning of August!
ELUSIVE DARK TOWER
The story of the movie actually continues the one from the books rather than directly adapting one of them, and follows Idris Elba's The Gunslinger, Roland Deschain, who roams an Old West like and post apocalyptic landscape where "the world has moved on" in pursuit of the man in black played by Matthew McConaughey. Also searching for the fabled and powerful Dark Tower, in the hopes that reaching it will preserve his dying world. Located in the End World, amid a sea of singing red roses, the Dark Tower is a link to other worlds and a bridge in the time space continuum. The studio is envisioning this as a movie trilogy with two seasons of a TV series in between the films.
