The first poster has arrived for The Dark Tower, an adaptation of the Stephen King book series. The tagline, “There are other worlds than these,” will be familiar to fans of the books. And the flipping of buildings will be familiar to fans of Inception or Doctor Strange.
The film stars Idris Elba as Roland Deschain, a man on a quest to reach The Dark Tower and save an alternate dimension called Mid-World. Standing in his way is The Man in Black (Matthew McConaughey).
Directed by Nikolaj Arcel, The Dark Tower will be in theaters on July 28th.
Jake Chambers (Tom Taylor) is a young 11-year-old adventure seeker who discovers clues about another dimension called Mid-World. Upon following the mystery, he is spirited away to Mid-World where he encounters the lone frontiersman knight Roland Deschain (Idris Elba), who is on a quest to reach the ‘Dark Tower’ that resides in End-World and reach the nexus point between time and space that he hopes will save Mid-World from extinction. But with various monsters and a vicious sorcerer named Walter Padick (Matthew McConaughey) hot on their trail, the unlikely duo find that their quest may be difficult to complete.
