Their War Rages On in New International Trailer for 'The Dark Tower'
"The tower is all that stands between light and darkness…" Sony has revealed a brand new "international" trailer for The Dark Tower adaptation, based on Stephen King's popular book series. Directed by Danish filmmaker Nikolaj Arcel, this gritty sci-fi western is about a legendary "Gunslinger" roaming an Old West-like landscape in pursuit of the Man in Black, who wants to destroy the fabled Tower. Idris Elba stars as Roland Deschain, with Matthew McConaughey as the Man in Black. Also starring Abbey Lee, Jackie Earle Haley, Fran Kranz, Tom Taylor, Katheryn Winnick, Alex McGregor, Nicholas Hamilton, Claudia Kim, and Michael Barbieri. This is honestly looking better and better with every trailer. And you know - even if this movie isn't that great, I still think Idris Elba is a totally badass gunslinger. Love him.
Here's the second international trailer for Nikolaj Arcel's The Dark Tower, direct from Sony's YouTube:
The Gunslinger, Roland Deschain (Elba), roams an Old West-like landscape where "the world has moved on" in pursuit of the man in black (McConaughey).

The Dark Tower adaptation is directed by Danish filmmaker Nikolaj Arcel, of the films King's Game, Island of Lost Souls, Truth About Men, and A Royal Affair previously.
