The Dark Tower Featurette

"I'm sword to defend the tower, I'll stop at nothing to protect it." Sony has debuted a new featurette for The Dark Tower movie, adapted from Stephen King's book series. Directed by Danish filmmaker Nikolaj Arcel, this cinematic version of the story is more sci-fi than fantasy, about a Gunslinger roaming an Old West-like landscape in pursuit of the man in black. The featurette gives a basic introduction to Idris Elba as the "Gunslinger" Roland Deschain, and his nemesis, Matthew McConaughey as the Man in Black. The full cast includes Abbey Lee, Jackie Earle Haley, Fran Kranz, Tom Taylor, Katheryn Winnick, Alex McGregor, Nicholas Hamilton, Claudia Kim, and Michael Barbieri. There's tons of new footage in this featurette and you know, I actually think it looks damn good. I'm down for some ass kicking gunslingin'.

Here's the featurette on "The Legacy of the Gunslinger" from The Dark Tower, via 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. The screenplay is credited to Nikolaj Arcel, Akiva Goldsman, Anders Thomas Jensen, and Jeff Pinkner. Based on Stephen King's novel of the same name, first published 1982, now a series of 7 books. Sony Pictures will open The Dark Tower in theaters starting August 4th later this summer. Who's ready?

It's such a badass Idris Elba, and a great choice to play the gunslinger, but still have my doubts how in heavens name they can pull it off with such mega opus story fit in one movie. I get that there will be multiple movies when it's a success, but it's necessary this is a succes... Keeping my fingers crossed, because i certainly hope so..

I'm not holding my breath. This movie will be all show and no substance. Mark my work. I can smell it miles away.

If it's a good show no problem with it. It comes with balance of the script...

As long as this plays like a Western I will dig it.
