The movie adaptation of Stephen King’s epic tale is almost here. Starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey, The Dark Tower is poised to become a great franchise. But that’s only if people actually go see the film. Although a lack of marketing may indicate a lack of confidence by the filmmakers, it might be best to not know the plot of the film. The Dark Tower is directed by Nikolaj Arcel, and also stars Tom Taylor and Jackie Earle Haley.

The Dark Tower hits theaters on August 4th, 2017.

There are other worlds than these. Stephen King’s The Dark Tower, the ambitious and expansive story from one of the world’s most celebrated authors, makes its launch to the big screen. The last Gunslinger, Roland Deschain (Idris Elba), has been locked in an eternal battle with Walter O’Dim, also known as the Man in Black (Matthew McConaughey), determined to prevent him from toppling the Dark Tower, which holds the universe together. With the fate of the worlds at stake, good and evil will collide in the ultimate battle as only Roland can defend the Tower from the Man in Black.
