Stephen King reveals attractive first poster for The Dark Tower

Posted March 20, 2017

However, the gap they form makes another tower, which could be the dark tower the title is referring to.

It's nicely designed. Hopefully there'll be a first trailer for us to look at soon, too. In The Dark Tower, Jake, played by Tom Taylor, is an 11-year-old boy who discovers clues pointing him towards another dimension called Mid-World. Now, let's have one more look at that poster. This is a step in the right direction, and for that we say thankee.

Stars Idris Elba (as the gunslinging Roland) and Matthew McConaughey (as the villainous Man in Black) appear on the bottom and top of the poster, respectively. We've got our two heroes aganst the world, The Gunslinger standing with guns drawn, and a twisted take on New York City (which figures heavily in the plot).

The Dark Tower is actually a series of novels written by Stephen King known for the adventures, while the movie is supposed to be kind of sequel to The Dark Tower book series, continuing from the ending of The Dark Tower VII: The Dark Tower.

After Warner Bros backed out of bankrolling the project and Ron Howard lost interest in directing, Sony were the ones who stepped up with the cash, and Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair) slipped behind the camera to helm the Stephen King adaptation.

The film, which is seen as a continuation of the series rather than an outright adaption, sees Roland Deschain, the last gunslinger of Mid-World travel across a post-apocalyptic landscape.
