Director Nikolaj Arcel’s newie, the Stephen King adaptation of The Dark Tower, drops a new international trailer. This was originally a long gestating project that Ron Howard wanted to helm and could never get it moving on the budget he needed. Arcel has managed it and the question is: Will this entry be strong enough to kick start the franchise that Sony are hoping it will become?
Synopsis: 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.
