‘The Dark Tower’ Trailer: You’re A Gunslinger, Right?

I don’t know The Dark Tower at all, so I really have no idea how this trailer resonates with fans of the series. But! I hope ya’ll dig it.


The man in black fled across the desert and the gunslinger followed. After an epic wait — including will-they-or-won’t-they TV spinoff rumors and shifting release dates — the film adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower finally has a first trailer.

Yesterday we enjoyed the badass teasers for this trailer, and now we get to see weary gunslinger Idris Elba (and his Horn of Eld) go after Matthew McConaughey, who’s gone from chill college professor to the Man In Black for this western sci-fi fantasy hybrid, which also co-stars Katheryn Winnick, Abbey Lee, Tom Taylor, Fran Kranz (as Pimli Prentiss), and Jackie Earle Haley.
