Check Out the First Teaser Footage of the Stephen King Adaptation
We have a first glimpse of the hotly anticipated adaptation of Stephen King’s Dark Tower series, thanks to the stars Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey.
The first teaser features McConaughey’s Man in Black — the story’s villain — traversing a field filled with dead corpses. In the second, Elba, who stars as hero Roland Deschain (The Gunslinger) loads his revolver. Check out both videos, and some banter from the actors, below.
The Dark Tower hits theaters August 4th.
