Sony Pictures just released the first official international trailer for The Dark Tower, the sci-fi action film based on Stephen King’s popular book series. The cast is led by Idris Elba as Roland Deschain, Matthew McConaughey as Randall Flagg (aka The Man in Black), Tom Taylor as Jake Chambers, Abbey Lee as Tirana, Fran Kranz as Pimli, Jackie Earle Haley, and Katheryn Winnick. Akiva Goldsman, Jeff Pinkner, Anders Thomas Jensen, and Nikolaj Arcel adapted King’s story for the screen, with Arcel (A Royal Affair) directing.

The Plot: 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 (Elba), has been locked in an eternal battle with Walter O’Dim, also known as the Man in Black (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.
