New Dark Tower Movie Teasers Promise A Spectacular Showdown

Two high-profile Stephen King movie adaptations are on the way in 2017–the remake of horror classic It arrrives in September, and before that, we have the much-anticipated adaptation of King’s fantasy classic The Dark Tower. Two new TV spots have now landed, and as before they focus on the conflict between the Gunslinger (Idris Elba) and The Man in Black (Matthew McConaughey). Check them out below:

These new promos follow the full trailer, which was released last month. The movie also features Tom Taylor as young protagonist Jake, plus Katheryn Winnick (Vikings), Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen), Dennis Haysbert (24), and Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road). It’s directed by Nikolaj Arcel.

The Dark Tower was originally set to hit theaters in February, but the release date was subsequently moved to the summer. At the time, it was reported that the ambitious post-production process meant that hitting a February release would have added millions to the budget, so Sony decided to delay the film instead.

There has also been talk of a Dark Tower TV show. In September, it was reported that an adaptation of 1997’s Wizard and Glass, the fourth book in King’s epic series, is being planned.

However, more recently, producer Ron Howard stated that while a show is in development, it was far from definite. “[There’s] not a commitment on the television side,” he told TV Guide in April. “But creatively, it could work very well, hand in hand with what we’d like the movies to be.”

The Dark Tower hits theaters on August 4, 2017.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
