The highly anticipated film adaptation of The Dark Tower has just released a new international trailer. Based on the series of novels of the same name by Stephen King. The film has been stated to not be a typical adaptation, but more of a new take on the series. Director and co-writer Nikolaj Arcel has said that fans will know the movie is a sequel to the book series.
Official Synopsis: Jake Chambers (Tom Taylor) is an 11-year-old adventure seeker who discovers clues about another dimension called Mid-World. Upon following the mystery, he is spirited away to Mid-World where he encounters a Gunslinger, Roland Deschain (Idris Elba), who is on a quest to reach the “Dark Tower” that resides in End-World and reach the nexus point between time and space that he hopes will save all existence from extinction. But with various monsters and a vicious sorcerer named Walter Padick (Matthew McConaughey) hot on their trail, the unlikely duo find that their quest may be difficult to complete.
