Many of the movie adaptations of Stephen King's works have worked its way into being classic stuff. The prime examples of which are The Shining, The Green Mile and Stand By Me. Now perhaps 2017 will have another entry in that esteemed club with the reinterpretation of his famous work, The Dark Tower. Starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey in the lead, The Dark Tower is directed by Nikolaj Arcel, known for directing 2012 film A Royal Affair. Check out the first look of the movie above.
The poster has a very intriguing feature to it. At the first look, you will notice it is an upside down of a street with high rise buildings. However, the gap they form makes another tower, which could be the dark tower the title is referring to. If you observe closely, you will also see Idris Elba and a kid looking above at the bottom of the poster, while Matthew McConaughey can be seen on the top of the poster walking on the street, upside down of course.
The Dark Tower is actually a series of novels written by Stephen King known for the adventures, while the movie is supposed to be kind of sequel to The Dark Tower book series, continuing from the ending of The Dark Tower VII: The Dark Tower. Idris Elba, the star of movies like Thor series, Beasts of No Nation and Star Trek Beyond, plays the hero Roland Deschain, a knight in another dimension who works around his way with two revolvers, while Matthew McConaughey plays a cruel sorcerer and the main antagonist.
The Dark Tower is scheduled to release on July 28.
