“The tower is all that stands between light and darkness.” Sony Pictures has unveiled the best trailer yet for the Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey-led fantasy epic, hitting Irish cinemas August 18th.


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

Irish release date is August 18, 2017.
