THE DARK TOWER Posters Featuring Roland Deschain and the Man in Black July 5, 2017 “I do not kill with my gun… I kill with my heart” Sony Pictures has released two new character one-sheets for the Stephen King adaptation starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey. Based on the epic best-selling novels by Stephen King, THE DARK TOWER tells the story of Roland Deschain (Elba), Mid-World’s last gunslinger, who is traveling southeast across Mid-World’s post-apocalyptic landscape, searching for the powerful but elusive magical edifice known as The Dark Tower. Located in the fey region of End-World, amid a sea of singing red roses, the Dark Tower is the nexus point of the time-space continuum. It is the heart of all worlds, but it is also under threat. Someone, or something, is using the evil technology of the Great Old Ones to destroy it. Irish release date is August 18, 2017.
