The Dark Tower series tells the story of Roland Deschain, 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.

In Roland’s where and when the world has already begun to move on. Time and direction are in drift, and the fabric of reality is fraying. However, things are about to get much worse. The six invisible magnetic Beams, which maintain the alignment of time, space, size, and dimension, are weakening.

Because of this, the Tower itself is foundering. Unless Roland can find a way to save the Beams and stabilize the Tower, all of reality will blink out of existence.

Entertainment Weekly has released exclusive first-look images on the set of The Dark Tower. I am a big fan of Stephen King, so I’m always excited when one of his works are adapted into films. I am excited for Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey; they are two of my favorite actors.

Lately, Elba has been making quite a scene in the cinema industry, traveling lightly into the dark scene of horror cinema: The Reaping, Prom Night, The Unborn, and Prometheus. The leading role of “Roland Deschain” definitely fits Elba’s acting personality.

Matthew McConaughey hasn’t been seen much in horror cinema, nor does he have a dark persona per-say, but he is definitely an Action-Adventure kind of guy, so I think he will fit in well. I am anxious to see how he pulls off the “Man in Black”.

The Dark Tower will release February 17, 2017.
