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.

The Dark Tower stars Idris Elba as Roland the Gunslinger, Matthew McConaughey as the Man in Black, and Tom Taylor as Jake. The film also features Katheryn Winnick, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Alex McGregor, Claudia Kim, Jackie Earle Haley, and José Zúñiga.
