Sony Pictures released a featurette for ‘The Dark Tower’ Sunday night, explaining the history and the power of the Gunslinger. Idris Elba brings a moxie to the role of the Gunslinger that is intoxicating. If we get a ‘True Detective’ performance from Matthew McConaughey as the Man in Black, ‘The Dark Tower’ could be a true gem of the 2017 summer blockbuster season.
