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.

Director has forgotten the face of his father!

Haven't read the book but I'm still gonna watch this film lol I really don't care about the major changes
Dave Ryerson
This looks terrible. It's like someone told them about the King books, and they said, "Yeah. We're not doing that. We'll throw in a couple lines from the books, and it will be good. Use the rest of this other script we have."
Alejandro Mujica
1:50 the plaster man from vol.3!!
Ashes Mandalay
So we know the tower falls anyway and they come to NYC in the third act for a final showdown. Thanks for killing the tension of the movie, movie trailer.
For a minute I thought The Gunslinger was the rich guy with the yacht from Fear The Walking Dead
Crazy Wolfgang
Idris Elba will do this movie justice.

What a disgrace! A black man playing an abvious white role. Totally ruined this series of books for me, who in the world who read the books hadn't pictured Roland as a Clint Eastwood type. Even illustrations in the books ALL have Roland as a brooding white cowboy figure. So how on Facebook earth did they choose a Black Pommy!!!! as Roland??????
Haidar Fadhil
i love the trailer
Edward Moran
I wont be seeing this movie specificly because they chose a Black actor for a specificly White Role. Lots of other wont be either but (((Holywood))) cares far more about their agenda then they do money. LOL I wouldn't watch it for free.

Hollywood board rooms have killed the movie industry. Leave the marketing teams out of the creative process... ( same goes with the gaming industry).
Hirdesh Jaiswal
Finally son it's gonna happen. Huge fan of idris
Afro Kazama
This movie looks hype
Krystel Thamrin
Wtf? The Dark Tower is unadaptable...
A Kid in King Arthur's Court reboot?
Javier Del Toro
so uh

Stephen King himself said that a major requirement is how quick the actor's draw is. Race is not of any concern.

1:50 "Did you tell the kid that whoever walks with you dies by my hand?"
"Be a lot cooler if you did"
Joseph Diforte
I wonder what it would've been like if the guy who plays the gunslinger had been deadshot. He looks more intimidating than Will Smith.
hmm... 0:22 Enyo Morricone - Carillon, from For A Few Dollars More.
Maybe Sixty Seconds To What? can be expected too. I am not sure if that's a good thing or bad.
Gregory Craig
I'm so sick of the idots in the comments... what is hard to grasp... it's a sequel to the books and if u had a actually read the books as u claim u would know why this make sense... also would explain why Roland could b black... also why some things might have changed or is done in different order or not done at all... Jesus people stop ur bullshit and enjoy the new journey u stupid assclowns
I don't mind that the main character is black, but it seams that he is black just for diversity. I understand why fans of the original series don't like this change as it strays from the original Steven King vision and they could of gotten more actors that fit this appearance. Only time will tell if this movie is good or not, and there is no reason to hope it won't be! :)
Big Stuff
We don't need anymore guns in the hands of black folks.
Reto Berna
The less informed people are on this comment section, the more self-righteous they seem to be.
This picks up where book 7 ended. There will be sequels with Eddie & Suze. The series will be done justice to.
Gio Zibzibadze
why the niBBa ?
Connor Deschain
this'll be interesting, granted it seems like the movie scrapes out some things but that can be expected through any movie adaptation let alone one with a such a long series. But, they don't show anything with Eddie or Oddeta/Detta/Susanna (sorry if I butched the spelling) they also didn't mention Susan or that whole book at all in any major way. I think the movie is going to be good but an iffy adaptation from the book but I suppose we'll have to wait and see
I'll see it. And I'll like it. And I'll hate it for pissing on one of my favorite all-time series.

I'll reserve judgement till I see it and I'm not a book purist or anything AND I know that they angled it as a "sequel" to the books.

All that being said, I watch this trailer and see Roland in a fight scene with Walter while his voice over is the gunslinger's code/mantra/whatever and I feel like the people who made this movie don't understand the meaning behind those words at all.

If you have read the books, just think about how Eddie (who is not in the movie, boo) defeats Blaine the Mono. Then watch the stuff that plays while that voice over is happening...yeah my expectations are low. Hope it surprises me though. :/

For people that are complaining about how long the movie should be or that should be a tv series, you are not entitled for the industry to do as you say. You already read the books, you got your money worth, and the experience, be kind to one another and mature a bit while your at it.
Jay Lin
No Oy? I cannot wait though!!!! Yassssss!
You can't condense a series of books into a 2 hour movie and expected to do it justice. If anything it might get people to read the original source. If you want it to be like the books you need to make it a TV show and even then it won't be exactly like the books.
K...But when are they going to make a Michael Vey Movie ??
Mike Brooks
A movie from one of my favorite series ever? Dreams do come true... Hope it's a good one!
I can't friggin wait!!
Pierre-Luc Mayer
This fucking sucks! And is fucking awesome at the same time. Can't wait!
I'm phukin ancient :D
I read these books as they were released, and now this movie opens on my 50th birthday. What a gift :)

Too bad there's not enough time to listen to all the audio books again before this movie comes out.
the man in black fled across the desert and the gunslinger followed
Benjamin Long
The amount of people who don't know this is a sequel is appalling. Just chill.
Benjamin Long
A few seconds after 1:49 you can see the mansion in its form where it chases Jake. The more I watch this trailer, the more similarities I find.
Razvan Popa
Yet another movie to stand testimony for one simple fact: most humans don't read.
Just from the trailer you can tell that they took enormous liberties with the story's plot. I am skeptical at best.
Eric 3peat
The Dark Tower is going to be Awesome it's look familiar to The Matrix type like The Lost Boys.
Wow this might be better then his maximum overdrive movie.
