The synopsis for the film is as follows:
Jake Chambers is a young 11-year-old adventure seeker who discovers clues about another dimension called Mid-World. Upon following the mystery, he is spirited away to Mid-World where he encounters the lone frontiersman knight Roland Deschain, who is on a quest to reach the ‘Dark Tower’ that resides in End-World and reach the nexus point between time and space that he hopes will save Mid-World from extinction. But with various monsters and a vicious sorcerer named Walter Padick hot on their trail, the unlikely duo find that their quest may be difficult to complete.
Finally with the film only a few months away from its cinematic release, Sony remember that they have to promote it and release the first trailer. I thought the trailer was decent, hopefully the film doesn’t rely heavily on the special effects. Idris Elba as Roland could potentially be a great big screen character, as could Matthew McConaughey’s portrayal of the man in black, though the ladder is barely used much in this first trailer.
The Dark Tower is scheduled for cinematic release on the 4th August 2017.
