Finally headed our way after several versions failed to ignite, the cinematic adaptation of Stephen King's epic The Dark Tower series is finally heading to screens.
The Dark Tower promises a subtly different origin story for the conflict between Roland Deschain, know as The Gunslinger (Idris Elba), and warlock Walter, The Man In Black (Matthew McConaughey), who brought chaos and destruction to a realm known as Mid-World. Walter's current target is the Dark Tower, which maintains order in the various realms and multiverses, and Deschain's target is... Walter.
The first movie finds Walter on the hunt for Jake Chambers (Tom Taylor) who posses 'The Shine' (you might recognise the power from another slightly well known King story), which could help destroy the Tower's support and allow Walter to bring his particular brand of apocalypse to other realms.
The Dark Tower will arrive in cinemas 28 July.
