The Dark Tower TV spots pit the Gunslinger against the Man In Black

The battle is on in new TV spots for The Dark Tower

Three new TV spots for The Dark Tower have arrived, one focusing on Idris Elba’s Roland Deschain, one following Matthew McConaughey’s whistling devil The Man In Black, and one offering a little more plot (and new footage).



Yeah, we’re still not tired of hearing Idris Elba do the “I do not aim with my hand…” speech, and we’re not sure if we ever will be.

You can read the official synopsis for The Dark Tower here:

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.

The Dark Tower stars Idris Elba as Roland Deschain, Matthew McConaughey as Walter O’Dim, Jackie Earle Hayley (Watchmen, Preacher) as vampire Sayre, Abbey Lee (Mad Max:Fury Road, The Neon Demon) as Tirana, Tom Taylor as Jake Chambers, Fran Kranz (Cabin In The Woods, Bloodsucking Bosses) as Pimli and Claudia Kim (Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Marco Polo) as Arra Champignon. Arcel wrote the script with Akiva Goldsman and Anders Thomas Jensen.
