OFFICIAL: First Trailer For 'The Dark Tower' Arrives Wednesday

18

UPDATE (May 2): Sony have officially announced that the trailer will arrive on Wednesday, with motion posters landing on Facebook and a trio of announcement teases from Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba on Twitter, as well as Sony’s YouTube:

This follows yesterday’s update that Deluxe Digital Cinema have sent the trailer out to North American cinemas this week, presumably to play with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (there are no specific placement requests on file). We will be sure to have it here as soon as it arrives online.

Original post follows:


After a workprint trailer leak last October and a delay of the film’s release from February to July before finally settling on August, our first official look at Nikolaj Arcel’s adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower is finally on the way. Consumer Protection BC have rated the first trailer tonight, and based on the timing we expect it to arrive in the next week, in time for the North American release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Fans will also be happy to know that based on the runtime this appears to be a full trailer as opposed to a teaser, which would be long overdue by this point.

N.B. CPBC have also rated a ‘Trailer #3’ – but we expect these to just be 2D and 3D versions of the same trailer respectively as opposed to two different trailers with different footage.

As always, we will have the trailer here once it’s launched online, and update on any further details, such as placement confirmation for Guardians or official announcements, when available.

The last Gunslinger, Roland Deschain, has been locked in an eternal battle with Walter O’Dim, also known as the Man in Black, 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.

Starring Idris Elba, Matthew McConaughey and Tom Taylor, The Dark Tower is released in the U.S. on August 4, followed by the UK on August 18.
