So, we finally have our first images of Roland Deschain, the last Gunslinger, in Stephen King’s epic tale of The Dark Tower as played by Idris Elba in the first movie of a planned series.
And it’s hard to argue that Elba doesn’t fill the role well, he certainly has Roland’s presence of character and dominating strength.
The story sees Roland pursuing The Man In Black AKA Walter AKA Flagg (played in the movie by Matthew McConaughey) across the desert in his quest to find The Dark Tower, the nexus of space and time.
Let us know what you think and what you hope to see in the adaptation of King’s sprawling masterpiece.
The Dark Tower is set to be directed by Nikolaj Arcel with a February 17th, 2017 release
