I kill with my heart…

Holy heck! We finally have official footage from The Dark Tower thanks to Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba on Twitter and it certainly looks stylish as hell… although we hope that bit with the Gunslinger (Elba) catching the bullets is actually in reverse and he’s dropping them because that’s a bit much, even for Roland Deschain!

Anyway, the trailer is dropping tomorrow and you know where to come to find it!

Check out the first footage below and let us know if you’re looking forward to crossing Midworld with Roland and Jake and the Man in Black flees across the desert.

The Dark Tower is being directed by Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair) and stars Idris Elba (Luther) as Roland Deschain, Matthew McConaughey (Interstellar) as the Man in Black, Tom Taylor (Doctor Foster) as Jake Chambers, Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road) as Tirana, Fran Kranz (The Cabin in the Woods) as Pimli, Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen) as Richard Sayre, Michael Barbieri (Little Men) as Timmy, Claudia Kim (Avengers: Age of Ultron) as Arra Champignon and Katheryn Winnick (Vikings) as Laurie Chambers.

It will be released on August 4th, 2017.

And Sony themselves have also taken to Twitter to inform us that the the full trailer will (finally!) arrive tomorrow..

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
