WATCH IT WHILE YOU CAN! Leaked rough trailer for The Dark Tower is here

October 11th, 2016 by Marc Comments


So, here’s a leaked version of the Dark Tower trailer, folks…

Now, this is being removed everywhere and fast, so, if it’s gone, here’s the description of what is occurring in it thanks to Dark horizons:

Set to a downbeat version of The Who’s “Behind Blue Eyes,” the focus is mostly on the young kid Jake who is having visions of another world and seeing destruction come to our reality, at the same time Matthew McConaughey’s Man In Black wanders around New York and is working on some sort of occult-like table. Jake finds an abandoned house just like in one of his sketches, goes inside, activates some kind of computer system and disappears into a portal in the wall – emerging in a rocky desert.

That’s when Idris Elba’s Gunslinger comes in and lives up to his name, Elba going full cowboy with his six-shooters. McConaughey says the line: “Did you tell the kid that everyone who walks with you dies by my hand”. Elba and Jake are then back in New York with Elba saying “The war is over and we lost” to which Jake responds “your world might be gone, but mine isn’t.” There’s a brief shot of the tower itself, black and tall against a swirling fiery cloud formation.

Cut to fights between Elba and the Man in Black’s minions in various Earth buildings and structures including a Resident Evil-esque dragon beastie. Elba says “I do not aim with my head, I aim with my eye. I do not kill with my gun, I kill with my heart.” Cut to credits.

Sticking with the trailer, we had heard it would be released later this month (here) but now Chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment Motion Picture Group, Tom Rothman has said it’ll be Christmas before it debuts.

So watch this while you can, because the official is still a couple of months away…

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….
