The Dark Tower “tells the story of Roland Deschain (Elba), the Mid-World’s last gunslinger, who travels across the post-apocalyptic landscape in search of the magical edifice known as the Dark Tower, the nexus point of the space-time continuum.”
Matthew McConaughey will star alongside Elba as the Man in Black. The movie is scheduled to hit theaters on January 13, 2017.
