Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey Look Like Rom-Com Frenemies in the New ‘Dark Tower’ International Poster
You know those early 2000s romantic comedies that always had the two leads standing back-to-back with “WELP” expressions on their faces on the DVD covers? Imagine that, but with Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey and you’ve got the newest international poster for The Dark Tower.
The Dark Tower, based on Stephen King’s bestselling fantasy series, details the war between two world that somehow finds its way into our own. The Gunslinger (because he carries guns, see) is questing to find the legendary Dark Tower, while the Man in Black (because he — you get it) is trying to destroy it. Sounds like rom-com fuel to me. Take a look at the new poster below:
That says “The Dark Tower,” trust me.
There are other worlds than these. Stephen King’s The Dark Tower, the ambitious and expansive story from one of the world’s most celebrated authors, makes its launch to the big screen. The last Gunslinger, Roland Deschain (Idris Elba), has been locked in an eternal battle with Walter O’Dim, also known as the Man in Black (Matthew McConaughey), 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.
The Dark Tower hits theaters August 4.
