Sony Pictures has released the first official trailer for the summer blockbuster The Dark Tower. Directed by Nicolaj Arcel, the film is based on Stephen King's novel series of the same name and focuses on the fight to save The Tower, a piece of architecture that was built to protect both Earth and an alternate dimension, Mid-World. As highlighted in the 3-minute teaser clip, the duty to save our world rests upon gunslinger Roland Deschain (Idris Elba) and Jake Chambers (Tom Taylor). Together, they must defeat the villainous 'man in black' played by Oscar winner, Matthew McConaughey.

The Dark Tower is scheduled for release on August 4, 2017. Also, don't miss the trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
