After what seemed like an eternity of waiting, Sony Pictures has finally released the trailer for ‘The Dark Tower’ based on Stephen King’s popular series of novels.

The trailer introduces the world where Gunslingers are knights seeking to protect the tower from the darkness of evil. A teenage kid named Jake gets transported from our world to another where he meets up with Idris Elba’s character in-order to help protect the tower as this tower protects both worlds, if it falls then hell will be unleashed, which is what The Man in Black wants to pursue. The trailer offers some nice world building, cool action sequences and some stellar visuals.

‘The Dark Tower’ is set to debut in cinemas on August 4th in the USA, and August 17th in Australia.
