Based on the novels by Stephen King, The Dark Tower movie is finally headed our way on August 4th. Sony has released the first trailer for the movie, and it has a lot of guns. A lot of guns.

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.

I’ve not read any of the Dark Tower series, mainly because of my concerns on how King ends his stories, but the trailer definitely has me interested in the source material and how much deviation between book and screen will occur.

What are you reactions to this trailer? Are you on board, or are you going to avoid this adaptation like the plague?
