Stephen King's "The Dark Tower" rolls out the 1st poster

Stephen King attends a pre-concert

Never one to conform to any specific genre, The Dark Tower will take fans on an intense journey through a story that will test their ability to pay attention and keep track. The movie will act as something of a sequel to the book series, with some familiar characters and an all new story.

The film, which is seen as a continuation of the series rather than an outright adaption, sees Roland Deschain, the last gunslinger of Mid-World travel across a post-apocalyptic landscape.

The poster was also shared by Matthew McConaughey, who plays the antagonist in the upcoming film. Perhaps the coolest part about the poster though is that if you look at the silhouette created by the buildings, it actually resembles the titular tower.

A few days ago we brought you the news that Stephen king had seen THE DARK TOWER film and said it was "Terrific". This time, though, the resolution could be different as he has an artifact called the Horn of Eld. Now perhaps 2017 will have another entry in that esteemed club with the reinterpretation of his famous work, The Dark Tower.

After Warner Bros backed out of bankrolling the project and Ron Howard lost interest in directing, Sony were the ones who stepped up with the cash, and Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair) slipped behind the camera to helm the Stephen King adaptation.

The movie also stars "Vikings" actress Katheryn Winnick as Laurie Chambers, "The Neon Demon" star Abbey Lee as Tirana and Jackie Earle Haley from "Watchmen" as Sayre.
