    You Need To See Idris Elba And Matthew McConaughey In The First "Dark Tower" Trailer

    "He's like the devil, isn't he?" "No. He's worse."

    It's been just over a year since Dark Tower fans got the long awaited news they'd been pining for – that the film adaptation of the eight-novel series by Stephen King was finally happening, and that they'd cast Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey in the leads.

    It's official: The man in black fled across the desert and the gunslinger followed. #DarkTowerMovie @McConaughey @IdrisElba

    Well it's been a long old wait, but we now finally have posters to get excited about.

    One sworn to destroy it. @McConaughey is the Man in Black #DarkTowerMovie
