The Dark Tower poster surfaces

And there is also Idris Elba's Gunslinger Roland Deschain and the boy adventurer Jake, played by Tom Taylor. He is on a quest to reach the mysterious Dark Tower in his pursuit of an evil sorcerer called Walter Padick, aka the man in black (Matthew McConaughey). Making its way out via Matthew McConaughey's Twitter account, the poster offers a hint at the intriguing world where the movie, based on Stephen King's book series of the same name, takes place, AceShowbiz reports. Starring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey in the lead, The Dark Tower is directed by Nikolaj Arcel, known for directing 2012 film A Royal Affair.

The first poster for "The Dark Tower" has been released. Let's instead celebrate the fact that The Dark Tower finally got a poster, and that it's actually pretty clever and features zero floating heads. Located in the fey region of End-World, amid a sea of singing red roses, the Dark Tower is the nexus point of the time-space continuum.

The first global teaser poster has been unveiled for The Dark Tower - a live-action adaptation of the most ambitious and expansive story from best-selling author Stephen King.

"The Dark Tower" is set to hit USA theaters on July 28. Nikolaj Arcel directs the movie and co-writes the screenplay along with Akiva Goldsman, Anders Thomas Jensen and Jeff Pinkner.

In the books, Roland is something of a wandering knight, the last of his kind on a journey to save Mid-World.
