An early draft of The Dark Tower trailer has leaked online! Watch it now!

1 min read


Ok, folks. Minimal words in this preamble, as there’s a fairly good chance that soon after this article is posted, the video below is going to get taken down. So let’s get straight to it: It appears that an early draft of the first trailer for the feature film adaptation of Stephen King’s epic The Dark Tower has leaked online. I don’t know the source, I don’t how it got there. All I know is that it looks awesome. Watch it now!

Well, damn. Even with those unfinished CGI shots and low res video, that still looks incredible. I have to point out though that despite the scenes that match up perfectly with set photos and could only come The Dark Tower, some are suspecting this is a fake trailer. Well, if it is, then Hollywood needs to hire whoever created this, because they are clearly master filmmakers.

The Dark Tower is directed by Nikiloaj Arcel who co-wrote the screenplay with Akiva Goldsman. It stars Idris Elba as the Gunslinger Roland Deschain, Matthew McConaughey as the evil Man In Black, and Tom Taylor as Jake Chambers, a New York boy who gets caught up in this interdimensional quest to save all of reality. It is scheduled for release on 17 February 2017.

    I wonder if I’ll be able to identify my flatmate in this without him pointing out the scenes 😛

    You know… I have tried to start reading The Dark Tower books around 5 times. Every time I can’t get past the first few chapters.

      If you can get through book 1, you’re find the rest to be MUCH easier to read.

      As short as it is, the first book is a slog. King wrote it when he was 18, so it’s far from the polished works he released later in his life.

        Explains why I find it so much different to his other works I’ve read and loved.

          There is a “remastered” version out as well of the 1st book, but from what I’ve heard, all he did was update the language a bit to match the dialect/lingo used by the Gunslinger in the later novels. So it’s probably still a slog to get through.

    And it’s gone. And someone probably lost their job for leaking it…
