First Official Look At 'The Dark Tower' & New EW Covers

By Matt O.

Entertainment Weekly has just revealed it's brand new Comic-Con preview issue with a kickass New cover featuring Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey As The Gunslinger and The Man In Black From the upcoming Stephen King adaptation of The Dark Tower. Along with that Idris Elba discusses his character and we have a pair of official images from the film.

Idris Elba on his character: 

"When we meet Roland he’s a bit lost. He’s been walking around for a long time, so he definitely feels like a man who’s...coiled. I like to bring a little depth and bring a real character. And what’s been fun is, Nik’s really up for that. So we do takes that are a little bit more commercial, if you like, and we do takes that are f***ing deep, like we’re making an independent film. It’s an iconic character. I want to get it right."
