Production on Nikolaj Arcel's adaptation of Stephen King's THE DARK TOWER is complete, but we're not going to see any footage quite yet. That privilege will be reserved until a very Stephen King-appropriate date, on the weekend before Halloween.

The footage is set to premiere at Entertainment Weekly's annual Popfest, which takes place in downtown Los Angeles on October 29th and October 30th. There's no word as to what exactly this footage will entail, but it will definitely give us a much clearer look at the film that the mass of still images just can't deliver.


Based on the Stephen King-penned fantasy series. The film will follow a wandering knight who is the last hope of the fallen land of Mid-World. He is charged with finding the Dark Tower while battling his nemesis the Man in Black.

The cast incudes Idris Elba as the Gunslinger Roland Deschain, Tom Taylor as Roland's young sidekick Jake Chambers, Matthew McConaughey as the villainous Man in Black, Fran Kranz as the MIB's right hand man Pimli, Katheryn Winnick as an unknown character, and Abbey Lee as Tirana, who was a minor baddie in the climactic book.

THE DARK TOWER will rise into theaters on February 17, 2017.
