THE DARK TOWER movie has had a Hell of a time getting made, but it is being made. Soon we will get a final version, and we will be able to see what all the fuss was about. Until then, we are stuck in a sort of purgatory where the movie is still being made but isn't totally yet done, so all we get are lots of little pictures and details, hinting at what the final product will be.

One of those little pictures comes courtesy of Ron Howard's Twitter feed, where he shared an image of himself, director Nikolaj Arcel and The Gunslinger himself, Idris Elba. Take a gander below!

Obviously the big takeaway from this little tweet is the good look of Elba as Gunslinger in full costume. This isn't the first time we've seen Elba in costume, but it seems there's a little bit more added here, such as the gray vest. That combined with previous images really gives us a complete portrait of what he'll look like in the finished film. 

Though he is posing for a photo, Elba still looks intimidating as all crap, and his costume is exactly the thing a man named The Gunslinger should be wearing. Simply put, he looks perfect. I don't know much about the Stephen King book, but the images and illustrations from the story that are scattered around the web hint at a grand, poetic, apocalyptic fever dream. Let's hope Elba's penchant to harness both sensitive drama and sheer intensity will contribute to this tone nicely. If it doesn't, then at least he looks dapper.

THE DARK TOWER is set to release on February 17, 2017

Idris Elba + Western = Badass
I've never read the book but I just know i'll enjoy this especially if I picture him as the legendary Bass Reeves.

Man do I not want this movie to suck... Elba does look pretty imposing though.
