Two Dark Tower teasers from McConaughey & Elba are badass

It was only yesterday that I posted a new pic of Idris Elba as The Gunslinger in the upcoming feature adaptation of Stephen King's THE DARK TOWER. In that post, I went on a (slight) rant about how we NEEDED to see a damn trailer soon!

Turns out we only had to wait a day. Or, you know, two.

The full trailer for THE DARK TOWER is set to hit sometime tomorrow (make sure to keep checking back here with AITH because we will have it asap), but until then we have two quick teasers to share!

They come from The Gunslinger and The Man in Black themselves, Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey, after a fun Twitter battle between the two, which you can check out below:

Oh, that was a lot of fun, right?

I wish more stars would get into their roles in fun ways like these two. That said, watch your long fingernailed-ass McConaughey, I'm not trying to start anything here, but I do believe Elba could stomp you back into HOW TO LOSE A GUY IN 10 DAYS mode.

And nobody wants THAT.

THE DARK TOWER film synopsis:

Jake Chambers (Tom Taylor) is a young 11-year-old adventure seeker who discovers clues about another dimension called Mid-World. Upon following the mystery, he is spirited away to Mid-World where he encounters the lone frontiersman knight Roland Deschain (Idris Elba) who is on a quest to reach the "Dark Tower" that resides in End-World and reach the nexus point between time and space that he hopes will save Mid-World from extinction. But with various monsters and a vicious sorcerer named Walter Padick (Matthew McConaughey) hot on their trail, the unlikely duo find that their quest may be difficult to complete.

THE DARK TOWER is directed by Nikolaj Arcel and stars Idris Elba, Matthew McConaughey, Tom Taylor, Fran Kranz, Jackie Earle Haley, Katheryn Winnick, and Abbey Lee (see below).

THE DARK TOWER hits theaters nationwide August 4th.

Hooray! Another excuse for pics of Katheryn Winnick & Abbey Lee. Hooray!
