There’s huge buzz over the forthcoming adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower, so any further insight into it is a good thing.

We get to see a bit more of the battle between The Gunslinger (Idris Elba) and the Man in Black (Matthew McConaughey) in this new trailer. The former is trying to prevent the latter from destroying the titular tower, as it kind of holds the whole universe together.

The classic good versus evil tale looks a little like True Grit meets The Matrix. See what you think after viewing the new trailer below.

The Dark Tower is opening in Australian cinemas on August 17. Read our Scott’s thoughts on the forthcoming movie here.
