      Fans of Stephen King's Dark Tower series can rejoice, because the trailer for movie adaptation The Dark Tower is finally here.

      King's books tell the story of a mysterious man called the Gunslinger, who roams a ruined landscape looking for the Dark Tower, which he hopes will preserve his dying world.

      The Dark Tower stars the ever-suave Idris Elba as the Gunslinger (a.k.a. Roland Deschain) and Matthew McConaughey as his nemesis the Man in Black.

      And while the film won't hit theatres until August 4, eager fans can check out the newly released trailer below.
