The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed.  The iconic opening line of Stephen King's groundbreaking series, The Dark Tower, introduces one of his most enigmatic and powerful heroes: Roland of Gilead, the Last Gunslinger.  Roland is a haunting figure, a loner, on a spellbinding journey toward the mysterious Dark Tower, in a desolate world which frighteningly echoes our own.  On his quest, Roland begins a friendship with a kid from New York named Jake, encounters an alluring woman and faces an agonising choice between damnation and salvation as he pursues the Man in Black. 'Strange, scary and utterly gripping.' - The Guardian The Dark Tower, a major motion picture starring Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba, is due in cinemas August 18, 2017.
