Featuring Elba’s character alongside young actor Tom Taylor as Jake Chambers and the quote ‘May your days be long upon the Earth’, the image is all in red aside from the white writing, hinting at a violent and chaotic journey. Chambers is a complicated character who is pulled into Deschain’s world and forced to become a part of the struggle between good and evil.
The appetite for news about The Dark Tower is at an all-time high, so if this image is all we’re going to get this week there could be many sorely disappointed. While it’s nice to see two of the series’ integral characters decked out in their movie regalia, Sony Pictures are going to have to do better if they’re hoping to get tongues wagging and people talking.
With that being said, we’re only at the start of the week, so the image could be just the beginning of a series of new promotional releases that will eventually culminate with the release of the first official trailer. We certainly hope so, as The Dark Tower has the potential to be one of the bigger movie events of 2017.
