Odd Enough Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey's new movie is going to be badass

The trailer for 'The Dark Tower' has just been released​ and we are pumped.

  • Published: , Refreshed:

The trailer for The Dark Tower has just been released, finally. And yes, it did meet every expectation that it's going to be epic.

How could it not, with Idris Elba as the hero and Matthew McConaughey as the antagonist? You may or may not find us camped outside the theater for this one.

The movie is bringing the wildly-popular Steven King fantasy novel to the big screen. Did you just roll your eyes at "fantasy" or immediately think of a killer clown at the mention of King? Trust us on this one, it's about as action-packed and badass of a movie that you'll find.

Golden Globe-winner Elba plays the gunslinger Roland Deschain, who is trying to keep Oscar-winning McConaughey's evil sorcerer Walter Padick, or "The Man in Black," from destroying the "dark tower" in order to save both the gunslinger's dimension and our own modern-day world.

McConaughey and Elba seem the perfect fit for both of their roles, and even teased us a little bit prior to the trailer's release via Twitter, where they started exchanging quotes from their characters.

We are particularly excited for this film since it's starring not one, but two Men's Health cover guys. And if you want to get a bit more info on the leads, here's how the gunslinger Idris Elba stays so insanely fit. Of course, it's gotta be pretty stressful being an evil sorcerer plotting to destroy two worlds. Here's how McConaughey beats the stress heat.
