It's finally been revealed when audiences will get their first glimpse of the upcoming "Dark Tower" movie adaptation, just after footage from the film's New York Comic Con panel leaked online.
According to Collider, the trailer will officially release at Christmas -- and it will include different footage from the leaked teaser that surfaced earlier today.
Speaking to the site, director Nikolaj Arcel said how the film will appeal to those familiar with the source material and audiences that have never heard of the property. "It manages that rare feat of being very satisfying for fans because it’s deeply loyal to the underlying material and Stephen King’s mythology, but also, I think, introduces a whole bunch of new fans."
Directed by Nikolaj Arcel, written by Anders Thomas Jensen, Akiva Goldsman and Jeff Pinkner, the film loosely adapts King’s 1982 novel “The Gunslinger,” from the middle of the story.
Opening Feb. 17, 2017, “The Dark Tower” stars Idris Elba, Matthew McConaughey, Abbey Lee, Katheryn Winnick, Tom Taylor, Fran Kranz, Claudia Kim and Jackie Earle Haley.
