Stephen King’s The Dark Tower is making its way to the big screen, and we now have the first Dark Tower trailer, featuring Mathew McConaughey — who’s totally set on tearing the tower down. The film also stars internet boyfriend Idris Elba, who is trying to stop Matthew from ruining everything. And by the looks of the trailer, it will be a difficult task!

The trailer for The Dark Tower is jammed packed with action and even travel between different worlds. Oh, and there’s plenty of crazy action sequences too. It looks stunningly beautiful, but somebody needs to keep an eye on that tower because, like Jenga, we don’t want that thing to fall!!
