Story: Western sci-fi fantasy directed and co-written by Nikolaj Arcel, the story follows Jake Chambers (Tom Taylor) an 11-year-old adventure seeker who discovers clues about another dimension called Mid-World. Upon following the mystery, he is spirited away to Mid-World where he encounters a Gunslinger, Roland Deschain (Idris Elba), the last Gunslinger, who is on a quest to reach the Dark Tower that resides in End-World and reach the nexus point between time and space that he hopes will save all existence from extinction. However, Deschain is locked in an eternal battle with Walter O’Dim (Matthew McConaughey), also known as the Man in Black, and he must prevent the Man in Black from toppling the Dark Tower, the key that holds the universe together.
Best Quotes from Trailer:
Roland Deschain: [voice over] For thousands of generations the Gunslingers were knights, sworn to protect us from the coming of the dark.

Dr. Hotchkiss: These visions as you call them, what do you see?
Jake Chambers: I see a tower, the Man in Black, and the Gunslinger.

[suddenly the ground starts to gently shake]

Jake Chambers: It’s you. You’re a Gunslinger, right?
Roland Deschain: There are no Gunslingers. Not anymore.
Jake Chambers: Why does the Man in Black want to destroy the tower?
Roland Deschain: The tower protects both our worlds. If it falls, Hell will be unleashed. Your world as you know it will end.
[referring to the Man in Black]
Jake Chambers: He’s like the Devil, isn’t he?
Roland Deschain: No, he’s worse.
Man in Black: [to Deschain] You can’t stop what’s coming. Death always wins. This is the way it always is.
Man in Black: The tower will fall.
Man in Black: Get used to the carnage.
Jake Chambers: [to Deschain] You’re world might be gone, but mine isn’t. If you let that tower fall, billions of people die.

Roland Deschain: Right, let’s go.
Man in Black: [to Deschain] Are you clawing your way out of the darkness? Did you tell the kid whoever walks with you dies by my hand?

Man in Black: Everyone who walks with you dies.
Roland Deschain: No more.
Roland Deschain: [to Jake] I will kill him, for both of us.
Roland Deschain: I do not aim with my hand. He who aims with his hand has forgotten the face of his father. I aim with my eye. I do not shoot with my hand. I shoot with my mind. I do not kill with my gun. I kill with my heart. That’s what being a Gunslinger means.
Roland Deschain: I do not shoot with my hand, I shoot with my mind. I do not kill with my gun, I kill with my heart.
