Two new character posters have been released for the upcoming film adaptation of Stephen King’s “The Dark Tower”.

The film’s stars Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey are front and center on the one sheets, the pair releasing the posters via each other’s Twitter accounts.

Elba plays Roland Deschain, Mid-World’s last gunslinger, who is travelling south-east across a post-apocalyptic landscape, searching for the powerful but elusive magical edifice known as The Dark Tower.

Located in the fey region of End-World, amid a sea of singing red roses, the Dark Tower is the nexus point of the time-space continuum. It is the heart of all worlds, but it is also under threat. Someone, or something, is using the evil technology of the Great Old Ones to destroy it.

The film opens on August 4th.
