The first trailer for "The Dark Tower," starring Idris Elba as the Gunslinger and Matthew McConaughey as The Man in Black, has finally arrived. And fans have feelings. Fans of Stephen King's book series have particularly strong feelings.

Never read the Dark Tower but I'll watch @idriselba be a brooding badass for a couple hours any damn day. Into it!— Eric Pope (@MrPope) May 3, 2017
The Dark Tower trailer - even if everything else is compromised, if this is all about getting Roland right, I'm 100% down #DarkTowerMovie— Jesse Miksic (@miksimum) May 3, 2017

The Dark Tower trailer is literally the most disappointing thing I've ever seen. Please be decent. That book is my life— ᴀᴇǫᴜɪ✞ᴀs (@neurohGr) May 3, 2017

*wonders if Stephen King wrote another book called THE DARK TOWER that I haven't read*
The Dark Tower looks about as bad as I expected.— David Derkowski (@DavidDerkowski) May 3, 2017
THE DARK TOWER trailer is rough. Expectations basement level.— Sean C. Duregger (@seanCduregger) May 3, 2017
The Dark Tower trailer makes it look like another formulaic and cliché superhero movie. No real surprise there, though.— James Robinett (@JameslyRo) May 3, 2017
Officially no longer looking forward to the Dark Tower films— breadnt (@RrhoidRage) May 3, 2017

I hope they just made the Dark Tower look like a generic fantasy action flick in the trailer to appeal to normies, because boy is it bad.— Inokiism3rdWorldism (@purowoookie) May 3, 2017
Here's the movie synopsis from Sony:
"Jake Chambers (Tom Taylor) is a young 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 the lone frontiersman knight Roland Deschain (Idris Elba), 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 Mid-World from extinction. But with various monsters and a vicious sorcerer named Walter Padick (Matthew McConaughey) hot on their trail, the unlikely duo find that their quest may be difficult to complete."
"The Dark Tower" arrives in theaters on August 4th after being moved the schedule several times. This is hoped to be the start of a multi-movie franchise with a companion TV spinoff. Fingers crossed that the final result pleases everyone.
