Exclusive Clip | Matthew McConaughey in Stephen King’s The Dark Tower

It’s been one hell of a year for Stephen King fans. Major adaptations of the master of horror’s novels and short stories have been everywhere, from low-budget creepfests like Gerald’s Game and 1922, to giant productions of epic tomes like IT and The Dark Tower. There’s plenty of Stephen King to go around, and on October 31 there’s going to be a little more because The Dark Tower is finally coming to Blu-ray.

The Dark Tower stars Idris Elba as Roland Deschain, a gunslinger on the hunt for Walter, the man in black, played by Oscar-winner Matthew McConaughey. It’s a tale that set Roland off on a path that would span multiple novels and comic book series, and those pieces are all in place in Nikolaj Arcel’s adaptation.

In this exclusive clip from The Dark Tower, you can go behind the scenes of the production to watch a shootout get filmed, and learn a bit more about Matthew McConaughey’s investment in his mysterious character.

Check out the clip, and check out The Dark Tower on 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray, Blu-ray & DVD October 31!
