The first look at the long-awaited film adaptation of Stephen King's 'The Dark Tower' is finally here.

Starring Matthew McConaughey and Idris Elba, the first clips don't give much away but do show off McConaughey's menacing 'Man in Black' and Elba's Gunslinger who is trying to find the Man in Black and reach the Dark Tower in an attempt to save his world from destruction.

The two actors got into an exchange teasing the film on Twitter last night before revealing the first teaser clips from the film ahead of the first trailer's release later today.

'The Dark Tower' is set for release on August 18th.
