Get your first official look at the stars of ‘The Dark Tower’…hold up, is that a Pokeball?

Deputy Entertainment Editor

After years in development purgatory, Stephen King”s The Dark Tower is finally moving forward with a film adaptation. As of this writing, Roland (Idris Elba) and the Man in Black (Matthew McConaughey) are fleeing across deserts and popping across parallel universes. The movie isn”t due out until next year, but Entertainment Weekly got the exclusive first (official) look at Ebla and McConaughey in costume…

…hold up, is that a Pokeball? What do you mean this magazine ‘is not a Pokestop”?????

EW promises exclusive photos of the Mid-World plains and images of Jake Chambers (Tom Holloway) in the issue. There will also be interviews with director Nikolaj Arcel and actor Idris Elba. Elba will speak for the first time about race-swapping Roland”s character from white to black. McConaughey and Stephen King himself will also speak about their experiences with the film…

…I”m sorry. But I keep getting distracted by the ‘This cover is not a Pokestop.” What does it mean!? And more importantly, why can”t magazines and books be mobile Pokestops? Nintendo needs to work on hotspot Pokestops for all your ‘come to me, my fellow Trainers!” needs.

The Dark Tower arrives in theaters on February 17, 2017. Hopefully, your local cineplex IS a Pokestop.
