PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Fantasy
The last Gunslinger: Roland Deschain, has been locked in an eternal battle with Walter O'Dim, also known as the Man in Black, and determined to prevent him from toppling the Dark Tower that holds the universe together. With the fate of the world at stake, good and evil will collide in the ultimate battle, as only Roland can defend the Tower from the Man in Black.
Idris Elba appeared the previous year in Star Trek: Beyond (2016) opposite the late Anton Yelchin. Yelchin had appeared in Hearts in Atlantis (2001), which was also based on a Stephen King novel with connections to the Dark Tower series: Anthony Hopkins's character appears in the final novel of the series, and notes that Jake Chambers could easily have been a "twinner" for Bobby Garfield. Elba also appeared opposite Hopkins in Thor (2011).
He's like the Devil, isn't he?
Roland Deschain: No. He's worse.
Roland starts out with a wounded right arm, using his left to shoot and to pay the doctor with a coin in the hospital, but on the bus he takes pills and drinks a Coke with his right arm while holding his left arm limp.
Right at the very end of the credits, you hear the ominous whistle.
