After what seems like an endless wait, the first trailer for The Dark Tower has finally been released.

The rights to Stephen King’s Dark Tower series has bounced around Hollywood for years vacillating between being set up as a TV or film adaptation with it now apparently being setup as a hybrid take that will see a follow-up story on the small screen next year.

All of that is finally settled and now we’re counting down the days until we see Idris Elba as the Gunslinger and Matthew McConaughey as The Man in Black. Can a series of this size – seven novels and a collection of short stories at this point – be properly adapted? Here’s hoping.

The Dark Tower hits theaters on Aug. 4.
