The review embargo has lifted for the long-awaited adaptation of Stephen King's 'The Dark Tower' and it's not looking pretty.
It’s the moment Stephen King fans have been waiting for – his fantasy epic ‘The Dark Tower’ has finally been brought to life. After some teasers from its stars Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey on Twitter yesterday, and some pretty cool motion posters released online, we’ve got our first proper look at the forthcoming movie. Elba plays the ‘gunslinger’ Roland Deschain, the last of his kind who roam the post-apocalyptic Mid-World, which exists in parallel to Earth, in search of the ‘dark tower’, the nexus of all universes.
Matthew McConaughey returns to cinemas this week in ‘Gold’ (out on 3 February) playing prospector Kenny Wells, a fictional character loosely inspired by real-life miner David Walsh who brought the Canadian stock market to its knees in the 1990s. Like Wells in the film, Walsh was a larger-than-life character – “a consumer of life” as McConaughey puts it – who died prematurely aged 52, so the 47-year-old actor filled up on life, gaining 47 pounds to look the part. It’s a stark contrast to the extreme weight loss he underwent for his Oscar-winning performance in ‘Dallas Buyers Club’.

This could possibly be the most Matthew McConaughey thing that Matthew McConaughey has ever done.
Universal has released a series of new character portraits for ‘Sing’, the new animated musical from the studio responsible for ‘Minions’ and ‘Despicable Me’, to help you put a face to a name. Directed by Garth Jennings (‘Son of Rambow’, ‘The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy’), ‘Sing’ is set in a world like ours but one that is completely inhabited by animals, and it tells the story of a plucky Koala who wants to host the world’s greatest singing competition.
Matthew McConaughey and Naomi Watts in a movie directed by Oscar-nominated Gus Van Sant should be a sure thing. The movie was made last year, and is set in the Aokigahara forest in Japan, at the bottom of Mount Fuji, known as the ‘suicide forest’ due to the number of people who go there to take their own lives (54 were recorded in 2010 alone). McConaughey plays a businessman who goes there to do just that, but meets another man, Takumi, played by Ken Watanabe, who is planning to do the same.
