A new Dark Tower promo video was just released.

What does it fail to talk much about? The Dark Tower.
Parties at Comic-Con almost always have an entertainment theme or sponsor. It’s how companies and websites pay for them. Most are pretty subtle but when Sony teamed up with IGN to do a Dark Tower party, they went straight to the Stephen King source material to find their inspiration.
In just 25 days, Sony’s long-in-the-making Dark Tower film hits theaters.
