Cape Town – Since filming of the adaptation of Stephen King's Dark Tower began in Cape Town we've been trying to get a sneak peek.

Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey star as the gunslinger and the villainous man in black.

Entertainment Weekly snapped these exclusive images of the stars in character. 

The images also introduce us to Jake Chambers played by Tom Taylor.

Jake, a young boy from New York experiences visions and nightmares of the tower.

Check out the pictures here:

Part 3 of 5: Jake Chambers stands here one of #TheDarkTower's portals between worlds–a decrepit Brooklyn mansion known as Dutch Hill, which literally roars to life around any intruder who tries to pass through its gateway. Production designer Christopher Glass said he wanted to take the supernatural premise and add real physics to it. "We’re trying to have rules, basically, for the way the house becomes a monster," he says. "Wood shouldn’t suddenly become rubber. It should have particles and fibers and break. And when certain elements are not touching one another, things don’t levitate. Everything has to be touching for it to be alive. Otherwise it just falls, gravity takes over." ??: Ilze Kitshoff
