New pictures of Idris Elba as The Gunslinger have emerged

When the first pictures of Idris Elba filming the long-awaited adaptation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower emerged two months ago, we're not ashamed to say we freaked out. 

And now, with filming gaining pace in New York City, new photos are popping up every day to tide us over until the film's release in February 2017.

Elba is starring as Roland Deschain, aka the Gunslinger, opposite Matthew McConaughey, playing Randall Flagg - The Man in Black. Other stars include Tom Taylor, Jackie Earle Haley, Fran Kranz, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Michael Barbieri and Claudia Kim.
