Stephen King readers know one of the fascinating elements of The Dark Tower is just how intricately nuanced its realms can be.

As Entertainment Weekly wraps up its First Look coverage of the movie, which hits theaters on Feb. 17, we’re offering up the images in higher resolution for those who want to decorate their computer desktops, social media pages, and fan sites — or just zoom in to soak up the details of director Nikolaj Arcel’s imagery.

Especially interesting are all the drawings on the wall of Jake Chambers’ bedroom, representing the visions the teenage boy has been having of another time and place.

There’s a tower with a crimson flame inside it, containing an ominous face; a lone figure standing on a bare hilltop; and images of chained people being used as “breakers” to attack the tower. He’s seeing another world, but it is perilously close to crashing into our own if The Dark Tower falls.
