    "The Book Of Eli" Theatrical Trailer

    The initial teaser for this Denzel Washington starring apocalyptic action tale didn't impress me, but boy did this full trailer.

    We get a stronger sense of the shape of the film here, with a look at two of the important characters aside from Denzel's Eli. I absolutely love the Road Warrior meets Leone western look of this post apocalyptic world, with the metalic pallete giving a stylized, dark, almost Anime visual sheen to the Hughes Brothers vision of a ravaged Earth.

    Denzel has never really been an action movie star but has always had the badass look and presence, however here, as the grizzled Eli, he looks to be right in the thick of it in some awesome looking sequences.

    "The Book Of Eli" opens on the 15th of January 2010 and you can see a plot synopsis and the trailer below.

    In a post-apocalyptic America where the once-picturesque countryside has become a desolate and violent wasteland, one man (Denzel Washington) fights to protect that sacred tome that could hold the key to the survival of the human race in this futuristic thriller from filmmaking duo Albert and Allen Hughes (From Hell and Dead Presidents). Gary Oldman, Mila Kunis, and Ray Stevenson co-star in the Warner Bros. production.
