The Book of Eli Trailer: Denzel Washington Takes The Road Less Traveled

By

Any moviegoers disappointed this Thanksgiving to discover that John Hillcoat's bleak, challenging movie adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's The Road isn't the thrilling romantic-comedy action spectacular advertised in its trailer might do well to check out the Hughes Brothers' upcoming Book of Eli, starring Denzel Washington as a handsome, ass-kicking apocalypse survivor, beating up dudes all across America on a quest to save humankind. Unlike the unexplained world-ending event that precedes the action in Road, Eli's Armageddon will be explicitly blamed on the sun's explosion. Plus, there's a still-alive love interest, a creepy-acting Gary Oldman, a hard-rocking soundtrack, and no obnoxiously helpless 10-year-olds to slow down the action. We'll probably skip this one.
