Where the hell did this come from! The first trailer for The Book of Eli made me think that this was going to be one of those years where we have two near-identical movies released. What film did Book look like? The Road, of course. But not so! Warner Bros. Pictures has released a new trailer for The Book of Eli that is magnificent.
Book of Eli Trailer
The Book of Eli revolves around a lone warrior (Washington) who must fight to bring society the knowledge that could be the key to its redemption. Oldman has been set to portray the despot of a small makeshift town who's determined to take possession of the book Eli's guarding. Stevenson will play an enforcer dispatched to kill Eli as he fights his way across the American wasteland, protecting a sacred book that may hold the key to saving humanity.
Action. Visuals. Fighting. Gary Oldman. Mila Kunis throwing a grenade?! Awesome! Easily the best trailer I've seen all week, and I've seen a ton thanks to upcoming festivals, The Book of Eli now looks like a film one should not miss in theaters.
