Brand New Trailer For The Book Of Eli
Believe that Den will kill to protect it

Yesterday we showed you the poster of Denzel in The Book Of Eli, fresh from the halls of Comic-Con, and now we have the brand new trailer for the film and the future sure does look bleak.

Watch The Book Of Eli trailer here.

Denzel plays Eli, a man who has survived the apocalyptic war which "tore a hole in the sky" thirty one years before. Assuming a nomadic existence, he is the sole protector of a book which contains the secrets to save mankind, and as Eli commits: "the only hope is in my hands."

And we get to see Washington kick some serious Mad Max-y looking ass in this trailer in his bid to keep the book from falling into the wrong hands, namely those of the coniving Carnegie, played by Gary Oldman. The film also stars Michael Gambon and Mila Kunis.

The Book Of Eli is due in cinemas on January 15 2010.

Bethesda must be getting some money??!
If I made a film about a pixie called Fred who meets a magician called Gandi, who leads him and his slightly camp friends on an adventure through Lower Earth to destroy a bracelet someone would say "Hey that's Lord of the Rings!!!" Book of Eli is so Fallout 3 that surely Bethesda must be about to cash in, (I know they do have rights to a film version of Fallout 3), If they're not I will take the Hughes brothers to court! More

RE: Denzel

RE: Denzel
This has been doing my head in since seeing the trailer yesterday. There is no way it is not influenced entirely by Fallout 3! I thought it was a trailer for Fallout from the towns to the roads and bridges the lighting. I am so confused! More

What about Ray Stevenson?
He's not in the trailer and I think he's the main draw, IMO. Anything with Ray--bring it on More

The Hughes Brothers are criminally underrated IMO - loved all their films and they have a great eye (eyes?). Will be seeing this one. More

Denzel
Oh yeah, Denzel in the first Hughes brothers movie in 8 years, should be interesting. Hoped to see Mila Kunis in the trailer, but oh well see her in a newer one soon enough. More

Fallout 3
Seriously, why don't they just call it Fallout the movie? It's bloody Fallout! Heck, the book of Eli = the G.E.C.K. (Garden of Eden Creation Kit), the mcguffin from the first games. Every location in the movie looks exactly like the design from the games, from broken roads, debris hills with cars, the Raiders, the weapons, the mercenaries, the way the bloody buildings are broken...

Awesome
Wow, has a feel of Terminator here. Denzel is gonna kick ass, major big ass. The cool thing is Gary Oldman and Ray Stevenson is in it too so that makes it very high in my books. I like it so far, totally awesome. More

RE:
Looks interesting and similar to the computer game Fallout. Interesting to see Denzel in badass mode again. More

Good to see Denzel kicking ass again. I heard a rumor before that king Kong ain't got shit on him. More
