First Look | The Book of Eli

21 03 2009

Here is the first image from two-time Oscar winner Denzel Washington’s upcoming futuristic sci-fi adventure, “The Book of Eli.”

Directed by The Hughes Bros., the film centers on a lone hero named Eli (Washington) who must fight his way across the wasteland of a near-future America to protect a sacred book that might hold the key to saving humanity.

The film also stars in the film are Gary Oldman, Mila Kunis, Jennifer Beals, Ray Stevenson, and Michael Gambon.

Oldman plays the despot of a small town who is willing to do anything to get a hold of Eli’s book. Beals is playing Oldman’s sexual prize and Kunis’ mother, a blind woman doing anything she can to protect her child. Gambon will play one half of a strangle couple that holds onto old traditions in the futuristic tale.

Washington, whose next film, “The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3″ opens later this summer, reunites with Beals who starred with him in”The Devil With a Blue Dress.” The film also marks the first project from The Hughes brothers since they helmed “From Hell.”

“The Book of Eli” is slated to be released on January 15, 2010

I have to say that the movie seems to have a lot of potential. Maybe I’m just a silent Denzel fan, but still the trailer rocks. Watched it here:
