Trailer Park | The Book of Eli

24 07 2009


Last month, Maxwell returned with a new CD after an eight year layoff. The Hughes Brothers hope that lightning can strike twice as they direct Denzel Washington in the post-apocalyptic thriller, “The Book of Eli.”

The brothers climb back into the directing chair for the first time since 2001’s “From Hell” to tell the story of a lone hero (Washington) who guards the Book of Eli, which provides knowledge that could redeem society. He must also fight off Carnegie (Gary Oldman) plans to take possession of the book.

Traditionally, Washington’s action films are not his strongest work and add that the film has a January release date and one starts to worry about the viability of the film. The trailer gives you a tiny peek into what is in store but out of respect for Washington, we will reserve judgment.

Here’s hoping that the Hughes Brothers can emulate Maxwell’s success by taking this film number one on it’s opening weekend!

The film co-stars Mila Kunis, Ray Stevenson, Jennifer Beals, Michael Gambon and Evan Jones.
