Trailer Park | The Book of Eli (Trailer Two)

26 09 2009

Here is the latest trailer from the upcoming film from the Hughes Brothers, “The Book of Eli.” While the first trailer left us lukewarm, this second attempt repositions Oscar-winner Denzel Washington as a “Vin Diesel-esque” futuristic action hero.

The film, slated for release on MLK birthday weekend, revolves around a lone warrior (Washington) who must fight to bring society the knowledge that could be the key to its redemption. Gary Oldman will portray the despot of a small makeshift town who’s determined to take possession of the book Eli’s guarding.

The two-minute plus trailer is full of action and if for only it’s release date, we would REALLY be excited. But history tells us that quality and January usually don’t go hand in hand. As we frequently say, we’d love to be wrong.

“The Book of Eli” opens in theaters on January 15, 2010.

I watched trailer 2 for the Book of Eli; it was full of action. So I had to visit You Tube to see the original trailer. While I liked the first one, I understand why a second trailer was made. The second appeals to action movies fans and the first to drama movie fans. I’m glad I’ve seen both because now I have a truer sense of what the movie will be like. Thank you.
