Denzel Washington in Book of Eli Trailer

After a long wait, it’s finally here — the first trailer for Denzel Washington’s post-apocalyptic action film, “Book of Eli”. The Hughes Brothers are directing this one, and it co-stars Gary Oldman as the bad guy (who plays bad guys better than Gary Oldman?) and Mila Kunis as the love interest. I’m still not sold on Kunis, but I’ve been sold on “Book of Eli” since I heard the premise many moons ago. Check out the first teaser trailer for the movie, opening early next year.

A post-apocalyptic tale, in which a lone man fights his way across America in order to protect a sacred book that holds the secrets to saving humankind.

Starring Michael Gambon, Gary Oldman, Mila Kunis, Denzel Washington, Jennifer Beals, Ray Stevenson, Frances de la Tour, Tom Waits, and directed by Albert and Allen Hughes.
