Theatrical Trailer for Book of Eli Brings the Pain

So yup, the secret is out: Eli’s little book, that everyone wants to get their little hands on, is a copy of the Bible. I kinda figured that’s what it was. Here’s the latest, action-packed theatrical trailer for the Hughes Brother’s post-apocalyptic movie “Book of Eli”. The trailer really plays up the action, which is not necessarily a bad thing. When it comes to big-budget post-apocalyptic tales, you can go gritty and depressing like “The Road”, or you can go the ass kicking route, which seems to be the case here.

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