Movie Trailer For The Book of Eli Starring Denzel Washington 2009-07-24 12:30:13

Movie Preview: Denzel Washington in The Book of Eli

At Comic-Con today, I'm hoping to learn more about The Book of Eli, a forthcoming post-apocalyptic film starring Denzel Washington. The first trailer for the film — one of many dark movies coming over the next few months — has hit the web, and it definitely does look spooky.

The trailer sets up the basic outline of the story: Washington stars as Eli, one of the only survivors left on Earth. He possesses a book that holds the secrets to rebuilding humankind. As his voiceover solemnly intones in the trailer, some would kill to take the book from him; he will kill to protect it from falling into the wrong hands.

The cinematography is what's really catching my eye in this trailer. Everything's shot in tones of green and gray, with deserted roads and broken overpasses and other signs of a civilization deserted. The fight scenes are filmed almost in shadow, with the figures standing out as black outlines against the creepy green sky. I hope I'll have more to share soon about how this looks on the big screen! The movie hits theaters on Jan. 15, 2010, and for now you can check out the trailer for yourself if you

I can't think of better casting than Washington and Oldman. I'm always keen to see legends working together. Looks fantastic!
