Check This Out: Chris Weston's Book of Eli Comic-Con Poster
By now you've probably noticed that the Hughes Brothers' The Book of Eli is making its grand debut at Comic-Con during the big Warner Brothers panel on Friday morning. While this movie isn't specifically based on any comics or anything at all, they have involved a lot of prominent comic book people, including artists Chris Weston and Tommy Lee Edwards. Well, over on Bleeding Cool, they have an early look at the poster that Chris Weston designed for The Book of Eli at Comic-Con. It actually looks pretty badass and I thought I'd feature it today before it gets lost in the mix next week in San Diego. Check these out below!
The Book of Eli is a a post-apocalyptic tale in which a lone man named Eli (played by Denzel Washington) fights his way across America in order to protect a sacred book that holds the secrets to saving humankind. In addition to designing some posters, both Chris Weston and Tommy Lee Edwards worked on the feature to create storyboards and concept art. I guess I should say that it's always pretty damn cool to hear that various prominent comic book artists were involved in helping create the look of a movie. That crossover should mean we'll get some gritty and badass visuals. At least that's what I'm hoping - we'll see next week!
