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!

This movie looks awesome. I wish I could be at Comic- Con when they rollout more from this movie. So far I'm very excited for this movie and these images just make me more excited. At least we know, whether the movie sucks or not, it will be a great looking movie. Glad to see they hired comic books writers to help with the imagery of the movie. Also, glad to see Denzel in this. I just wish he would hop back onto Unstoppable since Pelham was really good. Seriously, can't he just take $16 million instead of his usual $20 million and just make another badass train movie. But, I digress. Besides, this movie looks super badass.

I heard both Chris Weston and Tommy Lee Edwards will be at Comic- Con. Weston apparently will reveal these posters and a couple more and then he'll be signing posters. Also, Edwards will reveal a poster he made as well. I don't know if the Hughes brothers will be there though. If anyone is interested, there's a really cool article about them that was just published in the Las Angeles Times. I read it online and it's really good and they reveal why they haven't directed for so long. And it ain't because they got fed up with the business. They kinda got fed up with eachother.
