The Book of Eli Trailer

Warner Brothers has just debuted a second full-length trailer for The Book of Eli today on Yahoo. We last debuted the teaser trailer for this during Comic-Con back in July. The Book of Eli stars Denzel Washington, Gary Oldman, Mila Kunis, Michael Gambon, Ray Stevenson, and Tom Waits. This still looks as awesome as it did a few months ago - I've got high hopes for it, which is odd for a mid-January movie. It's got a lot of action, I love the gritty, western style of it, and I love everything else about this, especially the cast. It should be pretty damn fun and I can't wait to kick of 2010 with a great movie like this. Anyway, check it out below!

Watch the official trailer for The Book of Eli:

The Book of Eli is directed by Detroit-born brothers Allen and Albert Hughes, who previously brought us Dead Presidents, American Pimp, and From Hell, but haven't made anything since 2001. The screenplay was written by newcomer Gary Whitta, who is also attached to write the Akira live-action remake and The Defenders coming up. Warner Brothers will be bringing The Book of Eli to theaters everywhere starting on January 15th early next year. We hope it's as good as this official trailer looks! Will you be seeing this?

  • Dan W
    I'm wondering what exactly is in the book that could save everyone. I hope it's not some religious mumbo jumbo

    This is the Gary Oldman we have come to love
  • GO2D2
    absolute pupu....
  • Quite enjoyed it, the fight scenes are a bit like wrestling matches, kindo staged looking, but I think the story will be good.
  • cineprog
    kickass picture cannot wait.
  • Luke
    Looks cool. It makes me think of Fallout.
  • sumonesumtime
    @ 3 and 9 You guys gonna see this for the potential philosophical breakthroughs it might contain.

  • wHiskey Tango…
    Everything looks sick... Kinda glad the blade is crude not a samurai sword like once thought. Worth a good look.
  • Vegegeeta-geeta
    Seems like an awesome action movie. Is the Book in question the Bible?
  • Syphous
    I'm worried about the cheese factor. On one hand it looks awesome, on the other hand it could easily be so cheesy and lame that it's just not enjoyable. And I also agree with #3, I hope this isn't some "only God can save us" crap.
  • Sabes
    Denzel Washington and Gary Oldman are so badass. "religious mumbo jumbo" ? Who cares if it's something religious? Don't down a movie just because it might possibly talk about things you don't necessarily don't believe in. Who knows what it is though. I can't wait to see it.
  • beavis
    will i be seeing this?......HELL YEA! denzel makes a great "badass".
  • Robbie
    Vanessa Hudgens? WHY?! Nonetheless, awesome trailer.
  • ryan
    I like how it's thirty years since the collapse of civilization and everyone still has badass designer sunglasses...
  • Taylor
    NO. And lol at 26
  • @#1 My thoughts exactly. At 2:05 it reminds me just like random places in the wasteland with highways in Fallout 3. While the scenery & the game share similar qualities I do not expect them to be the same which is fine. I cannot wait till The Book of Eli releases. After watching this trailer I expect good things. I'd like to see how well Mila Kunis does in this movie.
  • blaze
    #25 thats not Vanessa Hudgens its Mila Kunis
  • Fisherr
    Denzel and Gary rock by nature, imagine both in a post apocalyptic movie.
  • John Doe
    Wait a minute is this...Fallout 3?! LOL
  • Ben
    WOW. Cannot wait!
  • wrongturn687
    Holy crap that looked badass. And I agree that it is strange to have such high hopes for a movie coming out in January when thats usually studio dump month for a bunch of cash in crappy horror movies like One Missed Call. But, honestly there are alot of potentially great flicks coming out next January. Along with this movie we got Daybreakers which looks awesome from the trailer and the early reviews have been pretty solid aswell and we can't forget about Edge Of Darkness. I mean Mel Gibson with Martin Campbell directing just sounds like a wining combo to me.
  • Geoff
    Looks pretty meh
  • matthew
    mila kunis is probably going to give me a mad boner during this movie.
  • Kevin
    Why do the words Mad Max keeping popping into my head?
  • Dan W
    All I'm saying is that if he's carrying the last bible or some type of religious text that would be a pretty lame premise. It has to be something more significant and meaningful to the times in which they live in. I'm sure no one cares about god or any of that after they survive an apocalypse. Now I don't know what that would be which is why I'm interested in finding out what the book entails. Which is why I want to see this movie.
  • Lazarus from Sparta!!!!
    Can yu spell FALLOUT3!!!! Denzel rockin it after some dumb train flick! Gary Oldman being less commissioner Gordon and more Evil villain of the year once again! And Mila Kunis...not being Kelso's duchie girl friend! This film is a good throw back to Mad Max style film!
  • seanathan
    after watching that, i really hope it has a strong script, because it has that post apocalyptic setting that we've, sadly, grown way to used to. if you want to understand how much of a true genre this sub-genre has become, check out six-string samurai. book of eli looks like six string meets western django, but with a bigger budget and better actors. and that they hide so much of the plot details (why does denzel have this book? is it what's IN it, or what's actually written? why the hell is a girl like mila kunis not a sex slave in a world like that? etc.) makes me even more worrisome. this movie will either be a 10 or a 2. and i'd like to think with denzel and gary and mila, it's a guarantee 10, but pelham, the unborn, and extract tell me they all know how to make bad choices, too.
  • DoomCanoe
    after a trailer like that how can you not want to see this movie! seriously who ever cropped that together is god damn awesome at their job.
  • var2apo
    Looks like crap. Maybe after a few years i will see it on tv.
  • SlashBeast
    Denzel Washington AND Gary Oldman? I'm so fucking there opening day!
  • Bry from Chi
    This sister will be there to check out Denzel kickikn' some old dirty b-a.
  • harrison
    is it just me or does it not work anymore?
  • harrison
    nevermind got it to work and hell even mila kunis looks badass in this
  • dave13
    seriously, its fallout 3: denzel expansion. and i am so sold on this.
  • alex
    the fight scenes on this one just look so crap i think i might have to throw up, i t looks like a good movie but denzel just does not look like he can kick ass, its a bit like on stage fighting scenes CRAP !
  • Bob Dylan
    Action movies are so much better when they star good actors. This looks good.
  • N
    Pretty badass.
  • raquelswell
    Gorgeous looking movie. But Denzel and Oldman are the wrong people for this. And the trailer was poorly put together.
  • scm1000
    I'm really looking forward to this. It looks sort of like a combination of I Am Legend, Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior, and a classic Spaghetti Western.
  • Vold
    I highly doubt his book will be religious in nature. Probably more to do with a way of curing some disease or a map to a better place or how to make clean water or something (I hope). Looks like it could be good.
  • SlashBeast
    #37 - Dan W You're a dicklicker who obviously knows nothing. #48 - alex Denzel doesn't look like he can kick @$$? You obviously have never seen Denzel Washington, he could kick your @$$ in 2 seconds. #51 - raquelswell How would you know that? Fool.
  • Gregory T
    This reminds me of Fallout 3 with Denzel in it. I wonder if he'll have a companion named Dogmeat.
  • Harmon
  • michael w
    trailer looks awesome! should be the next matrix movie! niiiiiice and actiony. Ye. I can see it in my head.
  • Dave
    Looks like a hell of a movie. Denzel Washington acting like a bad ass, reminds me of some of his great films like Training day and John Q. Cant wait to see it.
  • "The BOOK" is the Farmer's Almanac. Sorry to be a spoiler!
  • Bill
    Hah! Just saw it. What a turkey-buzzard! It was all religion, and the Book has a cross on it, or a crescent moon,..... take your pick. Looked like Jimmy swaggert on Sunday. FIZzzzzlle.
