Just in case you’ve been hankering for another ‘last man on Earth’ movie, here comes Denzel Washington in The Book of Eli. The first official trailer has been released for the thriller by Warner Bros. and Apple, and can also be seen in the video player below. The film is 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.
Denzel Washington is that man, Gary Oldman plays one of the remaining men trying to get his sacred book and Mila Kunis plays what we can only imagine is a hot chick with awesome sunglasses on. If Max Payne is any indicator, she will also be playing the role badly. But here’s hoping that the rest of The Book of Eli will live up to what is a pretty badass trailer, even if the film is derivative of like 35 other post-apocalyptic lone-badass-trying-to-save-humanity films that’ve come before it.
The Book of Eli is in theaters January 15, 2010. View the trailer below, courtesy of Apple.
