Book of Eli opens January 15
Oscar-winner Denzel Washington goes post-apocalyptic on us, in this action-adventure film from Albert and Allen Hughes (whose last work was the Jack-the-Ripper film, FROM HELL, adapted from Alan Moore’s graphic novel). Washington plays one of those archetypal loners out to save the remnants of humanity, this time by protecting a sacred book filled with the secret that will, well, save humanity. Mila Kunis and Ray Stevenson are in the supporting cast. Warner Brothers is distributing.
Not sure this means anything, but I find it interesting that this week’s big genre release, like last week’s DAYBREAKERS, comes from a brother-brother directing duo. How will the Hughes Brothers fare in head-to-head competition with Michael and Peter Spierig?
