Christopher Webster [Celluloid 11.06.08] post apocalyptic movie news



The boys over at comingsoon got the first look at some 3D art for the Hughes Brothers' big budget post apocalyptic film The Book of Eli. The film from Warner Bros. Pictures is already set for a January 2010 release date and has both Denzel Washington and Gary Oldman attached to star as pro and an tagonists respectively.

"Washington plays a survivor who must fend off gangs and a brutal tyrant in a desolate wasteland. Oldman will play the film's villain, a "despot of a small and pathetic town, who’s determined to get a hold of Eli’s book."

It's probably hard to see in the image to the right but that's a samurai sword ol' Denzel is sportin' (at least I'm assuming that's supposed to be Denzel). Samurai sword coolness aside, this one's still registering high on the I am Legend scale (as in, will probably look great but be bogged down by Hollywood fluffery). There's a larger image after the break.

the art looks amazing but i'm nervous because i don't want denzel or oldman to end up making "the postman."

Hey now, why all the negativity about this movie most all the time?

As I see it it's one of few actually "original" PA movies (one of few original movies period even) being made now amongst a bunch of remakes or comic/book adaptations.

And it has both Gary Oldman and Denzel Washington in it. Two highly praised actors.

So far it sounds better than most movies.

And come on, PA movie usually rock no matter how good or bad they are. This will be a proper high budget PA movie.

I'm stoked!
