The Book Of Eli Opens Up

Post apocalypse now! Hollywood seems to be having end of civilisation blues at the moment. Recently we’ve had I Am Legend, Knowing and The Happening all predicting a bleak future for the human race. And come next January there's a new bleak cinematic future to look forward to.

USA Today has the first pics from The Book Of Eli, directed by From Hell directors, brothers Albert and Allen Hughes. Starring Denzel Washington and Gary Oldman (as the baddie, of course) it's the story of a man fighting his way across a wasted America to protect a book that could hold the key to saving humanity (D eli a Smith’s How To Cheat At Cooking, perhaps?).
