The second trailer for the upcoming Denzel Washinton starrer, The Book of Eli, has debuted online ealier today and we have it here for your viewing pleasure.
The new promo builds on and extends what we saw from the first teaser trailer and shows off much more of the secondary characters, combined with plenty of action. We also get our first scenes of Mila Kunis in action as the character, Solara.
The story of The Book of Eli centers on Denzel’s character, Eli, travelling through the post-apocalyptic wasteland of America, protecting a book that may hold the key to civilization’s survival. On his journey, Eli meets Gary Oldman’s character, Carnegie, the man in charge of a run-down town, Carnegie learns about the book Eli possesses and puts his efforts into taking it for himself.
Here’s the new theatrical trailer:
This movie looks promising to me but I’m not big on Mila Kunis’ action-oriented character. After seeing her in an action role in Max Payne, her and weapons don’t work for me.
That being said, Gary Oldman and Denzel Washington can easily make up for that and I hope to see some awesome action from the leading man. The film’s cast also stars Jennifer Beals, Ray Stevenson, Malcolm McDowell, Michael Gambon and Tom Waits.
What do you think of the trailer?
The Book of Eli is directed by Albert & Allen Hughes and opens January 15, 2010.
