The Book Of Eli- Film Preview

This feature looks like one that may actually inspire me to get up and go to the IMAX theater as opoosed to waiting for the DVD release, which has been my usual routine for the majority of the last decade.

First and foremost, it is a Hughes Brothers joint release, the first since 2001.

Secondly, the storyline itself , for whatever reason, speaks directly to me as a writer, and inspires me to continue to explore the possibilities of where the buttons on a keyboard can actually take us all.

Lastly, reports show that box office and DVD profit totals reached $6 billion dollars in U.S. domestic sales for 2009, and the figures are expected to remain stable and grow in 2010 which proves that the film industry has remained a recession proof business, so hooray for Hollywood!

In post-apocalyptic 2043, a lone hero, Eli (Denzel Washington), guards the Book of Eli, which provides knowledge that could redeem society, and the source of all their pain. The despot of a small makeshift town (Gary Oldman) plans to take possession of the book.
