I’ve been wondering why there are so many movies about the apocalypse lately. Any thoughts on that? Do people know something we don’t? Is the end of times near? I certainly hope not!
I saw “The Road” a while back and found it utterly depressing. Maybe “The Book of Eli” will be a little more hopeful. That’s a tough challenge when you’re talking about the apocalypse, but it’s got Denzel Washington and Mila Kunis going for it.
Washington stars as a man fighting his way across America in order to protect a sacred book that holds the secrets to saving humankind. The movie also stars Gary Oldman, Ray Stevenson, Jennifer Beals, Michael Gambon and Tom Waits (who I totally love whether he’s singing or acting).
The movie’s in theaters this Friday, Jan. 15, 2010. Check out the premiere pics below.
