Collider Goes to the Set of The Book Of Eli

31 December 2009 11:02 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

“It’s a man on a mission with something that everybody wants,” Allen Hughes said of the story for The Book of Eli, his forthcoming action film starring Denzel Washington. “It’s pretty simple. One man is trying to get something somewhere.”

In late March of 2009, Collider visited the New Mexico set of the film, and we were met by torrential waves of dust and debris that filled every last nook and cranny in about five minutes. Unfortunately, we were there for about ten hours.

Hughes, who is co-directing with his brother Albert, explained how the film’s postapocalyptic world came to look quite so unhospitable. “We allude to a nuclear war, he said. “We also talk about what happened environmentally; it’s a combination of a lot of things - diseases, famine, war. It started with a war and now the whole system’s collapsed.”

Albert, meanwhile, detailed the story’s origins. »

Things Get Violent In The Book Of Eli Featurette

24 December 2009 3:27 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The Book of Eli looks okay, but it.s hard to get excited for something that looks like any old post-apocalyptic film featuring batches of overly violent men in desperate need of a shower. I was hoping this new featurette from Yahoo! Movies would be the item to make me think otherwise, but all it does is enhance my original sentiment. It focuses on the stunts in the film, particularly Denzel Washington.s superhuman ability to learn the choreography. Director Allen Hughes points out that shooting the fight scenes are far more complicated than landing a single punch. Washington had to keep swinging for a full minute. Um, is this something new? The battle scenes do look impressive, but no more spectacular than anything else we.ve seen. Hopefully Warner Bros. can cram in another featurette or a fresh trailer before the January 15th release. »

New Behind-the-Scenes Featurette on the Fight Scenes in The Book Of Eli

24 December 2009 12:36 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A behind-the-scenes video detailing the stunts, particularly the fight sequences, in the Hughes Brothers’ upcoming The Book of Eli recently popped up on Yahoo! Movies. Basically, it’s 2 ½ minutes of directors Albert and Allen Hughes, star Denzel Washington, and stunt coordinator Jeff Imada (fight coordinator for the last two Bourne flicks) talking about standard stuff like the intensity of the sequences and how amazing Denzel was at learning the techniques/doing his own stunts. Toward the end, they also get into some semi-interesting analysis of Eli’s fighting style and how it relates specifically to the character and his motivation. If you check out the vid, you might also catch a few non-behind-the-scenes clips that weren’t in the trailers.

Over the years, I’ve learned to be wary of high-concept actioners, but The Book of Eli is one I’m really looking forward to. It’s got a pair »

New Book of Eli Posters Still Can’t Convince me Mila Kunis Would Survive the Apocalypse

14 December 2009 9:34 AM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Look, I’m sorry, I know there are a lot of Mila Kunis fans out there, and I dig the little lady myself. I just don’t think she should be playing characters that requires words like “badass apocalyptic survivor” to describe her. Anyways, here are three new “Book of Eli” character posters via IGN for your viewing pleasure. I sure hope all the film’s creativity didn’t get spent on shoehorning the word “eli” into those big bold letters. Starring Mila Kunis, Denzel Washington, Gary Oldman, Jennifer Beals, Michael Gambon, and Ray Stevenson. Directed by Albert and Allen Hughes, Eli shows off his little black book January 15, 2010. »

Three New Posters for The Book of Eli

10 December 2009 3:15 PM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The Hughes Brothers have assembled a fantastic cast for the post apocalyptic tale of one man against the chaotic remnants of a dead world, fighting to save mankind with his titular book.

Three new posters were released today and thanks to FirstShowing (via IGN) we can give you a look at Denzel Washington, Mila Kunis and Gary Oldman in sunglasses.

It’s an interesting take on the familiar post apocalyptic world fable, and The Hughes Brothers are more than capable of bring a strong visual identity to their work. Early buzz surrounding the film points to a great movie and we in the UK will be able to find if this is true on the 15th of January next year.

Check out the posters below.
