The post apocalyptic future is so bright, all the rag-tag survivors gotta wear shades. The latest trailer for the The Book of Eli looks like it was sponsored by Ray-Ban. Still Denzel Washington has no trouble throwing his machete around.

We're also going to have to point out the filter directors Albert Hughes and Allen Hughes decided to use. There is nothing light-handed about it, but it feels like it works. I'm excited to see Denzel kill a room full of ragged gangsters, but not so excited for this sunglasses fashion competition that's happening.

Official Synopsis:

A post-apocalyptic tale, in which a lone man fights his way across America in order to protect a sacred book that holds the secrets to saving humankind.


Eli will be out January 15th 2010.
