Forget the knives and ditch the guns. All Denzel needs to take on Gary Oldman's Mad Max-style futuristic gang is his mighty bow and arrow. Take a better look at these new stills from The Book of Eli.

Eli takes place after tragedy has stuck the Earth and the land is now all burned to rubble. Denzel walks across what was formerly the U.S., spreading the word from his magical book. When he gets to Gary Oldman's gang, he has to fight off the power-hungry leader who wants his book. So that means there's going to be one massive scene-chewing showdown between these two, no doubt. And apparently Denzel prefers the bow and arrow as his weapon of choice. First person to photoshop Legolas' hair on Denzel wins the day! Eli will be in theater January 15th.
