Illustration for article titled First Look Inside The Book Of Eli

A piece of concept art/poster from the Hughes brothers' post-apocalyptic Western The Book Of Eli has hit the net. It's our first taste of the film, starring Hollywood hot shots Denzel Washington and Gary Oldman, where only the power of knowledge from the sacred book (held by Denzel) can save the masses, and Oldman wants nothing more than to get his greasy hands on those tattered pages. Check out the full poster below.Coming Soon has the first look at the art:

According to the official synopsis:

"Washington plays a survivor who must fend off gangs and a brutal tyrant in a desolate wasteland. Oldman will play the film's villain, a "despot of a small and pathetic town, who’s determined to get a hold of Eli’s book."
