The theatrical trailer for The Book of Eli has arrived online, and let me just say that it's nice to see Denzel Washington kicking major post-apocalyptic ass. Right on Denzel! They're selling this one as a post-apocalyptic western that follows a lone man (Washington) as he fights his way across America while protecting a book that holds the key to saving humanity. Gary Oldman looks to be playing a spectacularly seedy villain who will stop at nothing to get that book away from our hero. Meanwhile, Denzel looks pretty badass with a machete and, well, who doesn't like to look at Mila Kunis for two hours?

Directed by the Hughes Brothers (who are underrated, in my opinion), The Book of Eli hits theaters on January 15th. Watch the trailer after the jump, courtesy of Yahoo Movies.
