In 2043 a world war has left earth in shambles.  For the past 30 years a righteous man named Eli (Denzel Washington) has walked America’s east coast determined to reach its west, carrying the sole copy of a mysterious text he has been ordered to protect. 

This is no easy task, especially since a hoodlum named Carnegie (Gary Oldman) is desperate to obtain the book and harness its ability to entrance those who believe in it.  What ensues is a fantastically choreographed game of cat and mouse in which neither man will accept defeat.

The Book of Eli earned $157 million internationally, double its $80 million budget.
