The Book of Eli (2010)

This is a noteworthy movie. Thirty years ago a nuclear war brought destruction to Earth, killing millions of people and destroying buildings. Clean water and food have become very rare. A man named Eli (Denzel Washington) hears a voice telling him where to find the last remaining King James Version of the Bible and instructing him to go west where the book will have significant value. Near the end of his journey, he enters a town where a despot (Gary Oldman) thinks he will have more power by reciting verses from the Bible.

In The First Book of Samuel, there was a High Priest and Judge named Eli. He blessed Hannah to become pregnant and she gave birth to Samuel. Denzel Washington is three years older than Gary Oldman. The film was shot in New Mexico. The DVD will be released on June 15, 2010.
