'The Book Of Eli' — Is This A Fallout Movie?

You may have heard of "The Book of Eli," a post-apocalyptic action tale coming in January and starring Denzel Washington. One reader noticed the film's resemblance to Fallout 3.

Reader Roger N. put together this comparison. While destruction and ravaged wastelands are motifs, not the story itself, the film does involve a heavily armed badass who walks the earth and is more or less the last, best hope of humanity.

Me, I think the most similar thing is the logo typeface. Dessicated overpasses, sure, but we'd expect them after any nuclear war.


    A broken overpass is just a cliche.

    There's really only so much you can do with a post apocalyptic wasteland.

    Wasn't Eli one of the scientists in the Half-Life franchise?

    ^ Yes, Eli Vance.

    Holy crap look at that font.

    You forgot to say, the script was written by Garry Whittah (sp?) the editor of PC Gamer magazine in US a while ago, and well known video game commentator.

    i hope denzel freaks out in this.

    i love when denzel freaks out.
