As unfitting it might be to try and sequelize the Hughes Brothers’ 2010 dystopian action drama, The Book Of Eli, there are some things worth considering, particularly if you follow independent action. For this, looking at the latest trailer for Bryan Sloyer’s own shortform offering on Saturday with The Book Of Perseus lends an interesting reminder of the kind of pensive, provocative and deep allure he so often captures in some of his work, in his inherent capability to shoot narrative drama as well as action.
And this especially ought to be a sight to see given the latter, with respect to Sloyer’s own trade in martial arts and ready to present his own inspired take on Denzel Washington’s own brooding, pugilistic drifter, driven with a purpose and armed with a killing instinct that doesn’t hold back. Actor/stunt performer Aaron D. Alexander is on hand here to help realize Sloyer’s ideas some, and… I’m curious. Fan films man… I love these.
Peep the trailer above and sub to Sloyer’s channel for the release, and have fun browsing while you’re at it.
