Book of Eli: Going to suck?

So, I just watched the Book of Eli trailer.  I’m not quite as psyched as I think I was expecting to be.  I wasn’t sure at first what it was and then I realized that I want my post-apocalyptic heroes to be everyday types and not complete martial arts experts.  What’s the story here, was he a ninja before the apocalypse or did he find some sort of Zombie Dojo? (Note: Excellent idea for a movie)  Anyway, if someone has more information, lemme know.  Until then, I’ll just remain cautiously optimistic.

Trailer – Jay and Seth vs. The Apocalypse

Woah woah woah.  Is this for real or a gag?  Don’t get me wrong, I freaking love apocalypse movies of every size and shape.  But, comedy apocalypse?  Yes please.  I’ll take an extra helping if you got it.  I’m starting to wonder if 2009 is primed to be the apocalypse movie’s second golden age.  In the 80s we had a real bumper crop of PA (thank you very much Ronald Reagan) and apparently shitty economic times have the same result?  Hay, if being broke is the price I have to pay to get Seth Rogen in a post-apocalyptic movie.  I’ll take it.
