A Preview of Frank Miller's The Spirit

"The Spirit," is reborn and back in Central City to settle some issues with the Octopus. The Octopus now runs the show in Central City and with immortality on his mind, many people must die before his plans to come to realization.

"The Spirit," is in hot pursuit of the Octopus and his thugs. Women get in on the action as they entice, love, and fight for the Octopus against "The Spirit." It seems like The Spirit has bitten off more than he can chew, but with cunning, courage, and daring "The Spirit," takes on the Octopus and his henchmen in a final showdown that will leave only one survivor. With danger, seduction, and mischief on every corner, "The Spirit," must fight on.

Rating: PG-13 for intense sequences of stylized violence and action, some sexual content and brief nudity.

Starring: Samuel L. Jackson (Octopus), Scarlett Johansson, Gabriel Macht, Eva Mendes

“The Spirit,” is based on a 1940’s newspaper strip of the same name, and has been adapted, by Frank Miller as a comic for the big screen.

Apparently there are over 890 visual effects in the feature as the film blends live action with a comic book feel. With the success of “Sin City,” this feature is likely to do well in the box office while entertaining many fans of the comic book genre. A December 25, 2008 release might detract from viewership as the Christmas season gets in full swing, but over time this film is sure to get the recognition it deserves.

See it for yourself December 25, 2008 while checking out the trailer below:
