Eva Mendes' Double Down Sexy Posters for The Spirit!
One of these is brand new, one of these is a few months old, but they're both sexy posters designed to get you in the mood for the femme fatales in Frank Miller's The Spirit. We debuted the first teaser poster as well as the first teaser trailer all back in April. And I must say, this is looking pretty good so far, despite the obvious comparisons to Frank Miller's Sin City. However, Miller has assured us that this is not going to be the next Sin City, and I hope he's right! Either way, both of these new posters that feature Eva Mendes as Sand Saref are worth checking out this morning. They're not the best designs, but they are sexy!
Thanks to Yahoo for debuting both of these. They're not the best posters side-by-side, but individually they're actually pretty awesome. I just wonder how many more of these will we see before the Christmas Day release date?! I want some of Scarlett Johansson and Jaime King instead!
Adapted from the legendary comic book series created by Will Eisner, The Spirit is a classic action-adventure-romance written for the screen and directed by genre-twister Frank Miller. It is the story of a former rookie cop who returns mysteriously from the dead as the Spirit (Gabriel Macht) to fight crime from the shadows of Central City. His arch-enemy, the Octopus (Samuel L. Jackson) has a different mission: he's going to wipe out Spirit's beloved city as he pursues his own version of immortality. The Spirit tracks this cold-hearted killer from Central City's rundown warehouses, to the damp catacombs, to the windswept waterfront… all the while facing a bevy of beautiful women who either want to seduce, love or kill our masked crusader.
The Spirit is both written and directed by legendary comic book author Frank Miller, who previously worked with Robert Rodriguez to direct segments of Sin City. The film is based Will Eisner's newspaper comic strip of the same name that originally debuted in 1940. The Spirit will hit theaters everywhere on December 25th, Christmas Day, later this year.

Sexy looking posters. This movie should do well as Sin City and 300. Frank Miller is awesome.

It's so heart-warming to see a young one-legged actress making it big in Hollywood these days. How can such poor photoshopping take place on posters for one of the biggest films of next year?

ScarJo or Jaime King over Mendes? Sorry Alex.

This looks more and more like Sin City every time I hear new news about it. By the time it comes out, it's just gonna be a re-release of Sin City, or worse, a remake.

I still don't think we've seen enough for us to whole-heartedly decide whether it's going to be completely Sin City style. I'm going to wait for the first full length trailer before I make a judgment.

Hmmmm these poster look like amature hour, especially when you know the source material the comics of Will Eisner, it seems to me that when they turn comics into films they allways stuff it up...for example the green goblin in the first spiderman film....it was a guy in a tin suit....wow scary. If it had not been for the fact that the green goblin didnt look like the green goblin, i could of probably over looked the changes in the story from the original comic. I just cannot work out why when they go from comic to screen they change so musch stuff, if they want to do that why not write their own script.....too hard i guess, espically when you can butcher some one elses idea. I will not judge the remake ( i say remake because there was a TV movie made in 1987 ) Spirit film till i have seen more but so far i'm not impressed....but i guess when the creator is no longer kicking it's easy to pick the bones. Read The Will Eisner Spirit comics then you will see how lame these posters look.

both posters look like common,everyday ads-be it for gym memberships or fake jewelry,but eva mendes does a decent job with what crap she gets.

pretty simple posters but i think they do the job Mendes looks hot. This isn't at the top of my must see movies this year but i could come around later in the year.
