Frank Miller's The Spirit Gets a Funky New Trailer
You might not understand what I mean by funky right now, but once you watch this new trailer for Frank Miller's The Spirit, you will understand what I mean. I'm sure we're going to see a lot more footage than this next week at Comic-Con, but until then, this will have to hold us over. To be honest, I can't even explain what the heck is going on. There is a lot of excessive stylized visuals in this, which might be a problem for some people, but I actually think it doesn't look that bad - despite it doesn't explain any of the story of any of what's happening yet. Although this trailer isn't at all impressive, I've still got high hopes for the movie in the end. And some of the scenes near the end of the trailer actually give me hope - I think it could be pretty badass. Hopefully Frank Miller doesn't let us down, but he hasn't so far has he?
Thanks to our friends at Film School Rejects for uncovering this trailer. Let us know what you think?!

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.
