Gorgeous Banner for Frank Miller's The Spirit
A new outdoor banner set has debuted for Frank Miller's upcoming adaptation of Will Eisner's The Spirit. They've been teasing this movie for years (you can see an old teaser poster here), but now we finally have a brief glimpse of Gabriel Macht as the legendary comic character The Spirit. These banners are gorgeous - wonderfully designed with great tag lines that capture that classic Will Eisner feel. I'm really impressed at this set and I expect it to just get better as we near the film's January 2009 release date. Please check this out - you definitely won't be let down and I hope you're as impressed as I am.

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.
Surrounding him at every turn are Ellen Dolan (Sarah Paulson), the whip-smart girl-next-door; Silken Floss (Scarlett Johansson), a punk secretary and frigid vixen; Plaster of Paris (Paz Vega), a murderous French nightclub dancer; Lorelei (Jaime King), a phantom siren; and Morgenstern (Stana Katic), a sexy young cop. Then of course, there's Sand Saref (Eva Mendes), the jewel thief with dangerous curves. She's the love of his life turned bad. Will he save her or will she kill him? In the vein of Batman Begins and Sin City, The Spirit takes us on a sinister, gut-wrenching ride with a hero who is born, murdered and born again.
