Great Posters for The Spirit Designed by Art Students

Besides any reviews, this is the very last time we'll mention The Spirit, I promise. It's just hard not to continue mentioning it when so many great images keep popping up. At one point, Lionsgate put out an offer to art students around the world to design various posters and marketing materials for the film (you can see one that students from Washington DC's Art Institute came up with here). From the Istituto Europeo di Design today comes a huge batch of beautiful artistic posters for the film. And because these kick the ass of all the film's real posters, I can't help but feature just a few of my favorites below.
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. Lionsgate pushed up its initial release from January next year to this December. The Spirit will now hit theaters everywhere on December 25th, Christmas Day.
