More Photos from Frank Miller's The Spirit - Still Excited?

A couple of new photos from Frank Miller's upcoming film The Spirit have surfaced over on SlashFilm. We've already seen some trailers and plenty of other photos, but these are the newest ones. It's tough for me to even mention these because after seeing the footage that was shown at Comic-Con, I'm entirely unexcited for this. In fact, I think Comic-Con effectively killed all buzz that the movie had. I wish I could be sitting here telling you that Frank Miller is going to show us one hell of an awesome stylized comic book movie this December, but that's just not the case. Only time will tell if I'm truly wrong this time.
You can see a few more of these photos over at SlashFilm. I expect that we'll see another trailer with more footage sometime in the next few months, possibly in front of Saw V. Until then, the last few trailers will have to suffice. Or if you were at Comic-Con like I was, you've probably already given up all hope.
The Spirit is both written and directed by legendary comic book author Frank Miller, who only 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 will be premiering The Spirit in theaters everywhere on December 25th, Christmas Day, later this year.
