More Photos from Frank Miller's The Spirit

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.

    i will wait for it come on video

    im still gonna see it, against my better judgment. i loved the teaser, but the theatrical trailer killed the buzz for me.
  • Frame
    I don't trust Frank Miller with a 35mm camera. This looks like a suped up episode of the 1960s Batman show. Especially for Frank Miller this film looks particularly campy.

    what do you mean this time? you've been wrong many times, but you may be right on this one. it seems to rely too heavily on the girls and doesn't show enough action, but i think it'll do just fine because every movie that comes out on x-mas usually does well and this seems to be no exception.
  • DAVID
    This movie just looks plain stupid. Everything from the actors to the music to the costumes just look ridiculous!
  • Ann
    I'm going to see it just to spite you, Alex. You seem to have been gunning for this from the onset. I've come to the conclusion that comics fan boys and film geeks just suck.
  • Keith
    I have to agree with Alex to some extent. the footage shown was not good. highly stylized, yes, but good? no. i was expecting a good film prior to comic-con but now my expectations are quite low.
  • Durr
    This movie was not shot on film...fyi Its supposed to be campy... Its a labor of love...and he didn't do it to please the masses... Those who like it will love it... Everyone else will hate it...
  • TN
    agreed! and 'the spirit' is comicwise as far from sin city as possible. i wonder why they did this trailer in the same style, but everyone expecting a new sin city will leave the theater dissapointed. i trust frank miller to make a movie that, at least, pleases me.
  • Keith
    8) No, its not supposed to be campy. The lead producer of the film said at Comic-Con that it is not, and Frank didnt question or correct her. I agree that IT IS campy, but when the filmmakers are saying its not supposed to be when it clearly is...well something is lost in translation. on screen that is.

    I'm with Ann and Durr on this one - FS has been running this flick down for a long time. I don't disagree that the trailers have been unimpressive but the studio cuts the trailers, not the director. I'll wait to see it on the big screen before I criticise.
  • fanboy d
    please, when this is getting reviewed, allow someone tthat didn't have their experience tainted by the comiccon footage to review it
  • Roy
    #6: You're right. Though I'm a fanboy, I sometimes hate my fellow fanboys for being anal-retentive against every comic book adaptation. I'd love to see them do something better, if they're so scary smart.
  • D
    Samuel L. Jackson's role in this is enough to keep me from seeing it in the theaters. However the females in it are enough to get me to watch this in the privacy of my house.
  • twispious
    the guy with the eyemask looks like a total goofoff but i'll give eva mendes all the time she needs
  • adam
    I can't think of any situation that could arise and get me to watch this movie. Yes, I've seen the comic-con footage. But that's not all- when (besides Black Snake Moan) was the last time a Samuel L Jackson movie was worth watching?
  • nelson
    when people say it looks to campy umm i think thats the whole fucking point the whole comic book series was cheesy and campy
