Official Teaser Poster for Frank Miller's The Spirit

This weekend is the New York Comic Con, so you can expect plenty more comic related news and coverage over the next few days. The official teaser trailer premieres tomorrow afternoon, but the teaser poster for Frank Miller's The Spirit has debuted courtesy of AICN. I was thinking about passing this up and just throwing it in the trailer announcement tomorrow, but when I took a closer look at it, I realized I couldn't do that. Something about this really captured me, and I think it's the classic look with the huge letters and so on. Take a look and make sure to come back tomorrow for the trailer!

Apparently this is another NY Comic Con exclusive that I'm guessing can be picked up tomorrow at the presentation. We'll try and pick up a few extra, but the real focus will be on the teaser trailer.

The Spirit Teaser Poster

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. The Spirit is currently set to arrive in theaters on January 16th, 2009.

  • I'm still upset that Frank Miller is adapting the style of the film to be Sin City. The comic is nothing like this.
  • m4st4
    This poster is Eisner style. Although, movie will definitely be 'Miller'. Good or bad? Trailer is needed.
