The Spirit's Sexy Femme Fatales Finally Speak!
What do you get when you cast Eva Mendes, Scarlett Johansson, Jaime King, and Sarah Paulson together? Frank Miller's The Spirit of course! If you're getting excited just thinking about these four bombshell beauties kicking ass, then just wait until we share with you this fun little "talking" poster set today. We've featured a couple of sexy posters for The Spirit previously, including this one with Eva Mendes, but nothing compares to this. Yahoo has debuted the full quintuplet set of femme fatale posters for The Spirit with an extra special feature. If you head to their page and mouse over each one, you can hear the actual line quoted on the poster being spoken. That just makes your heart melt, doesn't it?!
I wonder if someone actually questioned the quotes the first time around and Lionsgate thought it would be "fun" to use the actual audio to prove that they came from the film. I know I got a kick out of hearing the sexy voices of Mendes, Johansson, King, and Paulson. I mean, who wouldn't want to hear Scarlett Johansson say "on your knees then" or Jaime King say "come to me lover." What a brilliant marketing stunt! This page has been open for the past few hours on my computer - I can't get enough of it!

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. The Spirit will hit theaters everywhere on December 25th, Christmas Day, later this year. Watch the teaser trailer if you haven't already!

I'm not sure about The Spirit's success, but the posters are far from "ugh." My question is what audience is Miller aiming for? An R-rate Sin City audience or a PG-13 [most every other comic book name here] movie? Posters tell me R which would be great and might be better for the film. Gut tell's me PG-13 and then the posters are going to drive out the family audience early and The Spirit needs to hook kids if it's going to be huge (a difficult task to start with--kids do no know The Spirit from the Green Hornet and why should they at this point).

These posters are far from great but damn do they get the job done, all of them are great but Johansson's is top notch. If i were to ever to get any of these poster it would be Scarlett's poster fo sure.

I feel this will be an envelope pushing PG-13 made to look R to draw in adults too.

Pretty lackluster too if you ask me the sounds and poster thing.

I think the only thing going against this movie (at this point) is that it is so old (1940's) no one has ever heard of The Spirit. That and people will be making Sin City references and comparisons. I mean come on, there is going to be a Sin City 2 that will (I presume) look like the first Sin City. Do we really need completly different movies looking exactly the same (visually)? Once we see trailers instead of teasers, that'll tell us what to expect of this movie. So far though, it looks interesting.
