Just when we thought last week was amazing in terms of media updates we are now kicking off this week with some serious coolness as well. While I prefer trailers, it is hard to ignore what at least looks to be the official one-sheet for The Spirit.
Movie Poster: The Spirit
Adapted from the legendary comic strip, The Spirit is a classic action-adventure-romance told 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.
The good people at TrailerAddict have posted what looks like the official one-sheet for The Spirit. Like the trailers, there is a lot of visuals to be seen here.
