From the master of bringing that comic book feel and look to the big screens, comes Frank Miller’s (300, Sin City) latest film The Spirit. In this trailer we get a glimpse of the many women The Spirit comes in contact with and a look at ol’ Samuel L Jackson as the villainous Octopus. Now for those that don’t know, The Spirit is based off the 1940’s comic strips by Will Eisner. Here’s a brief synopsis below:
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.
This looks like it’ll be another hot flix to see especially with its visual look and feel. The music track cut to this trailer is hot as hell too! Be on the lookout come Dec.25th when this flix drops. Check it out below.
