Even if the movie doesn't tickle your fancy, perhaps the thundering Christmas music in this new short trailer for "The Spirit" will. Frank Miller's "The Spirit", based on the comics by Will Eisner will open in theaters on December 25, 2008.
I initially didn't care for the original trailers that came out, but will admit that the movie is now starting to grow on me. Will just have to wait and see.
Adapted from the legendary Will Eisner's graphic novels, The Spirit tells the visceral, action-packed story of a man who fakes his own death and fights crime from the shadows of Central City. The Octopus -- who kills anyone unfortunate enough to see his face -- has a different mission: he's going to wipe out the entire city. 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. In the vein of "Batman Begins" and Sin City, The Spirit takes us on a sinister, gut-wrenching ride of a hero who is born, murdered and born again.
