Scarlett Spirit poster

06.14.2008

Continuing the apparent marketing theme of "Hot Chicks with Facial Text" that was begun by Eva Mendes' character Sand Saref comes a new poster for Frank Miller's Will Eisner's THE SPIRIT.

This time it's sexy siren Silken Floss, portrayed with pouty-lipped domineering appeal by Scarlett Johansson. Click that eye to check out the whole image over at Yahoo, and be glad you're getting that for Christmas.

Extra Tidbit: Eisner's version of Silken Floss was a physicist and surgeon, while Miller's seems a bit more kinky. But then, she's paired with Sam Jackson's fruity villain, so outlandishness is obviously on order.

The poster(s) look fucking awesome.
I so can't wait for this movie. Didn't like Sin City, but this actually looks really great.

Uh, Mr. Ravenwood, I don't claim to know a lot about the character myself, but I do know that the original Spirit was created by Will Eisner way back in 1940. So, that would explain why he sounds like Dick Tracy in the trailer. Check your facts next time. Wikipedia's a nice start.

I wasn't particularly fond of the Eva Mendes one, but I feel like these two work great as a series.

This movie carries the name Spirit, and the characters, but not the style or aesthetic...nor will it have the wit. Miller keeps reminding us he's a one trick pony. The Dark Night Returns is flawless, but that aside, Miller lacks...talent? The Spirit should have been an animated film based off of Darwin Cooke's re-visioning (ie. Justice League: New Frontier). His story and art fit perfectly and stayed true to the source material.

nice

I'm definately liking the poster. As for the movie, I can still only hope it delivers. I think a better trailer would be nice at some point.

She's hot and all, but...

The trailers haven't done ANYTHING for me at all. I'm not familiar with the graphic novel, so they're going to have to do a lot more than show hot chicks with questionable acting talent to get me there - and I know Miller came up with the look of Sin City, but using it again here just seems... odd. Maybe Eisner used the same look as a fan of Miller?

I dunno. All I'm saying is, it ain't blowing my skirt up, kids.

And, the trailer's hook is... "I'm on my way..." ??? That was "Dick Tracy"'s

Color me skeptical.
