First Posters for ‘The Spirit’ Revealed
Frank Miller’s adaptation of The Spirit won’t hit theaters until January 16, 2009, but the marketing hype is already underway. The first outdoor artwork posters for the upcoming movie have been revealed and are highly reminiscent of the visual style employed by Miller’s Sin City.
The film is an adaptation of Will Eisner’s popular comic series about a cop that returns from the dead in order to fight the criminal element in Central City.
Miller shared credit with Robert Rodriguez on the adaptation of Sin City, but The Spirit marks his solo debut in the director’s chair. The film stars Gabriel Macht, Samuel L. Jackson, Sarah Paulson, Paz Vega, Jaime King and Eva Mendes.
