A theatrical trailer for Frank Miller‘s “The Spirit” has made its way onto the Internet a bit early.
The movie, based on the classic comic by Will Eisner, stars Gabriel Macht as a former rookie cop who returns mysteriously from the dead to fight crime from the shadows of Central City. Samuel L. Jackson stars as the Octopush, his arch-enemy on a mission to wipe out Spirit’s beloved city as he pursues his own version of immortality. And Mendes is just one of several lovelies in the cast. Sarah Paulson, Scarlett Johansson, Paz Vega, Jamie King, and Stana Katic all star as ladies that either want to seduce, love or kill the masked crusader.
“The Spirit” is scheduled to hit theaters on Christmas (December 25th) 2008.
