If you saw the first trailer for The Spirit a while ago, you probably either said “What?!?!” or “Oh, I read that graphic novel.” If your answer was the latter, this is just eye candy for you. If you are in the first catagory, then this new trailer sheds a whole lot of light on the theme of the movie. Personally, I feared it was some movie that was simply trying to capitalize on the sucess of other graphic novel-based movies (such as 300 and Sin City). Watch the trailer for yourself and I think you’ll see it in a different light.
Wow, looks like it could be fantastic. In fact it seems as though it was specifically crafted to ease our withdrawl after the newest Batman movie. Eccentric villains, a shadowy protagonist, and a dark city…it’s a perfect fit! The Spirit even has that gravelly voice.
I’m not a humongous graphic novel fan, but this movie promises to be an action-packed hero saga if ever there was one.
