"The Spirit" - Hype / Synopsis / Movie Trailer

I must say that I am quite anxious to see the upcoming film "The Spirit" this Christmas.

While I hadn't ever heard of "The Spirit" comic book character, I AM into this genre of film. The fact that dude who created "Sin City" is behind it makes it even more appealing to me, as I totally dug that flick. Oh yeah, and it also stars Samuel L. Jackson and two of the hottest actresses on the planet - Scarlett Johansson and Eva Mendes. (Grrrrrr)

Anyways, check out the synopsis below from the good folks @ All Movie Guide, and peep the trailer as well. - Ace:)

A resurrected cop does battle with a villain whose quest for immortality threatens an entire metropolis in Sin City creator
Frank Miller's adaptation of Will Eisner's acclaimed graphic novel. When a rookie cop is brutally killed and mysteriously brought back to life, he assumes the guise of The Spirit (Gabriel Macht) -- a masked crime fighter who prowls the shadows of Central City on a supernatural mission to keep the urban landscape safe. Upon discovering that his arch nemesis, The Octopus (Samuel L. Jackson), is determined to live forever even if it means wiping out the entire population of Central City, The Spirit must race to stop the diabolical villain from achieving his cold-blooded plan. But even with his unique powers, the brave masked crusader will face a series of deadly challenges as a bevy of treacherous beauties including deceptively sweet girl next door Ellen Dolan (Sarah Paulson), spitfire secretary Silken Floss (Scarlett Johansson), wraithlike siren Lorelei (Jaime King), seductive policewoman Morgenstern (Stana Katic), and French black widow Plaster of Paris (Paz Vega) set out to seduce or consume him at every turn; even The Spirit's one true love, a volatile jewel thief named Sand Saref (Eva Mendes), could ultimately destroy our hero before he accomplishes his mission of saving Central City. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
