New Spirit poster

As seen on here are some really cool new posters for The Spirit, designed for outdoor use. Its one of those 3 posters that form one larger image, and I think it looks great. Click to enlarge to a decent size.

Pretty cool. I really like what I'm seeing from this film. But since I've never read the comic I can honestly only get so excited. I'm sure coming from Frank Millar as his follow up to Sin City it will be something to behold. Also of note is the new website on the poster, which technically isn't online yet and will only take you to the main Spirit webpage. Still, you know more is going to be coming on this film soon.

As a reminder from the official site.

"Adapted from the legendary comic book series created by Will Eisner, The Spirit is a classic action-adventure-romance written for the screen and directed by genre-twister Frank Miller (creator of "300" and "Sin City"). It is the story of a former rookie cop who returns mysteriously from the dead as the Spirit (Gabriel Macht) to fight crime from the shadows of Central City. His arch-enemy, the Octopus (Samuel L. Jackson) has a different mission: he's going to wipe out Spirit's beloved city as he pursues his own version of immortality. The Spirit tracks this cold-hearted killer from Central City's rundown warehouses, to the damp catacombs, to the windswept waterfront... all the while facing a bevy of beautiful women who either want to seduce, love or kill our masked crusader. Surrounding him at every turn are Ellen Dolan (Sarah Paulson), the whip-smart girl-next-door; Silken Floss (Scarlett Johansson), a punk secretary and frigid vixen; Plaster of Paris (Paz Vega), a murderous French nightclub dancer; Lorelei (Jaime King), a phantom siren; and Morgenstern (Stana Katic), a sexy young cop. Then of course, there's Sand Saref (Eva Mendes), the jewel thief with dangerous curves. She's the love of his life turned bad. Will he save her or will she kill him? In the vein of Batman Begins and Sin City, The Spirit takes us on a sinister, gut-wrenching ride with a hero who is born, murdered and born again."

The film comes out Jan 16th, 2009.
