First Official Photos From Frank Miller's The Spirit

Last week I said that the next big comic book adaptation to watch was The Spirit. I stand by that statement with the release of two official pictures from Frank Miller's film.

The Spirit stars Samuel L. Jackson as The Octopus and Scarlett Johansson as Silken Floss, Eva Mendes and Gabriel "Who did I sleep with to get this role?" Macht as The Spirit

Okay, Okay - I know that they look like Sin City, but that isn't a bad thing. Didn't 300 kind of look like Sin City? That turned out okay.

It's also directed by one of the directors of Sin City, so you can allow him some leeway.

To see the images of Jackson and Johansson... yes...yes... continue reading!

Samuel L. Jackson as 'The Octopus'

There's not a whole lot to see, but these pictures do give you a sense of the films vibe.

To some Frank Miller is a genius, to others he is one of the men responsible for Robocop 2, I think he's closer to genius... so I'm quite excited about this one.

Thoughts, ladies and gentlemen?

The Spirit opens on January 16, 2009.
