The first trailer for the comicbook movie, The Spirit, has been released. The movie is being directed by Frank Miller, creator of 300 and Sin City, and who helped direct the former. I know Frank Miller’s style in comic books of late, but I must admit I’m surprised to see this movie shot it exactly the same style as Sin City.
Now, don’t get me wrong! Sin City kicked all kinds of ass, but I wouldn’t equate the Will Eisner created character with Frank Miller’s black and white gritty crime style. Guess I’ll have to see it when it comes out, just with a slightly different set of expectations.
