There is a lot to be dubious about in what Frank Miller has thus far released in terms of clips and trailers for The Spirit film due this Christmas. It’s still too much Sin City and too little Will Eisner. But if you forget all the history involved here, the latest trailer, available at Moviefone, does make one a little more interested in seeing the movie.
I just wish it wasn’t called “The Spirit” and it didn’t have Eisner’s name on it. We’d all probably enjoy it a lot more if it was called what it is: NOT Will Eisner’s The Spirit.
But at least this trailer gives us a smidge of hope.
