New TV Spots and Clips Flesh Out Frank Miller's The Spirit
12.15.08 by REELZ
Lionsgate has posted two new TV spots for Frank Miller's The Spirit, which hits theaters on Christmas Day. The first features clips of the movie's femmes fatales in action with the voiceover "These women have a thirst for power and a thing for The Spirit." It's a bad girl role actress Eva Mendes, who plays Sand Saref, apparently really got into. In an interview with CBS News, she gleefully explains, "I get to play not only a jewel thief, but a woman who's been married 14 times and killed every last one of her husbands." The second spot highlights the conflict between the Spirit and the Octopus, played by Samuel L. Jackson, who just talked to SciFi Wire about how the role brought out his lust for ever bigger guns.
And if that's not enough, Blackfilm.com has put up six new clips from the movie as part of its December special on The Spirit.
