Down these mean streets a man must come. A hero born, murdered, and born again. When a Rookie cop named Denny Colt returns from the beyond as The Spirit, a hero whose mission is to fight against the bad forces from the shadows of Central City. The Octopus who kills anyone unfortunate enough to see his face who has other plans. He's going to wipe out the entire city. The Spirit tracks this cold hearted killer from the 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 the masked crusader.

IGN posted a video few days ago with Frank Miller speaking on the movie, and some behind the scenes shots, which you can see after the break. The Spirit, starring Gabriel Macht, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson & Eva Mendes is scheduled for release on Christmas Day, 2008.
