Eva Mendes’ character in Frank Miller’s “The Spirit”, the deliciously named Sand Saref, wants you to know if you think she looks like a good girl in this latest promo image from the movie. Considering that every female character in a Miller story either ends up seducing and then stabbing her lover in the back, or just gunning them down after spitting in his face, I’m gonna have to go with “No” there, Eva.
Adapted from the Will Eisner’s graphic novels, “The Spirit” tells the story of a man who fakes his own death and fights crime from the shadows of Central City. The Octopus — who kills anyone unfortunate enough to see his face — has other plans. He’s going to wipe out the entire city. The Spirit tracks this coldhearted 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.
Mendes co-stars alongside Gabriel Macht, Samuel L. Jackson, Gabriel Macht, and Scarlett Johansson.
