The Spirit Femme Fatales Speak via their Posters

3 Comments

You know, for a movie based on a comic book that was first created in 1940, there sure is a lot of sex oozing out of every celluloid pore of Frank Miller’s adaptation of “The Spirit”. Mind you, not that I’m complaining, but I wonder if the finished product will have even 1% the sex appeal of all this advertising for the movie we’re seeing, especially all the film’s bevy of femme fatales — Eva Mendes, Scarlett Johansson, Jaime King, and Sarah Paulson. Each woman has gotten their own character posters with (presumably) something they’ve said in the film in quotes.

Now, being the clever boys they are, Lionsgate and Yahoo! Movies have joined forces to give you all four women’s character posters on one page, in swf form, with actual audio from the actresses saying their lines.

Head over here to see it now. Run your mouse pointer over the posters to hear the actresses say their lines. The pics (audioless, since I haven’t a clue how to embed swf images, being the barely technical dork I am), below.

Also, Lionsgate sent over these bigger versions of the new character posters featuring Sarah Paulson and Jaime King. Paulson is ELLEN DOLAN, the whip-smart girl-next-door; and Jaime King is LORELI, a murderous French nightclub dancer. Is there ever any other kind of French nightclub dancer?

    These are simply beautiful. I know some people (especially some women) think that Frank Miller makes his female characters come off as whores (and some of these quotes are subtly suggestive – in one way you look at them – but there is a clever duality to each one) but I think that these women come off as powerful and fully in charge of their own sexuality. Vivre femmes fatales!
