There doesn’t seem to be anything slowing the momentum of the upcoming (and by upcoming, I mean January of 2009) release The Spirit, from director Frank Miller. Yes, the same Frank Miller who is responsible for writing the source material behind such epic films as Sin City and 300. The film, which is based on the work of legendary comic writer Will Eisner, stars Gabriel Macht as The Spirit, a hero who rises from the dead and comes back to rescue his “screaming” city.

Along with Macht, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Eva Mendes and Paz Vega also star. From what we’ve seen — especially the content that we’ve been asked to remove by Lionsgate — things are looking pretty good. This trailer, while interesting and visually arresting, doesn’t tell us much about the film itself. It looks cool, though.

The Spirit will hit theaters on January 16, 2009.
