After the first trailer for Frank Miller‘s The Spirit caused a tidal wave of negativity toward the film, it wasn’t likely that anything could save it. Even so, a second trailer has been released for whoever may be interested in checking it out.
Check out the trailer here below.
I will admit, this trailer is far better than the last, but it’s still not good. If all dialogue was taken out, it may just have some positive attention going its way, but alas, there is dialogue and it is horrible to listen to. That paired with the fact that the hero isn’t badass or intimidating and the villain is not only not scary, he’s fairly laughable, which makes for some bad chances here. Oh, and now it also apparently looks as if the movie will be PG-13; not that I know whether this content was ever supposed to be R, but it was probably the only way I might take a peek at it.
Deep down I still hope it does well, as I don’t want to see Frank Miller get all this negative attention. He gave me Sin City, dammit — for that, I’m forever grateful. It just really doesn’t look good at this point and I’m thinking the best bet is to go back to his roots and assist with projects like, ooh, Sin City 2!
