The Spirit Is With Los Angeles

By: Celebuzz / December 18, 2008

Wednesday evening brought an invasion of otherworldly glamour to the red carpet of Hollywood’s fabled Grauman’s Chinese Theater.

Actresses Eva Mendes, Scarlett Johansson, Paz Vega, Jaime King, Seychelle Gabriel and Jacinda Barrett were joined by leading men Samuel Jackson and Gabriel Macht to celebrate The Spirit.

Directed by Frank Miller (remember Sin City?) through inspiration from a masterful comic-book series by Will Eisner, this Lionsgate’s production tells the story of otherworldly hero Denny Colt.

Colt, played by Macht, is a murdered rookie cop who returns to life as the Spirit.  Righteously pissed at the forces of evil that killed him, Denny/the Spirit dedicates his afterlife to ridding Central City of its nefarious villains.

There may also be room for romance. Check out the trailer.
