The teaser poster for Sin City 1.5
It's that time again for my monthly Spirit thread, in which I rage at the very idea of Frank Miller getting his mitts on a beloved classic character. The teaser trailer, which depicts Eisner's street level, non spectacular hero, running across wires and doing front flips over rooftops, is bad enough. Now here's some shots from the film, just for good measure.
Samuel L. Jackson as the Octopus, the film's primary antagonist.
Apparently Miller took "Terrorist Master of Disguise, Who Never Shows His Face" to mean "Flamboyantly Gay Black Man."
Scarlett Johansen as Silken Floss.
Once again Miller's love of WHORESWHORESWHORESmakes it's presence known, as Silken Floss is changed from a master surgeon and scientist to The Octopus' whorish femme fatale secretary. Lovely.
