The Spirit Moved Up Three Weeks

Lionsgate has moved up the release of Frank Miller’s “The Spirit” by three weeks – from January 16th 2009 to December 25th 2008 says Reuters.

Based on the Will Eisner’s comic, the action-adventure romance stars Gabriel Macht, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Eva Mendes, Sarah Paulson, Stana Katic, Dan Lauria, Jaime King, Paz Vega and Louis Lombardi.

A highly successful presentation at the recent New York Comic-Con apparently led to the decision to move up the film. International release dates have not yet been announced.
