'The Spirit' Teaser Trailer Reveals Spirit May Wear Some Type of Neck Adornment

Talking at the Spirit panel at New York Comic Con, the lecherous director Frank Miller (strangely, while dressed as a unshaven Spirit) spoke of his unending admiration for his mentor Will Eisner's comic, and of his hope of faithfully recreating it on the screen. So I find it a bit odd that, as many expected, Miller has made the film look like a slightly cleaner Sin City. True respect = smothering the original vision with your own high-contrast fantasy world? Judge the teaser trailer for yourself here, then let me know what you think. Is this guy more obsessed with his city screaming or that f***ing red tie?

And I'm aware this has been up for a few days. Deal.
