Wow... a Spirit trailer that's actually comprehensible!

It took them three tries (and the teaser made people think it was a Dick Tracy sequel), but here is a trailer for The Spirit that actually has a semblance of plot and character, as opposed to just random hot women tossing off their best 'come-hither' lines. Sam Jackson is in geek heaven and the trailer finally acknowledges that Frank Miller didn't actually create The Spirit (Will Eisner did). Am I the only one amused that this is the second time in a less than two years, after Ghost Rider, that Eva Mendes has played the former childhood sweatheart of our tormented hero, who comes back at just the wrong time? It's an improvement, but considering how thin and junky I found Sin City to be, I'm not terribly optimistic.
