New On Demand today is Frank Miller’s version of Will Eisner’s seminal comic series The Spirit, a Sin City style noir adventure which stars Gabriel Macht as the titular vigilante looking for justice on the streets of Central City. His archenemy is the Octopus (Samuel L. Jackson) and, to get him, The Spirit has to swim through a sea of femmes fatale, including Sand Saref (Eva Mendes), Silken Floss (Scarlett Johansson), Lorelei (Jaime King), Plaster of Paris (Paz Vega) and the lovely Ellen Dolan (Sarah Paulson).
