Lionsgate will be at New York Comic Con 2008 promoting its upcoming The Spirit based off of the classic comic by Will Eisner. Lionsgate will present a first look at the film on Saturday, April 19 in New York Comic Con's IGN Theater with guests including Frank Miller and Eva Mendes.
Frank Miller -- if you didn't know -- is the man behind The Dark Knight Returns, Sin City, and 300. Eva Mendes can be seen in films including Training Day, Once Upon A Time in Mexico, and Ghost Rider. She plays Sand Saref in Liongate's The Spirit.
The Spirit, which debuted in 1940, chronicled the adventures of a masked vigilante working on behalf of the police and is still regarded today for its deep and diverse narratives spanning film noir and crime drama as well as adventure, mystery, horror, comedy and romance.
In addition to panelists Frank Miller and Eva Mendes, Lionsgate will present The Spirit's teaser poster for the first time -- and both Mr. Miller and Ms. Mendes will be available to sign copies for New York Comic Con attendees.
New York Comic Con welcomes the legendary Frank Miller with open arms, and we're delighted to have an actress of Ms. Mendes's caliber join us. It is a true honor to have Frank Miller and Eva Mendes with us, and we earnestly thank all our friends at Lionsgate who are making this spectacular event possible.
