Opening January 16, 2009, "The Spirit" stars Gabriel Macht as the titular hero, a rookie cop who returns mysteriously from the dead and uses his unique anonymity to fight crime from the shadows in the stylized noir landscape of Central City. Samuel L. Jackson stars as The Spirit's arch-enemy The Octopus, and the film also features Scarlett Johansson, Sarah Paulson, Jamie King and Eva Mendes.
