Registration for the gallery will be closing in a few days so hurry and register now
In my continuing quest to complete the DVD screencaptures for all of Scarlett’s movies, I have added 700 from The Spirit – including menus and a making of featurette. While not one of my favorite movies, it is visually stunning and Scarlett looks amazing!
Here’s the official text of Lionsgate Home Entertainment’s announcement regarding The Spirit hitting DVD and Blu-Ray on April 14, courtesy of MTV.com.
The Spirit Blu-ray Disc and 2-disc Special Edition DVD contain thrilling bonus materials including multiple featurettes, an alternate storyboard ending with cast voiceovers and feature film audio commentary by the screenwriter/director and producer. They both also feature a standard definition digital copy of the film. The Blu-ray Disc will contain an additional featurette not found on the DVD. The Spirit Blu-ray also marks the debut of the first LIONSGATE LIVE™ enabled title for the studio. LIONSGATE LIVE™ is a unique BD Live based menu system that delivers updateable exclusive content such as commentaries, games, ringtones, wallpapers, trailers and much more via a series of on-screen notifications and widgets. In addition, LIONSGATE LIVE™ will continually notify users to any new features across all Lionsgate BD Live titles. LIONSGATE LIVE™ will be available on select theatrical titles throughout 2009. The Blu-ray Disc also features Molog, which allows users to insert and animate shapes, text, audio and other graphics right into the film as well as post “blogs” about the film to share with other registered MOLOG™ users. The standard one-disc DVD of The Spirit will include a Widescreen and Full Screen version of the film and the theatrical trailer.
LA Times published an article with Scarlett a few days back. She talks about her struggle to keep her personal life private and Cosmopolitian‘s fabrication, in addition to her many projects. Read it here in our press archive.
Talking with her brings to mind a line about another great-looking movie dame, Jessica Rabbit; Scarlett Johansson isn’t bad, she’s just drawn that way. Like Mrs. Rabbit, her ripe looks and a voice like scorched velvet have a strange effect on those around her.
It’s a sad state of affairs when a young actress is notable for not behaving like an idiot, but it must be said that for all her paparazzi appeal, she doesn’t lure it with wildly inappropriate behavior.
“I don’t know when that became a standard for young people.” She adds that she and her friends go out to dine and dance like anyone else, “but we’re all responsible young adults, within reason I suppose, and that should be the norm. I think that is the norm, really, but maybe it’s not just interesting.
The Spirit made a poor debut at #9. The film earned $6.5 million over the weekend and $10.4 million for the four days.
Topping the list was 20th Century Fox’s Marley & Me, which earned an estimated $37 million. The dramedy, based on John Grogan’s best-seller, set a new Christmas Day record with $14.7 million on Thursday, surpassing 2001’s Ali ($10.2 million) – a record also broken by fellow newcomers The Curious Case of Benjamin Button ($12 million) and Bedtime Stories ($10.5 million).

I actually went out and saw the film myself and personally was disappointed. I can see why Scarlett would want to do the film as it does have some very cool female lead characters and visual style but still it just wasn’t enough. She did have had some wicked cool costumes, lines and a memorable entrance so worthy of Johansson fans to see, but all in all the movie didn’t live up to my own expectations. Feel free to discuss your own thoughts on the movie in the forum!
The Spirit is now playing in North America. Be sure to go out and support Scarlett as Silken Floss this holiday weekend!

During her 12/17/08 appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Scarlett Johansson blamed her cold on The Spirit co-star Samuel L. Jackson, saying she caught it from him. She believed that for this reason her cold had some “value.” During her appearance on The Tonight Show, she blew her nose into a tissue provided by Jay Leno. All proceeds of this sale benefited the USA Harvest, the charity of Scarlett Johansson’s choice.
The online auction, which took place for a week sold for a winning bid of US $5,300.00.
I have added stills from her appearance and will be adding captures and the clip very soon with a much overdue update of the latest interviews and many more things. It’s been really hectic and I will be catching up sometime soon after the holiday.
