Adapted from the legendary comic strip, The Spirit is a classic action-adventure-romance told by Frank Miller, creator of 300 and Sin City. Filmed in rich, dark urban filmscapes for a noir graphic novel feel, the film tells the story of a former rookie cop who returns mysteriously from the dead as The Spirit (Gabriel Macht) to fight crime from the shadows of Central City. Starring Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Eva Mendes and in the vein of Batman Begins and Sin City, this is a sinister, dark crime-fighting tale with an a-list cast that's not to be missed!

Thanks to our friends at Hoyts, we have an amazing prize pack to giveaway in a combined GameSpot AU and game of skill for one lucky reader to entertain the harem in their dark urban abode - A 40-inch full high-definition LCD television from Samsung and a double pass to see the film.

Twelve runners up from both GameSpot AU and will also win a double pass to attend the film (valued at $30 each).

To put yourself in the running for this fantastic prize, we're asking you to become a comic book author and create the dialogue for Silken Floss (Scarlett Johansson's cold, cunning and sexy accomplice to Samuel L. Jackson's villian Octopus) in her meeting in an alleyway with the film's hero 'The Spirit'. In her motive to help corner The Spirit for The Octopus' capture, how is she charming him into following her plans? What is she plotting? What will result in his moment of action? Give us a short scenario and dialogue for this character (in 35 words or less).

The most clever and creative response, as judged by the GameSpot AU and teams will win!
