“That there is a dame to kill for.”
Sure, we have plenty of questions about the long-in-the-making sequel to Sin City, the slightly clunkily-titled Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (did no one think to call it Sin City 2 and be done with it?), but there’s one thing we already know about the Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez production — someone will say the film’s title during its runtime. Fun!
The follow-up to the game-changing 2005 feature will continue the storylines presented in the first outing — with half pulled from Frank Miller’s graphic novels and another half written just for the film — but in some different and unexpected ways. The film will reportedly feature four sections, three of which are actually prequels to the stories from the first film. (And, yes, that’s why Josh Brolin is playing Dwight, a role played in the first film by Clive Owen, as you may remember that the first film mentioned something about plastic surgery that changed Dwight’s face in some big ways — that’s one way to make recasting work!). Listen, it’s kind of complicated, but we’re willing to bet it will make much more sense on the big screen.
Here, take a look at the film’s latest trailer — although storylines might not be crystal clear yet, the sixty-second look at the feature makes its tone, look, and feel quite obvious.
See? It sure looks like a Sin City film!
The film features a stacked cast of both returning talents and newbies to the franchise, including Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Josh Brolin, Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Eva Green, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Jamie Chung, Ray Liotta, Juno Temple, Julia Garner and Stacy Keach. It’s possible that even you are starring in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For and no one has told you yet.
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For will open on August 22.
