I’ll admit it, I’m more than a little interested in seeing Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. For many, this was the eyeopener that showed a comic book adaptation could look like a comic book. For others it was reaffirmation that a movie could be done only on a greenscreen. And still for others it was a chance to see another Jessica Alba movie. The latest trailer has landed and it touches on all of those elements again, and more.
Robert Rodriguez teams with Frank MIller to direct this follow-up to Sin City from a script by Miller and William Monahan based on preexisting stories along with new ones written for the big screen. Josh Brolin stars in the adaptation of the comic miniseries (Sin City: A Dame to Kill For), which tells the backstory of Clive Owen’s Dwight character as he is wrapped up in the thralls of femme fatale, Ava (Eva Green). Also new to the series is Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who plays Johnny, a mysterious gambler set on taking down his sworn enemy in a high-stakes game of life and death. Mickey Rourke, Rosario Dawson, Jessica Alba, and Jaime King return for the Dimension Films release, with Jamie Chung and Dennis Haysbert stepping into roles left by Devon Aoki and the late Michael Clarke Duncan.
