    SIN CITY Sequel Debuts at Dismal 8th Place with $6.5 Million


    [​IMG]

    The penultimate weekend of summer ranged from lackluster to terrible for new offerings If I Stay and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, making way for Guardians of the Galaxy to reclaim the top spot at the North American box office. Guardians took in $17.6 million in its fourth weekend for a domestic total of $251.9 million and will soon become the top grossing film of the year so far in North America. Globally, Guardians has grossed $489 million to date.

    From directors Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez, Sin City 2 placed a dismal No. 8 with $6.5 million. The sequel opens nine years after the first film launched to more than $29 million (many are questioning whether the gap was too long). Sin City 2 earned a B- CinemaScore. The sequel was originally supposed to open in Oct. 2013.

    Dimension Films and The Weinstein Co. are releasing the R-rated sequel, which was financed and produced by Rodriguez's Quick Draw Productions, Aldamisa, AR Films, Miramax and Solipsist. Although the producers wouldn't reveal the budget, the first Sin City cost $40 million (some put the sequel's cost north of $60 million).

    "We stand behind the film, and Robert is a member of the Weinstein family. We never expected this level of rejection. It's like the ice bucket challenge without the good cause, and is a major disappointment," said TWC distribution chief Erik Lomis.

    Critics Review of SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR


    Rotten Tomatoes: 43% Approval Rating (49 out of 114 critics like it)

    Consensus: A Dame to Kill For boasts the same stylish violence and striking visual palette as the original Sin City, but lacks its predecessor's brutal impact.


    [​IMG]


    New York Daily News - 2/5
    Some pop fiction exists in its own world. But once you find that particular planet dull, sitting till the end feels like being trapped in a funhouse. Which brings us to “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.” The sequel to one of the most visually striking movies of the last 10 years continues the graphic novel-inspired landscape of its predecessor. But the characters don’t click, and the action feels dull. Willis’ dead cop appears in a few dream sequences, which only reminds us what we’re missing. Without a similarly defined hero in the sequel, this “Dame” has nothing to kill for.


    Comingsoon.net - 7/10
    A relatively worthy follow-up to what was a breakthrough movie for its time loses some luster from the time passed while still delivering the originality of Miller's visuals and Rodriguez's flair for action. For the second time this year, it's Eva Green's presence that saves another sequel to a Frank Miller adaptation after "300: Rise of an Empire" earlier this year, maybe because Ava is a character with a lot of different sides and Green's daring enough to expose more of herself than we've seen before. Even so, one would never think they could tire of Eva Green's naked breasts, yet even they wear out their welcome.


    Rolling Stone - 2/4
    The followup to 2005's eye-popping Sin City is neither the dazzler I hoped for nor the disaster I feared. Fighters and femme fatales are the staples of Frank Miller's just-famed graphic novels. And Robert Rodriquez was wise to ask Miller to join him again to direct. The movie looks good enough to inspire a million screensavers. It's just that Sin City: A Dame To Kill For doesn't explode onscreen the way the first one did. Miller's monochrome palette, splashed with color that shines like a whore's lip gloss, doesn't startle as it once did. It's like running into an ex-love and realizing that, damn, the thrill is gone.


    James Berardinelli - 3/4
    For those who appreciated Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's 2005 campy, kinetic film noir homage, Sin City, the 2014 follow-up, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is unlikely to disappoint. It's more of the same and, although a good deal of the freshness associated with the original has evaporated and the stories aren't quite as well packaged, the second installment remains enjoyable, fast-paced, and visually inventive. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For isn't likely to win many new converts but it won't drive away those with a penchant for this kind of supremely violent, hyper-stylized content.

    THE HATEFUL EIGHT Teaser Trailer to Debut in SIN CITY 2


    [​IMG]

    When Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez get together, mischief always ensues. Deadline has confirmed that although Tarantino hasn’t started shooting the ensemble Western The Hateful Eight, he has managed to shoot a teaser trailer that will precede his pal Rodriguez’s Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. Tarantino confirmed during an appearance at San Diego Comic-Con that he would go ahead with his Western, which he revealed to Deadline in January he would scrap because the agents of one of a handful of actors he gave the script to had leaked it. It created a drama that included a lawsuit, a killer live reading staged for charity, and then finally a deal with The Weinstein Company to giddyap in early 2015 start for the movie that will star Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, Kurt Russell and others. How much Tarantino will have to show without yet shooting anything remains to be seen, but it certainly makes the Sin City sequel more enticing when it opens next Thursday at midnight. However, there's a catch: it might not be released online at all.

    Tarantino and Rodriguez first hooked up when they shopped the package for the 1994 classic From Dusk Till Dawn, which Rodriguez directed and Tarantino scripted and played a creepy sociopath sexual predator, who with his brother (George Clooney) go on the run and hole up in a stripper bar in Mexico haunted by vampires. Tarantino also played a role in Rodriguez’s Desperado, and they hatched some pretty cool mock film trailers in 2007’s Grindhouse, the B-movie homage that sandwiched trailers by them, Eli Roth, Edgar Wright and Rob Zombie. Rodriguez’s trailer for Machete led to an actual film getting made, and a mock trailer for Hobo With A Shotgun done by Nova Scotia filmmakers Jason Eisener, John Davies, and Rob Cotterill also led to a feature that starred Rutger Hauer.

    New Red-Band Trailer for SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR


    [​IMG]

    Dimension Films has released the new full-length red-band trailer for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For that premiered at the San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend. The film stars Josh Brolin as the physically altered Dwight (played by Clive Owen in the first film), who is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord (Eva Green), and then watches his life go straight to hell. Sin City 2 is co-directed by Robert Rodriguez and comics legend Frank Miller. In this trailer, you can see cameo appearances by each of the two (Miller has previously stated he has more than one cameo in the movie).

    Featuring some stylized blood, and a tease of nudity, the new trailer isn’t exactly not safe for work, but its certainly not safe for a nunnery. Or something of that ilk. The footage focuses on the killer babes of the city, as well as Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Jessica Alba’s characters, who seem to be in over their heads in some sort of crime type thing. We also see Lady Gaga as a waitress, who is also in over her head.

    The film also stars Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis, Powers Booth, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Ray Liotta, Juno Temple, Stacy Keach, and Julia Garner. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For opens on August 22nd.

    New Full-Length Trailer for SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR


    [​IMG]

    Dimension Films has released a new full-length Sin City: A Dame to Kill For for directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s sequel. The film stars Josh Brolin as the physically altered Dwight (played by Clive Owen in the first film), who is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord (Eva Green), and then watches his life go straight to hell. This trailer focuses heavily on the returning members of the cast, specifically Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, and Bruce Willis. There’s plenty of action and stylized visuals on display. A Dame to Kill For will mostly serve as a prequel to its predecessor, with all but one of the vignettes taking place before the events of the first film. Rodriguez and Miller's cameo can be seen at roughly the 1:37 mark, seated next to each other on the right side of the poker table.

    Interesting how the trailer ends on "Written by Frank Miller," for a few reasons. For one, Miller's reputation has changed considerably since the first Sin City movie. He parlayed his co-directing job into The Spirit. For another, Miller and Rodriguez were supposedly sharing writing credits with William Monahan, the Oscar-winner who penned The Departed. The film also stars Powers Booth, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Ray Liotta, Juno Temple, Stacy Keach, and Julia Garner. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For opens on August 22nd.

    First Trailer for Robert Rodriguez's SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR


    [​IMG]

    Dimension Films has released the first trailer for co-director Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. The film stars Josh Brolin as the physically-altered Dwight (played by Clive Owen in the first film), who is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord (Eva Green), and then watches his life go straight to hell. While the music they chose for this first cut isn't that impressive, the character transformations are pretty damn cool. Returning characters have a whole new look, which makes sense since it’s been almost a decade since the original film. Newcomers to the franchise have been beat up, cut up, or dolled up to the point that they’re hardly recognizable. A solid start.

    Synopsis: Sin City: A Dame to Kill For weaves together two of Miller’s classic stories with new tales in which the town’s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more repulsive inhabitants. The film also stars Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Ray Liotta, Juno Temple, Stacy Keach, and Julia Garner. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For opens on August 22nd.

    SIN CITY 2 Post-Production Finished, SIN CITY 3 Already Planned


    [​IMG]

    With Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For due out this August, you’d think the duo might want to take some time off before moving on to the next installment. Nope. It looks like, just as they’re wrapping up post-production and effects work on the sequel, they’re already looking ahead to Sin City 3. In a recent interview on SiriusXM’s “Ron and Fez Show” (via The InterroBang), Rodriguez made the following comment:

    “Yeah—the second Sin City– I was just here with Frank Miller last night and we were watching it last night,” Rodriguez told Bennington. “[We] finished the cut, effects are being done, it will come out in August.” He continued, “He [Miller] watched Part 2—he watched it last night with me and then at the end he said, he didn’t have any comments, he was very happy with it. And he said, now about part three…. Started telling me how he’s going to do part three. So he’s already there on part three.”

    SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR Pushed Back to Aug. 22, 2014


    [​IMG]

    Well it appears that director Robert Rodriguez won’t have two films opening within weeks from each other after all. The Weinstein Company announced today that Rodriguez’s long-awaited sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For has been pushed back nearly a year, from this coming October to August 22, 2014, making Machete Kills Rodriguez’s sole release this year. That’s some pretty disappointing news for fans who have already been waiting eight years for the promised Sin City follow-up, so hopefully the finished product will be worth it.

    The film’s impressive ensemble cast is lead by Josh Brolin as the physically-altered Dwight (played by Clive Owen in the first film), who is “hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord (Eva Green), and then watches his life go straight to hell.” The pic also stars Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Ray Liotta, Juno Temple, Stacy Keach, and Julia Garner.

    First Behind-the-Scene Images of Josh Brolin from SIN CITY 2


    [​IMG]

    Other than a tremendous amount of casting news, we haven’t seen too much out of the camp of Robert Rodriguez and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. All that changed today when the sequel’s co-writer/co-director decided to tweet some behind-the-scenes images from the production. Rodriguez treated fans to some “before and after green screen” images featuring Josh Brolin. The director tweeted: "Here’s bad ass Josh Brolin driving a Rodriguez-mobile. (A green box with a steering wheel bolted on)" Click HERE to see the new images.

    Starring Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Ray Liotta, Juno Temple, Stacy Keach, Eva Green and Julia Garner, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For opens on October 4th.

    [​IMG]

    Stacy Keach has signed to portray a main villain in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, co-directed by Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller from Miller's screenplay. Keach will play mob boss Wallenquist, described by Miller as "the one man who can't be redeemed in Sin City. He is pure evil." Production is under way at Rodriguez's Troublemaker Studios in Austin, Texas.

    Sin City: A Dame to Kill For weaves together two of Miller’s classic stories with new tales in which the town’s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more repulsive inhabitants.

    Eva Green to Play Ava in SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR


    [​IMG]

    Press Release: After much anticipation, Dimension Films announced today that SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller have chosen Eva Green (DARK SHADOWS, 300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE, CASINO ROYALE) to star as the film’s deadly muse, Ava Lord. Ava, the iconic character from Miller’s graphic novel of the same name, is described by Miller as “every man’s most glorious dreams come true, she’s also every man’s darkest nightmares.”

    Rodriguez and Miller said, “We’ve been wanting to tell this story for a very long time. Ava Lord is one of the most deadly and fascinating residents of Sin City. From the start, we knew that the actor would need to be able to embody the multifaceted characteristics of this femme fatale and we found that in Eva Green. We are ecstatic that Eva is joining us.”

    It was also announced today that Julia Garner (Martha Marcy May Marlene) will be playing the young stripper character Marcy. Production is underway at Rodriguez’s Troublemaker Studios in Austin, Texas. The film will be released by Dimension Films in the US and Canada on October 4, 2013.

    Bruce Willis Set to Return in SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR


    [​IMG]

    In an interview with MTV News at the Sundance Film Festival, director Robert Rodriguez talks about his upcoming Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, the highly-anticipated sequel to the popular 2005 comic book adaptation. Rodriguez confirms that Bruce Willis will be back as Hartigan in Sin City 2. As for who will play the 'Dame' (Ava Lord), the director says they have some choices in mind but they haven't finalized anything as that character doesn't shoot for a couple of weeks. He also remains coy on who Juno Temple, Ray Liotta and Jeremy Piven are playing. Rodriguez added:

    "The only story we've shot is the intro story, that's completely done. The other ones we've just sort of been piecemealing, shooting as the actors become available. All three stories have a little bit of footage to be shot".

    "[Jospeh Gordon-Levitt] plays a gambler. A very cocky gambler that comes in and tries to beat the biggest villain in Sin City at his own game. The story is called 'The Long Bad Night', he beats the wrong guy at a game... bad stuff happens to him".

    Ray Liotta, Juno Temple and Jeremy Piven Join SIN CITY Sequel


    [​IMG]

    2013 could prove to be the year of Robert Rodriguez. The prolific filmmaker has always been uber-productive, but this year, we'll get a double dose: he'll have two films hit theaters within two months of each other. The first, Machete Kills will land in theaters on September 13th via Open Road and and then four weeks later, Dimension Films' Sin City: A Dame To Kill For will follow. And with cameras rolling on the highly anticipated followup to Sin City, three more actors have joined the cast.

    Sources close to the production have confirmed to The Playlist that Ray Liotta (Goodfellas), Juno Temple (Killer Joe) and Jeremy Piven (Entourage) have all come on board the picture. Details on their characters are being kept under wraps for now, but the trio join some very good company.

    A Dame To Kill For is chalk full of talent including original cast members Mickey Rourke as Marv, Jessica Alba as Nancy, Rosario Dawson as Gail and Jaime King as Goldie/Wendy and newcomers to the fold Josh Brolin as Dwight, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Johnny, Dennis Haysbert as Manute (replacing the late Michael Clarke Duncan) and Jamie Chung as Miho. Production is already underway at Rodriguez’s always busy Troublemaker Studios in Austin, Texas.

    Jaime King Talks SIN CITY 2, Says She Already Shot Her Scenes


    [​IMG]

    Goldie and Wendy are back in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, but don't expect actress Jaime King to have any secrets from set to share. Though she's already completed her part on the upcoming movie, King shot her scenes before any of her costars had been cast. King told MTV News:

    "I was the first one to shoot on the very first day. I was like, 'So who else is going to be in the movie with me because I'm acting to five pieces of tape?' And they're like, 'Oh, they haven't been cast yet.' Literally, five pieces of tape and someone's hand. They're like, 'This is the other actor. You just roll with it with Robert Rodriguez because you can trust him. Literally I worked with not one single actor. I worked with literally tape. A roll of tape, and a hand."

    Since A Dame to Kill For will take place before Sin City, King's prostitute twin sister characters will be back and better than ever. Because of that, King said that her fans are in for a treat. "You get to see two of me at the same time," she teased. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is due out on October 4, 2013.

    Josh Brolin to Play the Lead in SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR


    [​IMG]

    Press Release: Today Dimension Films announced another big name that has been added to the Sin City: A Dame to Kill For cast roster, further ramping up the ensemble – Academy Award nominee Josh Brolin (Gangster Squad, No Country for Old Men). Brolin will star as “Dwight” in the follow up to Frank Miller's Sin City for co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller. The part of the “Dame” has yet to be cast.

    Dwight is one of the favorite characters from Miller’s books and the 2005 film. In Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Dwight is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord, and then watches his life go straight to hell. Chronologically, this story takes place prior to “The Big Fat Kill” (featured in the film Frank Miller's Sin City) and explains how Dwight came to have a dramatically different face.

    “Dwight is a constant character throughout the Sin City world and “A Dame To Kill For” is a defining episode in his life. We’re looking forward to Josh’s take on Dwight,” said Rodriguez and Miller. The film will be released by Dimension Films in the US and Canada on October 4, 2013.

    Brolin will next be seen alongside Sean Penn in the Warner Bros. 1940’s police drama Gangster Squad set for release January 11, 2013. Brolin recently completed production on the Jason Reitman-directed film Labor Day opposite Kate Winslet, in addition to Spike Lee’s Oldboy, a remake of the popular Korean film. Brolin last appeared as young “Agent K” in Men in Black 3, directed by Barry Sonnenfeld and co-starring Will Smith and Emma Thompson.

    Deadline is reporting that Law & Order: SVU veteran Chris Meloni has officially joined the cast of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. No specifics are given except that his role is a one of the leads of the film and that he's playing a police officer. It was confirmed last night that actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt has also boarded the comic book adaptation in the role of a new character named Johnny.

    Sin City: A Dame to Kill For weaves together two of Frank Miller’s classic stories with new tales in which the town's most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more repulsive inhabitants.

    Joseph Gordon-Levitt Joins SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR


    [​IMG]

    Joseph Gordon-Levitt will make his next film Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, the Dimension Films sequel to the stylish noir drama that Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller are directing based on Miller’s graphic novel. Deadline reports that Gordon-Levitt will play a new character named Johnny, a part that the filmmakers originally offered to Johnny Depp. He’s one of the core characters in overlapping story lines that feature returning players like Mickey Rourke, Clive Owen, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, along with newcomers that include Dennis Haysbert. Other tough guy actors will be added, with Gangster Squad‘s Josh Brolin among the potential names.

    Gordon-Levitt released a statement: "I love how the first movie uses VFX, not to make fake things look real, but to create a heightened world unburdened by the look and feel of reality. Plus, nobody makes a badass like Mr. Rodriguez."

    The canoodling that was going on between Gordon-Levitt and Marvel Studios over the lead in Guardians Of The Galaxy has come to an end. He won’t be starring in the film and Marvel is evaluating its other candidates. Sin City 2 is already shooting, and Gordon-Levitt will mix in his work as he moves through a busy month.

    Dennis Haysbert Replaces Michael Clarke Duncan in SIN CITY 2


    [​IMG]

    Dennis Haysbert, who spent several years as the U.S. president on Fox’s 24, is in negotiation to play one of the heavies in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Robert Rodriguez is directing the movie with Frank Miller, the comic book icon who created the Sin City comics that were published by Dark Horse in the 1990s. (Rodriguez and Miller teamed up for the first Sin City adaptation, a hit back in 2005.)

    Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Jaime King and Rosario Dawson are among those returning and Jamie Chung is replacing Devon Aoki for the sequel, which is on a short break from shooting in Austin. (Filming will occur intermittently in December and go full force in January.)

    One of the storylines being adapted is A Dame to Kill For, originally published in 1993 and featuring a man named Dwight entangled in a complicated and deadly relationship with a femme fatale named Ava. Haysbert will play Manute, the brutal and seemingly unstoppable right-hand man of Ava’s husband. The role was played in the 2005 movie by Michael Clarke Duncan, who died in September at age 54.

    "Manute is a character that has been part of the heart of the Sin City tales, and the late Michael Clarke Duncan beautifully established that role onscreen," said Rodriguez and Miller in a statement to Heat Vision. "We could not tell the story of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For without Manute and are thrilled to welcome Dennis Haysbert to the cast."

    SIN CITY 2 Begins Shooting, Adds Jaime King and Jamie Chung


    [​IMG]

    Sin City 2, aka Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, which began shooting in Austin yesterday, has added Jaime King in a returning role and Jamie Chung (Sucker Punch), who replaces Devon Aoki. Co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller are teaming up once again for the sequel to their 2005 hit adaptation. Their co-written script is a mingling of Miller’s comics’ storylines as well as a new story written just for the film by Miller. One plot was taken from the 1993 comic, “A Dame to Kill For,” and centers on a man named Dwight and his entanglements with a femme fatale named Ava.

    Heat Vision reports that King will be returning to the Sin City sequel to play Wendy, the twin sister to the angelic prostitute, Goldie. Mickey Rourke is expected to return as Marv, since the movie takes place both before and after the events of the original. Also returning in reprisals are Jessica Alba and Rosario Dawson. Aoki will not be returning as deadly little Miho, the katana-wielding assassin, but Chung will step into her shoes rollerblades. The character plays a crucial role in helping Dwight pinpoint the backstabbing Ava.

    Clive Owen, who portrayed Dwight the first time around, is reportedly returning to the sequel, but may not play Dwight throughout the entire film. The character is understood to have undergone facial reconstructive surgery to change his appearance. So, the search is on for another top-tier talent to play the new Dwight.

    Also yet to be cast is someone for Ava’s role, one originally written for Angelina Jolie. Another unfilled role is that of Johnny, a smooth-talking gambler that was newly created for this film. Looks like there’ll be no rest for Rodriguez, who just barely finished wrapping on Machete Kills before hopping onto the Sin City sequel.

    Rosario Dawson Confirms Her Return for SIN CITY Sequel


    [​IMG]

    With production looming closer, we’re starting to get word regarding the final confirmed cast for director Robert Rodriguez’s long-in-the-works sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Back in April Rosario Dawson was planning on reprising her role as Gail in the follow-up, but subsequent press releases for the film left her name off the cast list. Now the actress herself has confirmed her involvement to E! Online: “It’s in! It’s happening! Can’t tell you nothing.”

    The prostitute dominatrix Gail shows up about halfway through Frank Miller’s graphic novel , but the protagonist of A Dame to Kill For is Dwight. That character was played by Clive Owen in the first film, but in A Dame to Kill For he has a different face. We still haven’t heard if Owen will be back or who (if anyone) is taking on the character in the sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For opens on October 4th, 2013.

    Mickey Rourke in Talks to Return as Marv for SIN CITY Sequel


    [​IMG]

    Back in April, director Robert Rodriguez said Mickey Rourke was on board to reprise his role as Marv, the murderous brawler with a heart of gold, for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Speaking to MTV, Rodriguez commented “[Rourke is] all excited to come back, but he’s probably the first one.” Then in May, Dimension Films sent out a press release stating that Rourke and Jessica Alba were both set to return. However, according to Deadline, Rourke is only now entering talks for the upcoming prequel.

    Rodriguez is currently at work on Machete Kills, but once he’s finished with that film, he’s planning to immediately start work on A Dame to Kill For. As for Rourke, yesterday he signed on to co-star in Albert Hughes’ upcoming crime drama, Motor City.

    Jessica Alba to Return for SIN CITY 2; Release Date Announced


    [​IMG]

    Press Release: Dimension Films announced today that the highly anticipated sequel Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For will open nationwide on October 4, 2013. Casting is underway, with original cast members returning to work with directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller, from their script co-written by Academy Award winner William Monahan . Academy Award nominee Mickey Rourke and Jessica Alba are already confirmed to return.

    The script and details of the film’s story are being kept tightly under wraps. The remaining cast will be announced shortly with some huge names expected to fill the roles of Sin Ciy’s newest characters yet to be seen on the big screen.

    The original Sin City broke new ground with its iconic stylish look and grossed over $160 million worldwide. Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame to Kill will not only bring fans back to the world that Rodriguez and Miller created, but will also add a new dimension by bringing their unique visual style to life in 3D.

    First Promo Poster for SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR


    Though it’s tough to take director Robert Rodriguez at his word given how many times we’ve been promised that Sin City 2 is “right around the corner” over the past few years, he’s finally making good on two follow-ups this summer: Machete Kills and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. With production looming closer on both films, the first promo posters have now gone online.

    While the posters don’t necessarily reflect what the final product will look like, it’s nice to get a tease of what’s to come. Notably, the poster for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For confirms that Frank Miller will be returning as co-director alongside Rodriguez. Story details are under wraps, but Rodriguez previously revealed that the film would involve three separate stories from Miller: A Dame to Kill For and two new ones that have yet to be announced.

    SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR Production Begin This Summer


    [​IMG]

    Press Release: Filmmakers Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller, along with producer Alexander Rodnyansky, have announced that production will commence on the highly anticipated sequel to 2005’s Sin City, entitled Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. The film will be produced by AR Films and Quick Draw Productions, financed through AR Films U.S and released domestically by Dimension Films.

    “The first question I am always asked is “When will you make another Sin City? ,” said Rodriquez. “I have wanted to re-team with Frank Miller and return to the world he created since the day we wrapped the original, but have felt a duty to the fans to wait until we had something truly exceptional that would meet and exceed what have become epic expectations. A Dame To Kill For will certainly be worth the wait.”

    Sin City creator, screenwriter and co-director Frank Miller said, “The first Sin City knocked out audiences who had never seen anything like it before. Robert Rodriguez and I are going to shake things up and deliver a ferocious film experience that is going to go even further than the first.“

    The script and details of the film’s story have been kept tightly under wraps. Casting will begin next week, with many of the original cast expected to return. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For was developed by Frank Miller based upon his graphic novel, with a screenplay by Frank Miller and Academy Award winner William Monahan (The Departed). The film is expected to begin production this summer at Rodriguez’s Troublemaker Studios in Austin, Texas.

    pumped for this movie. i honestly thought it would never get off the ground. first one was great. return of Marv is all i need to hear. Rourke was basically the best part of a uniformly awesome movie in my opinion.

    Del Toro also stole the Clive Owen segment of the movie too. The Pez Dispenser scene was epic.

    lol good call. am i the only one who found clerks 2 highly funny?

    Rodriguez has gotta bring in QT to help out a little. I'm confident it will be good. The visual look + Rodriguez's sensibilities + talented actors like Rourke, JGL, Willis, Haysbert + hot women like dawson, king, chung, alba, etc. sounds like a hit.

    I love DESPERADO but RR continues to prove his lack of vision. I'm afraid it'll be the blind leading the beautifully blind and somewhat bland. (I think I've reached my JGL saturation point.)

    No I heard there was another guy. Somewhere.

    Was anybody else put off by the narration in the first few minutes of Sin City? It just felt awkward and forced. It took me a few minutes to get used to it.

    i found it a little pretentious at times but overall i liked the narration.

    what'd you think was the best segment?
