Once more coming from co-directors Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez, and based on Miller’s popular Sin City graphic novels, the upcoming sequel to the impressively stylistic 2005 film Sin City will soon be hitting cinema screens nationwide; as seen by the release of the new Sin City: A Dame To Kill For trailer available to view below.
Based on two of Miller’s Sin City tales (A Dame To Kill For, and Just Another Saturday Night), the second instalment in the Sin City franchise will see a host of returning stars, including Bruce Willis, Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke, Rosario Dawson, Jamie King, and Powers Boothe, joined by a plethora of big-name talent which is new to the Sin City universe; including Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Looper), Josh Brolin (MIB3), Ray Liotta (Goodfellas), Dennis Haysbert (The Unit), and Eva Green (Casino Royale).
With the intertwining tales featuring a gambler named Johnny (Gordon-Levitt) winning against the wrong man, a stripper named Nancy (Alba) targeting a senator in order to avenge her lost love, and a maniac named Marv (Rourke) joining forces with a private investigator (Brolin), Sin City: A Dame To Kill For will be filled with guns, girls, violence, and the neo-noir trademark style of the first film, emulating Miller’s classic comics.
Aiming to take that style to a whole new level, Rodriguez chose to film the latest Sin City natively in 3D, telling Entertainment Weekly “there’s something about the way Sin City works that I thought would lend itself very well to 3D because the images are so stripped down and abstract… you almost can see it better in 3D.” Believing “it’ll be really cool” to experience Sin City in a new dimension, and that A Dame To Kill For “will certainly be worth the wait” when it’s released on August 25th in the UK, following it’s official US release on August 22nd.
