We recently got a look at Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, the long-awaited sequel to 2005’s Sin City, with images of Jessica Alba as Nancy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Johnny, and Mickey Rourke as Marv.
Now, the first full-length trailer for the film has been released — watch it here below.
The sequel, which sees Robert Rodriguez and creator Frank Miller co-directing again, was written by Miller and adapted from his Sin City graphic novel, A Dame to Kill For. While the film will see several returning faces — like Alba’s Nancy, who’s still a stripper, but is also now “an avenging angel” — Miller created a new character for film universe — Gordon-Levitt’s Johnny, a hard-luck gambler who “beat the wrong guy at poker.”
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For in 3D hits theaters on August 22, 2014.
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, the long-awaited sequel to 2005’s Sin City, is coming to theaters this Summer, with the first full-length trailer for the film expected to hit the web tonight.
In the meantime, the first look photos from the film, adapted from the Frank Miller graphic novel (Miller gets a co-directing credit once again), have been released and you can see them here below. The photos show Jessica Alba as Nancy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Johnny, and Mickey Rourke as Marv.
Directed by Robert Rodriguez, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For in 3D hits theaters on August 22, 2014.
Director Robert Rodriguez has found his dame that someone is bound to kill for as production on the long-in-development Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is now fully underway. Despite early reports that had both Angelina Jolie and Rachel Weisz both in contention for the role of Ava Lord, described by co-director/Sin City creator Frank Miller as “every man’s most glorious dreams come true, she’s also every man’s darkest nightmares,” French actress Eva Green has won the coveted part.
The casting of Green does come as an unexpected surprise – as the best surprises usually tend to be – but she has always been a talented and alluring actress adept at portraying multi-dimensional characters both beautiful and haunted in films such as Bernardo Bertolucci’s The Dreamers, Ridley Scott’s underrated 2005 Crusades epic Kingdom of Heaven, and especially in Casino Royale, where she played Vesper Lynd to Daniel Craig in his first (and best until Skyfall was released) time playing James Bond. Recently Green appeared in Tim Burton’s film version of the 1960s Gothic horror soap opera Dark Shadows and is set to appear later this summer in 300: Rise of an Empire. She also played the devious Morgan on the short-lived Starz series Camelot.
We recently found out that Joseph Gordon-Levitt had become one of the candidates for the lead in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. It seemed like he would immediately jump to the top of Marvel’s list, but that news has a quick ending to it.
It’s being reported that Gordon-Levitt will be starring in Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller‘s long-awaited sequel to Sin City, titled Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Because of this, the actor will not be appearing in Guardians of the Galaxy after all.
