The anticipated sequel to Sin City, the highly stylized live-action cum comic book adaptation titled Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, made its debut at San Diego Comic-Con in famed Hall H on a beautiful Saturday afternoon and the audience got to see a clip from the film center on Mickey Rourke’s character Marv, as well as a teaser video of sorts with new footage.
Moderated by Geoff Boucher with a panel composed of Robert Rodriguez, who called the story one of the most original and groundbreaking graphic novels of all time, and creator/illustrator and writer of that graphic novel, Frank Miller, who was sporting wearing his trademark Fedora and admittedly, looking rather gaunt, but still waxed poetic about his craft and vision, a vision in which film noir meets surrealism, even on the printed page.
Sin City represented the neo-noir styles of the comic book come to life. Black and white colors, with ultra violence, stylized sex scenes, and gritty imagery that can only come from Frank Miller and be visualized into real life by Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino.
While the latter won’t return for a guest directing vignette, Rodriguez returns to direct its sequel, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, armed with a script written by Miller, some returning cast members like Bruce Willis, Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke, and Rosario Dawson, and some new additions like Josh Brolin replacing Clive Owen as Dwight, Eva Green, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Powers Boothe, Juno Temple, Jamie Chung, and more.
Dimension Films has released a brand new trailer for the film, and it is only a glimpse into the dangerous world that is Sin City. Hit the jump to check it out.

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.”

It took years of wondering whether director Robert Rodriguez would ever deliver the long-rumored sequel to 2005’s Sin City before the follow-up, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, was officially announced and began casting last year.
Fans waited a long, long time for that official announcement, and now they’re going to unfortunately have to wait a significant chunk of time longer. The next Sin City was originally scheduled for release on October 4, 2013, and that was exciting. But now comes word that The Weinstein Company has pushed the release date back to August 22, 2014.
