With so much attention lavished on comic book adaptations, it's surprising that 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' isn't projected to be one of the bigger films of the summer. Then again, it doesn't feature any superheroes, and it's a sequel to a film that came out nine years ago. But to stoke interest in the return to 'Sin City,' character posters have been released.
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For
There was a time when we thought 'Sin City 2' would never happen. It's been eight years since the original hit theaters and director Robert Rodriguez, writer Frank Miller and the cast all seemed to have moved on. But, lo and behold, a weird thing happened and 'Sin City 2' actually got made. Today, we've got a new trailer for the long-awaited follow-up.
The first 'Sin City 2' trailer is finally here, and it's been long overdue. Not only has it been nine years since the first film hit theaters, but also the Robert Rodriguez film (officially titled 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For') was delayed for a year for reasons unknown. So really appreciate this first look at the coming sequel.
In 'Sin City 2,' titled 'A Dame to Kill For,' Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez bring back their black-and-white, neo-noir world of corruption, shootouts and one sexy Jessica Alba. The dancing seductress still has it goin' on as three new photos from the film have emerged online, featuring both returning and new cast members.
'Sin City 2' has been rumored ever since the original film hit theaters and now, almost 10 years later, 'Sin City 2' is actually happening (even if sometimes we forget that it is). Directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller have brought back some of the film's original cast - Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke, Rosario Dawson - added some new players - Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Josh Brolin, Eva Green - and now we get our first look at what they're up to with the 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' poster.
While we patiently await Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For,' we've got some potentially exciting news courtesy of the Weinstein Company -- there may be even more 'Sin City' stories in our near future. Along with the upcoming sequel, Bob Weinstein says a television series is also in development. Hopefully we won't have to wait several years to see the results of this project as well.
'Sin City: A Dame to Kill for' is shooting now, and director Robert Rodriguez -- much like Bryan Singer -- knows how to use twitter to keep people interested in his upcoming projects. He's just tweeted some photos from the set that show some of the before and after process of making the film. The latest photos feature Josh Brolin.
Robert Rodriguez is never afraid to think outside the box. Just look at the latest casting news for 'Sin City 2' (dubbed 'A Dame to Kill For'). The film already has an impressive ensemble of A-list stars including Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Eva Green and Josh Brolin, but now the director has chosen Stacy Keach, perhaps best known as "Mike Hammer" in the '80s, to play a major villain in the sequel.

'Sin City 2' finally has its 'Dame to Kill For.' After many casting updates, including the return of veteran 'Sin City' actors like Jessica Alba and Bruce Willis, and introducing newcomers like Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Eva Green has just been cast in the title role of 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.'
