‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’ Red Band TV Spot, 3D Featurette & Poster

Published 8 months ago by

It’s been a quiet decade for Basin City, but directors Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez are bringing Marv, Nancy, Dwight and most of the rest of the gang back this fall in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. The sequel, which was shot in 3D, also introduces Eva Green as femme fatale Ava Lord, the “dame to kill for” herself, who seduces her old lover Dwight McCarthy (Josh Brolin) into a dangerous trap.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, like the first movie, will feature a number of intertwining tales. Nancy Callahan (Jessica Alba) is out for revenge after the death of John Hartigan (Bruce Willis); Johnny (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), a gambler, is also out for revenge against the corrupt Senator Roark (Powers Boothe); meanwhile, Marv (Mickey Rourke) wakes up after a rough night, surrounded by dead men, and tries to figure out how he got there.

Sex and violence seem to be very much at the heart of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, and both of these themes get put in the spotlight in a new red-band TV spot that prominently features Ava, Dwight and plenty of “sweaty, secret things.” RealD 3D has also released a featurette for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, which demonstrates the process of filming in 3D and shows off a few of the shots that will probably make seeing it in 3D worth the ticket price. In case you need a little more of Sin City after that, we also have a brand new poster for the movie, which you can check out below.

In related news, Rourke revealed in an interview during Late Night with Seth Meyers that he’s still none too happy about many of the scenes that he shot for Iron Man 2, as villain Ivan Vanko, being cut from the movie. When Meyers brought up the subject of Rourke not being a comic book fan, Rourke clarified that he’s “not a Marvel fan… I’m a Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller fan. Once I did a film for Marvel and they cut the whole f**king thing out.” Oh dear.

For those who enjoy Miller and Rodriguez’s style, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For looks like a stylish, R-rated way to wrap up this summer of comic book movies, and it certainly can’t be accused of coming too soon.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For will open in U.S. theaters on August 22nd, 2014.

  1. Eva Green rocks!

  2. They should get Frank Miller to direct one episode of the Netflix Daredevil feature, this looks gorgeous!

  3. Clive Owen? Or a look alike?

    • I’m sure we’ll be getting Clive for the money-shot. We’re also getting Brolin, so hell yeah.

  4. This movie looks like a big stinky poop.


  6. The people who made SIN CITY knew how to transfer a comic book to the big screen. The visuals were fantastic and no matter how violent, and even ludicrous, the action got it wasn’t offensive because you never lost sight of the fact that it was a comic book. Unlike those who now try to make a man running around in an outlandish costume realistic and logical, the makers of SIN CITY maintained comic book quality through and through. It’s unfortunate that some filmmakers who can play with millions of dollars never learn by example.

    I’m 85 and I can’t get to a movie house anymore, but I do have a 3D HDTV and I can’t wait for SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR to come out on Blu-ray 3D.

    • Yeah Sin City was always one of those rare adaptations where you felt a comic-book was coming alive, as one of those first films (next to V For Vendetta) to use the panels as exact storyboards I really loved the first one.

      Here’s hoping the new one will be just as good. The only problem I have with Sin City is that it tries to sell itself off as a classic film-noir; it isn’t. I always feel like it lacks the subtlety and viciousness of the original film noirs like Scarface (1932) or The Maltese Falcon. Sin City is closer to something like the Chinatown movie with Nicholson or L.A. Confidential, it’s neo-noir, super-stylized and sometimes forgets the soul of noir when telling the stories. That’s Frank Miller’s fault, of course, since they’re sticking pretty close to the source.
