The stars of Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For each have a character poster for you to check out below. It’s one of my most anticipated movies of the decade (it took them that long) so I’m more than happy to post anything that convinces me that this movie is actually finally happening.

Also, you will find below a rather revealing cover of EW with Jessica Alba; in the magazine she talks about returning to the role of stripper Nancy Callahan:

“She was more naive in the first film. Ignorance was bliss, in this one there’s no bliss and no ignorance. I wanted her to transition from being a victim to being someone who’s in control of her own story.”

In regards to the film, she says:

“Sex is absolutely what helps sell this movie, which is fine by me.”

Fine by us too Alba, find by us too.

The movie also stars Mickey Rourke, Josh Brolin, Powers Boothe, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Bruce Willis, Eva Green, Dennis Haysbert, Martin Csokas , Rosario Dawson, Jamie Chung, Jamie King, Alexa Vega, Julia Garner, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Ray Liotta , Juno Temple, Christopher Lloyd, Stacy Keach and Jude Ciccolella.

You can watch the first trailer here, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For opens in 2D and 3D on August 22 2014.

SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR Production to Begins This Summer

Friday, April 13th, 2012

sin-city

Remember 7 years ago when Sin City punched audiences in the face with how awesome it was?  Remember how almost every month since then there have been rumors about Sin City 2?  This may be hard to believe now but Sin City 2 is actually going to happen.  It was announced that Robert Rodriguez’s Quick Draw Productions and Alexander Rodnyansky’s AR Films will partner with Dimension Films on Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, which is set to begin filming this summer.

Sin City, creator/co-director/writer Frank Miller said:  “The first Sin City knocked out audiences who had never seen anything like it before. Robert Rodriguez and I are going to shake things up and deliver a ferocious film experience that is going to go even further than the first.”

Rodriguez has said that the plot will involve three separate stories from Miller: A Dame to Kill For and two new ones that have yet to be announced. Casting is set to begin next week with much of the original cast returning.  Miller’s A Dame to Kill For features the character of Dwight, played by Clive Owen in the 2005 film, so let’s hope they get him back.

FYI: It’s about time.

Cranston will voice a young liutenant James Gordon, McKenzie is Bruce Wayne/Batman, Dushku will provide the voice for Catwoman, and Sackhoff is Gordon’s love interest, Detective Sarah Essen.  The film is PG-13 and stay close to the comic with executive producer Bruce Timm saying, “It a pretty straight forward literal retelling.  Mazzucchelli’s artwork is beautifully composed and we were able to refer to the comic for about 80 percent of the camera setups.”

Batman: Year One hits stores this fall.

Synopsis: A young Bruce Wayne has spent his adolescence and early adulthood, traveling the world so he could hone his body and mind into the perfect fighting and investigative machine. But now as he returns to Gotham City, he must find a way to focus his passion and bring justice to his city. Retracing Batman’s first attempts to fight injustice as a costumed vigilante, we watch as he chooses a guise of a giant bat, creates an early bond with a young Lieutenant James Gordon, inadvertently plays a role in the birth of Catwoman, and helps to bring down a corrupt political system that infests Gotham.

Robert Rodriguez to Direct Sin City 2

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010
sin cityMr. Rodriguez made a recent announcement that he will be directing the long awaited Sin City 2 after the completion of Spy Kids 4 – wow, they made four of those?  Rodriguez said,Frank Miller and I are working on it. It’s slated to be the next one, but if the script is not ready, then we’ll have to move to the next one.” The script has apparently been done since 2007. It was Rodriguez that thought it still needed more work.  There is not much more revealed about Sin City 2 except for the fact that Rodriguez plans to bring back Bruce Willis‘ character, Hartigan, who was killed in the first Sin City.  “I wanna bring him back for Sin City because he’s so bad-ass.” Seems like a reasonable reason.  Sin City 2 is set to be released in 2012.

sin city 2 and spidey 4

Monday, March 16th, 2009

Spider Man 4 I could do without, at least for ten years or so.  SM3 was pure piss and I will never speak of it again.  Sin City on the other hand was one of the best movies I have ever seen, so when talk of the 2nd one comes up as do my ears.  In what might be a throw-away comment from Rosario Dawson she mentioned to MTV:

“Yeah, I talked to Robert [Rodriguez] and Frank [Miller]…They actually just finished the script for ‘Sin City 2′ a few months ago.”

Michael Madsen, bad ass.  Also the father in Free Willy.

Of course, this whole thing has been going on for ages, and who knows if Mickey Rourke will want to come back being a star again and all.  Moving on, Sam Raimi was at SXSW this past weekend and MTV got Raimi to dish on all things SPIDER-MAN 4:

“Right now we’re just working on the story for SPIDER-MAN 4 just that one film…”
“I do have a pretty good idea, but I’m just not a liberty to say yet.”

Raimi repeatedly used the phrase “villain or villains” in his conversations as to not even give away whether there’d be one or two.  Great, another orgy of special effect and next to no dialogue.  Slow clap.

“I can’t imagine making a SPIDER-MAN movie without Kirsten…Of course it can be done…” And should be by my count, she sucks.  To read more from Raimi on SPIDER-MAN 4, click here to head to MTV.
