Looks like the trailer for Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For has appeared online ahead of schedule and we’re treated to a first look at the new film which hits theaters on August 22nd.
I’m cautiously optimistic about this sequel. While I liked the original Sin City when it first arrived in theaters, the film hasn’t aged well and I worry the sequel will suffer the same fate. However, the new movie is based on my favorite Sin City story and features a pretty cool new cast that includes Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Christopher Meloni, Ray Liotta and Josh Brolin, amongst returning cast members like Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke, Rosario Dawson, etc. More importantly, I think the casting of Eva Green as Ava, the dame the title makes mention of, is spot on and I’m thrilled she’s playing the character.
I really hope this new movie knocks it out of the park. I want a badass Sin City movie, especially with A Dame to Kill For as it’s central story. What do you think of the new trailer? Are you pumped for another Sin City movie?
