Did it need to happen? Nah. Will I go see it? Probably. It seems like writer/director Frank Miller, is hellbent on making 2014 his year, with the release of the 300 sequel Rise of an Empire (which he hasn’t even finished the graphic novel for) and now SIN CITY : A Dame to Kill For. Incidentally the early reviews are still rolling in on 300…, but I’m pretty sure it will have a decent weekend opening, since it’s apparently filled with more blood than the first. Getting back to this Sin City trailer, I kinda wanted to see some really groundbreaking visuals, given how the original up the ante, but the first few minutes were just…well…blah. That being said, it does get better as it goes along. By the way, is it me or is it clearly evident, that director Robert Rodriguez has a strange love affair with certain mediocre actors? I mean visually their cute, but good lord, he’s setting them up for cult status and I’m not sure that’s what some of these young ones want. Anyway that’s my opinion. Hopefully this will be as successful as the first.
The film also stars Josh Brolin, Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Ray Liotta, Juno Temple, Stacy Keach, and Julia Garner. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For opens on August 22nd.
SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR weaves together two of Miller’s classic stories with new tales in which the town’s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more repulsive inhabitants.
